Elizabeth Warren releases results of ancestry DNA test

By Blurtman following x   2017 Aug 29, 4:32pm 499 views   20 comments   watch   quote     share  

You would think she would release such results if they confirmed her Indian ancestry claims. It is quite inexpensive to order this test, and quite easy to receive the reasonably accurate information. I am a white guy by appearance, but I could make a claim of Asian ancestry or perhaps even Crimean Tartar or Uzbek as some of my DNA is from the Stans.

I imagine Warren is on the horns of a liberal dilemma. She has come face-to-face with the fact that we treat US indians by a tougher standard than Indians south of the border. In the US, one cannot merely self-identify as Indian, you have to supply proof of tribal registry. But any Indian from south of the border, or anyone at all for that matter, can merely self declare that they are "Hispanic".

Warren is an undocumented Indian, in essence.

What to do?

I'm astounded that you people keep worrying about this when half the individuals serving under Trump, including his own people, are resigning in disgust.

Incompetent narcissistic twitter boob who always lies, can't hire competent people, and has 2/3rds of the nation hating him or Elizabeth Warren might have at one time possibly claimed she had native American ancestors?

Idiocracy.

She's afraid her DNA will show more Trigger than Tonto.

Who the fuck cares? Why is this even a thread??

The orange clown provoked North Korea into launching a missile over Japan. His tech guys just resigned because they say he's a fucktard who doesn't even understand his own cyber security. All his advisory groups were terminated because no one was willing to sit on them. Most of his cabinet resigned or was fired the first year AND NONE OF THIS IS EVEN POLITICAL!!! It's just total incompetent stupidity.

But yeah.......Lizzy might have years ago said on an application she had native American genes. WE CARE!!!!!!!!!

Iwog, get back on your meds. Or at least cite diversity programs aimed at helping disadvantaged white Americans.

I saw a recent interview with Andrew Young who seemed particularly arrogant and, yes, racist. He said poor white Trump supporters are angry at seeing the success of many African Americans, and are the type of people who would think working in a coal mine was a good job. I spend a lot of time in Maryland and DC, and there are no shortage of diversity programs in the region that help everyone but poor white Americans. Same in Seattle.

You will see more Trump type candidates with backing from folks who are being left behind, and of no concern to the arrogant liberal elite, unless, of course, they weren't white.

BTW, can you please tell me what race Arpaio was racially profiling?

I don't believe you. Please link one single program. I think you're lying.

OK. Here you go, you coward. Here is a program administered by a constellation of organizations and institutions including National Science Foundation organizations. The NSF is located near DC in Alexandria, VA.

Alliance for Building Faculty Diversity in the Mathematical Sciences offers four NSF funded Postdoctoral Fellowships

Applicants must be US Citizens or Permanent Residents who have obtained a Ph.D. in mathematics within the last 5 years. Particular attention will be given to US under-represented minority (US URM) candidates.

Look, here is another. The programs are numerous. I haven't found any targeting poor whites.

Minority Diversity Initiative Programs

HGSC Engineering Postdoctoral Training Fellowship

Must be U.S. citizen and member of one of the URM groups. (URM = underrepresented minority.)

Oh noes, promoting diversity in university faculty. The horror.

See, the problem is white men, and so we will make an unlevel playing field to fuck them over. This White Spaniard woman certainly got a lot of career mileage out of her surname.

What barriers/challenges do URM face in Research-Extensive Universities?

Within the historically White, male, upper-middle class field of the professoriate, the interlocking effects of sexism, racism, and classism contribute to unwelcoming work environments for URM faculty.

Why should universities focus on recruiting and retaining URM faculty? Bacause white men are just common, not unique and uninteresting/

URM faculty bring intellectual and pedagogical diversity to the academy due to their unique and specific backgrounds that shape how they teach, what they study, and their ability to nurture and mentor the next generation of students. Since URM faculty serve as role models for URM undergraduate and graduate students and those interested in important questions of race, class and ethnicity, without URM faculty, it is more difficult to recruit, retain, and graduate URM students.

The real racism is anti-Asian. In CA State Schools, you're seeing the real meritocracy, going on half Asian, because they're not allowed to discriminate racially in any way. Unlike Ivy League Universities.

If you really want to blame Trump for the childish behavior of a dictator man-baby, you're not only wrong, you've gone full retard.
You NEVER go full retard!
