Radio Host Calls Warren the ‘Original Rachel Dolezal’
During an appearance on iHeartRadio’s The Breakfast Club Friday, a host challenged Sen. Elizabeth Warren about her controversial claims of Native American ancestry.
“You’re kind of like the original Rachel Dolezal a little bit,” co-host Charlamagne tha God told her. “Rachel Dolezal was a white woman pretending to be black.” Warren responded that it was something she had grown up being told by her family.
“I grew up in Oklahoma. 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,” the presidential candidate stated.
