You’re a Democrat. Your party has grown and derived evermore of its core power and influence from a racial grievances, quotas, and spoils system. But you are a white Democrat, so other Democrats tell you that’s something you should be ashamed of. The temptation to steal some of that power and privilege for yourself from your party’s racial set-asides cookie-jar is great. Too great, in fact for a growing number of otherwise average white people to resist. The lengths that some of these people have gone to do this ranges from the bizarre to just plain opportunistic and unethical.

Enter Elizabeth Warren. She looked in the mirror. She had prominent cheekbones. No, make that high cheekbones. Indians have high cheekbones. Ergo- Warren is an Indian! This also means all white people- nay, all people- with high cheekbones are also Indians!
Warren was listed as Native American in the Harvard and the University of Pennsylvania law faculty directories. Does anyone not think that created an advantage for her when she later went to get a job? Or get into politics?
Then, several people of actual Native American descent sent her DNA tests to put the allegation of lying about her heritage for personal advantage to bed. What did she do? She sent the kits back and stated “I know who I am.” (Source)
The best anyone has hazarded an actual figure for Warren’s heritage is 1/32 Native American, and then recanted on that. The Washington Post’s “Fact Checker” page has actually decided against judging the issue at all, offering “no rating” (Source)
When CNN can’t even come up with a fig leaf for a leading far-Left Democrat, she is on shaky ground. When you refuse the most easy and basic test to clear your name, that is proof positive that she is a liar.
This is what ACTUAL cultural appropriation looks like!
