Sen. Elizabeth Warren publicly admitted she’s “not a person of color” during a recent interview this week; saying she “can’t go back” on publicly releasing her DNA results.
“The question I have never understood is: Why? Why did you in 1986 fill out on your law license or something? Why did you check those boxes, because obviously that’s a very small part of your lineage? 1/32nd or something, so why did you do it?” asked former Obama advisor David Axelrod.
“I shouldn’t have done it. I’m not a person of color. I am not a citizen of a tribe, but what I try to do is to be a good friend to Native Americans and that’s why for example, I have a housing bill that fully funds housing on tribal reservations,” Warren said. “I can’t go back.”
