Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s DNA test revealed that she does indeed have Native-American blood. But after the Boston Globe repeatedly botched the math, gradually reducing the proportion with each new bulletin, we finally learned that she is as little as 1/1024th Native American. For the record, that’s considerably less American Indian blood than the average white American of European ancestry has.

Some on the left are trying to say this “proves” her claim to Native American heritage.  Warren even expects President Trump to pay up on his $1 million offer if she actually was proven to be Native American.  But like the left’s attempts to bring back segregation in schools, treating women like delicate flowers who need fainting couches, and importing an oppressed Third World underclass to do their field and house work, it’s yet another throwback to the unenlightened past when the “one drop of blood” rule meant that having just one drop of black blood meant you were legally black.  And they claim Republicans want to turn back the clock!  

As for Sen. Warren, Harvard denies that she got set-aside privileges meant for Native Americans (Harvard has enough racial scandals to deal with now, over their alleged bias against Asian applicants.)  But if she did, then she not only unfairly benefited from those programs, she took a slot meant for someone who really was a victim of racism.  That’s the type of fraud that shouldn’t be rewarded with public office.   

However, there may be a bright side to Sen. Warren’s now scientifically-proven “cultural appropriation.” A number of people have noted that this reinforces the traditional idea of America as a melting pot, something that’s been under siege by the left for years as they attempted to attain power by sowing suspicion, hatred and victimhood to divide Americans into warring tribes.  There’s a new documentary that shows how out of touch with reality are today’s officially-mandated racial categorizations, grievance politics and the well-funded diversity industry that needs to keep racism alive to stay profitable.

If leftists can defend Warren by claiming that being 1/1024th Native American makes her Native American, then they’re admitting that virtually all of us can claim to be Native American…and black…and Latino…and Asian…and everything else in the rainbow.  We’re all a beautiful mixture of all the races of the world, just in different increments. And we're growing more mixed with each passing year. We all have that in common. And that gives us something else beautiful that we have in common: regardless of where our ancestors came from or what our bloodlines show, we are all Americans.  

That’s what America is all about, and it's time we remembered that that's what really matters.

    Ref DNA testing I am sure 1/1024th percent is within the margin if error for this test.

    I think Senator Warren really enlarged her nick-name Thousandth-Pocahontas.

    Seems like they should be able to ask Warren to pay her tuition grant money back...

    Warren is a joke. I recently had a DNA test. It showed I have .7% African DNA. This is more than Warren's Native American DNA. So...even though I have blond hair and green eyes, can I claim to be an African-American when it benefits me? I think not.

    If you will check with the Native American tribes (like those in Oklahoma), you will find there is a required percentage of indian heritage before you eligible for benefits under their programs. My former husband was 3/16, and was not eligible for any benefits. I think Senator Warren misses the mark for being Native American. She is AMERICAN, like the rest of us, and needs to act like it!

    I wanted to state an observation. I have had my DNA profiled and found, sadly, to specifically have no trace of Native American DNA. The Boston Globe admitted on 10/15/18 that Native American DNA was not used in the Warren comparison. Samples from Mexico, Peru, and Columbia were used to, "stand in for Native American " DNA, Was this because a previous DNA test revealed that Warren had no Native American DNA so the stand-ins were then used to help prove some possible "Indian" DNA from any continent? I would like to point out that EVEN if the 1/1024 was Native American , the minimal percentage blood quantum required to be considered native American is 1/64th!

    I also saw that the man who did the private DNA test said that he didn't use any Native American DNA, only DNA from Mexico, Europe and South America.

    I believe you have to be at least 25% native american if you are going to college and wanting a scholarship based on that heritage.....And Warren wants us to consider her minute amount of native american heritage for what purpose?

    All those who are celebrating the result of Elizabeth Warren's DNA test will be the first to deny that every DNA test will undeniably show that the subject is first generation male or female.

    Like Elizabeth Warren, I too was told that there was native American ancestry in my family tree. Having researched my family tree for several years, I determined that there was no native American heritage but still I did wonder. A couple of years ago, I decided to have my DNA checked to put to rest the declaration that I was of native American descent. Several weeks later, the results came back and not to my surprise there was not even a fraction, of a fraction of a fraction of native American DNA in my bloodline. Family histories can often be incorrect. Having said that I do suggest to Mrs. Warren that if Donald Trump does write her a check for a favorite charity, that she send the money to a Cherokee reservation as they no doubt could use the money and perhaps make her feel a little bit better about the lie she told to Harvard in order to gain employment. One does wonder that when being interviewed for her position, did the interviewer take one look at this woman who is whiter than Frosty the Snowman and realize that she could not possibly be of native American heritage?

    Hello, Governor. There is more than one reason to question Warren's DNA results, whatever they mean. We are told that her DNA sample was sent anonymously to a noted genetics lab at that liberal bubble college, Stanford. I wonder how many private DNA analyses the Stanford lab does every week- I am betting none. So the sudden arrival of a high priority sample could easily suggest the donor was Warren. She needs to re-test anonymously under supervision and the sample be sent to a big commercial company such as FamilyTreeDNA or Good luck, Pocahontas.

    "Technical" question - Native Americans are said to have come here from Asia bout 15,000 years ago. Can this DNA test distinguish a small part of Native American from a small part of Mongol ancestry? Many Eastern Europeans have features that clearly relate them to Gengis Khan and his people. Maybe Ms. Warren has a trace of Pennsylvania Dutch, or Polish, or Ukranian in her background? Can this DNA test distinguish?

    Senator Warren must have forgot to study before taking here DNA test.
