Answers:

1. Yes, she printed it on a form for employment at an institution, then she failed to correct it later when another institution classified her according to it. So, not once, but twice.

2. No.

If you don't hire minorities, enough of each gender, different age groups. You open yourself up to lawsuits.

Its alleged she was listed as a minority on top of being female, fudging the numbers.

Edit: I'll try and clarify the best I can, when I was doing the hiring for a corporation it was explained to me as this.

So you try and keep as diverse of a mix of employees as possible. We would hire in order no matter what and have people on a probationary period so that we didn't look selective.

However, upper level positions were outspokenly filled to purposefully inflate diversity.

The reason is, lets say you have 90% men, and only 5% black employees in an area where 30% is black, if someone sues you for racial discrimination it won't look good. Same since you only have 10% women.

I'm not sure if there is any kickbacks other than self preservation.

But you do have to report these numbers either way, and you can be audited.

'Moonbat' is Warren's Cherokee name.


I always wondered what mine would be.

The only way she could have topped that is if she was a wounded vet.

I know there are plenty of people who want to lob hand grenades at her so I say she joins the military and goes for the superfecta.

Can I sue white America for the % of Indian I am not? Guys, Im am a dem now! I get it finally.

I am only 1/128 but I hold the story close to me my 1/16th great grad mother told me about their journey. She shared the oppression and explained that it really hurt Oklahoma's pride and progress. I do claim Cherokee Indian Citizen with CDIB but its not about my blood.

Actually its not about anything. I am an American now. Very proud American. Thats all that should count. Maybe I will go hang out with a liberal friend and have a good time.

I can think of a couple Native American women who've had my DNA in them.
I wonder if they can use that to qualify for White Privilege.

Erm, the scientist appears to have not used any Native Indian DNA in his analysis as it was not available. He substituted Peruvian, Mexican and Columbian.

Absolutely effing priceless!



One of the architects of President Barack Obama's 2012 re-election vented frustration with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) after she released her DNA test showing evidence of Native American ancestry, tweeting "Why can't Dems ever stay focused???"

Many kids heard stories of a sponge who lived in a pineapple under the sea... Can we classify them as aquatic animals? Or only the ones who identify that way?

I'm sure there's a box for it on birth certificates now.

If I cant even relate to my parents, how the hell can I relate to our ancestors "coming to America/coming from America? I cant. Moot point but glad she found a little vindication on Trumps harsh words. Maybe if we were more PC she could have avoided the situation. Just trying the view outside my echo chamber. Not easy to do.

I see the left fighting for future planet and screw humans. I see the right fighting for humans and screw the planet. The middle will yield results you realize. Both parties. Mine and the left.

Here's the major difference where you are WRONG!! Warren was never accused of committing a crime.

But, you're the one comparing Kavanaugh's sexual assault, rape and conspiracy to commit rape allegations to Warren claiming partial American Indian lineage. Not me. One person is accused of a crime, one is not. Apples to helicopters!

Quick question

Is she doing this for any other reason besides from brownie points when native American discussions come up in Congress? This seems like some sort of r/AsABlackMan (or in this case AsANativeWoman) case
