Elizabeth Warren has tried her very best to escape her white guilt throughout her academic and political career.

How did she do this, you might ask? Two words: Cultural appropriation! 

Warren repeatedly claimed she was Native American and was so bold she took a DNA test to prove it. Unfortunately, the results didn’t come back in her favor.

The Massachusetts senator was about 1/1024th indigenous American.

In layman's terms, these findings mean a miniscule portion of her ancestry could have been South or North American.

Warren found out the hard way that simply claiming to be another race is not the cure for white guilt.
