Curious what you all think. How much DNA does a white person need before they can say they are not white they are in fact Native American?

Shouldnt it be more than Neanderthal?

Warren is 0.09765625% Native American.

Modern humans have 1.8-2.6% Neanderthal DNA.

Seems like Warren is more Neanderthal than Native American, no?

It doesn't? So 0 percent and I am Native American?

Yes, that is their opinion. Just curious what the average liberal thinks. There is no right or wrong answer, only opinions.

Perhaps the question should be, if we identify as Native American does that make it so?

I did not realize there was a debate going on. You said percentage did not matter, I asked a question. It seems like you simply do not want to answer and give your opinion, very odd.

I believe that is considered racist as she is now NA and not White.

25%



To give you an example, the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians a minimum of 1/16 degree of Cherokee blood for tribal enrolment, while the Bureau of Indian Affairs’ Higher Education Grant expects you to have the minimum of ¼ Native American blood percentages. That is 25% of your blood is from Native American ancestors.

Warren is less than I, far less... did I apply for college or a job on the status of being a minority. No! It would be illegal. And Warren did this.

Although I’m not a liberal I do seem to have the ability to apply liberal logic.

And liberal logic says :zero percent, one only has to ‘identify’ as Native American and they can immediately claim to be Native American.

Unless of course you’re a non liberal who ‘identifies’ as Native American, in which case you’re simply ‘racist’.

You quoted:

"So 0% and I am Native American" - very odd.

Yes it does, apparently no only to the Tribes who
will pay money but to the Cherokee Nation.

This is a big whoops for Warren, she should be very embarrassed.
