Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren on Saturday defended her decision to take a DNA test to prove Native American ancestry, though she insisted that ‘I am not a person of color.’
During an exchange with voters in Iowa, she was asked about the DNA test.
Warren said that she initially claimed Native American ancestry because she grew up in Oklahoma, where many people trace their roots to indigenous cultures.
‘My decision was to put it all out there,’ Warren said.
She never has apologized for throwing her supposedly racist grandparents under the bus.
