During a commencement speech at Morgan State University in Baltimore, Maryland, on Friday, Elizabeth Warren finally admitted that she does not consider herself a person of color.
â€œIâ€™m not a person of color. And I havenâ€™t lived your life or experienced anything like the subtle prejudice, or more overt harm, that you may have experienced just because of the color of your skin,â€ Warren said in the speech.
Warren’s recent DNA profile release indicated that she had a native American ancestor between 6 and 10 generations ago, which was laughed at by by many of her political opponents and even offended real native american leaders such as Chuck Hoskin Jr., Secretary of State of the Cherokee Nation, who said that Warren’s ancestral claim was inappropriate and wrong, especially for recalling such a week biological linkage.
“A DNA test is useless to determine tribal citizenship. Current DNA tests do not even distinguish whether a person’s ancestors were indigenous to North or South America,” said Hoskin.
“Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong.”
