This article is one of the most rich pieces I've read in some time. The best part is, I think HuffPo wrote this seriously.


Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) made public the results of a DNA test on Monday, which an expert said shows “strong evidence’’ that she has a Native American ancestor.



“The vast majority” of Warren’s ancestry is European but “the results strongly support the existence of an unadmixed Native American ancestor” six to 10 generations ago, according to Carlos D. Bustamante, a Stanford University professor who analyzed the results.



This means she could be 1/32nd Native American, or just 1/512th Native American if the ancestor is 10 generations back.


Clearly enough for her to get a house on a reservation and get some of that sweet sweet casino money.


She possesses 12 times more Native American blood than a white person from Great Britain, the report found, and 10 times more than a white person from Utah.
HuffPo

Wow, that's incredible.


She really wouldn't let go of this one. But let it be known everyone, she is 10 times less white than a Caucasian person in Utah. #news.

So she isn’t Native American then?
She would be very very very slightly Metis.

Possibly Native Indian blood from 10 generations back???
Is this like Dr Ford's polygraph?

I think you can end up with 1/512 Native American DNA if you just lick a Cherokee.

More importantly, after I do this can I open a casino and bilk the pale face?

I say good on her for doing this after she was called a liar when she first said it. The percentage isn't that high but at least it backs her original claim.

U funny, but on a serious note, who is considered ethnic, a person of color, minority etc... It is one drop of blood, 50%, is it how much you look like that ethnicity?

Who wrote that piece is about 1/1th doosh.

This kind of idiocy is what South Park was ripping on in S21E03:



Obsessing about this sort of thing BTW, Eugenicists pioneered that entire line of thinking.

And they're who inspired the Nazi's into all that 1/4 Jew = such and such, type noise, the prioritizing of people based on this 'fractional racism' we'll call it.

Funny thing is they probably didnt even worry themselves of someone happened to be 1/512th Jew.

You can actually identify as what ever you want these days, but that doesn’t mean anyone will believe you.

Stop bashing Zee Germans, they only went back to great-grandparents on their Nuremberg racial purity laws. This is your great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandparent, or basically someone you are about as related to as a rutabaga.

Nah man, you just don't understand how it works, and that's OK.

You can prove what you are, but what truly matters is what you identify as.

You might want to rethink that
If you tested a South African , they just may test with that percentage....
Or someone from China .
Or someone from Iraq.

it looks to me more like - barrel scraping

wen ms warren first claimed that she was " native " - did she actuallly have any evidence of this alleged native ancesstor " 6 ~ 10 gen back " ??????????

she has never shown any geaneology evidence

i suspect that this DNA test was taken for a completely different reason - and the " surprise " - POSSIBLE native ancestor = being milked for all its worth

Most of my good friends I grew up with played for Team Brown. We just got together a few weeks ago for my one friend's BF's birthday, he's about as white as you can get being Irish. So when White Guy Steve was asking me why I was goofing on him since I'm 'white' too I said I'm Mediterranean and down with Team Brown. My colored brothers from other mothers agreed with me and then we beat his honky ass for being a racist.

It seems someone could literally have douche in their ancestry, no?

Artificial insemination using such a plastic doohickey. If the spermatozoa rubbed up against some plastic residues on its way, could in fact alter the DNA markers, no?

Unless she has an ancestor on the Dawes Final Rolls.
