WELL, WE CAN HOPE: Did Elizabeth Warren Just Kill Identity Politics? If the Massachusetts senator is now a person of color then the term has no meaning.

At least according to the report from Professor Bustamante, it’s possible that Sen. Warren has far less than one percent Native American ancestry, and that her genetic makeup is perhaps similar to that of the average white person in the U.S. Could this create a problem for the senator both among those who have never claimed minority status and those who believe they clearly deserve it? . . .

Before facing President Trump in a 2020 debate, Sen. Warren will first need to win over the Democrats who vote in presidential primaries. If these voters accept her as a Native American then logically it suggests that most if not all Americans can also claim to be members of groups that have historically suffered discrimination. We’re all minorities now?

We didn’t wipe out the Indians. There are Indians everywhere, running America and living in it. Basically, the Indians won!
