Mass. Senator Elizabeth Warren was on The Breakfast Club this morning and hosts DJ Envy, Angela Yee & Charlamagne Tha God wouldn’t let Warren’s claim of Native American heritage go.
As Warren was talking about reparations for slavery and free college, the show’s host kept pivoting back to questions about if Warren used her heritage claim to get ahead and why she thought she was Native American.
“I grew up in Oklahoma,” she said. “I learned about my family the same way most people learn about their family, from my mama and my daddy and my aunts and my uncles, and it is what I believed. But I am not a person of color. I am not a citizen of a tribe. and I shouldn’t have done it.”
“You’re kind of like the original Rachel Dolezal a little bit,” Charlamagne tha God punched back. “Rachel Dolezal was a white woman pretending to be black.”
Watch the exchange below.
“You’re kind of like the original Rachel Dolezal… she was white pretending to be black.”
