Alternate title: “Leftwing autophagy”
Elizabeth Warren’s Native American problem goes beyond politics
There’s a ghost haunting Elizabeth Warren as she ramps up for a possible 2020 presidential bid and a reelection campaign in Massachusetts this year: her enduring and undocumented claims of Native American ancestry…
Some tribe members want her to apologize to Native Americans for claiming heritage without solid evidence. Tribes across America have spent centuries denouncing whites who claim Indian DNA without a clear basis, claims they find deeply offensive.
And some of them don’t care.
Full disclosure – My family history is that I’m 1/4 American Indian. Never questioned this, since I knew my grandmother.
Then again, I’ve never checked any ethnicity box on some form to get hired. Since Warren did, I suspect that’s why she’s stuck for an apology.
