Losing Her Million Dollar Bet

Senator Elizabeth Warren wants to affirm her Native American identity and to collect a million dollars in the process: President Trump in a rally promised to pay that much if DNA tests could “prove she’s an Indian.” Now she cites tests indicating her genetic Indian ancestry is as much as 1 in 64, or as little as 1 in 1,024.

No, she won’t collect her bet since no recognized tribe in America would accept a single great-great-great-great grandfather as “proof she’s an Indian.” Worst of all, Warren’s insistence on a “one drop of blood” standard for determining ethnic identity is inherently racist; what does DNA mean without history of cultural affinity or communal participation?

President Trump should no longer use the nickname “Pocahontas” on Warren; the designation “Faux-cahontas” is far more appropriate—that’s “faux”, as in phony.
