MSNBC analyst finds Cherokee Nation's statement disavowing Elizabeth Warren 'problematic'

As Twitchy reported, not long after Sen. Elizabeth Warren spiked the ball when a DNA test showed she could have as little as 1/1024th Native American heritage — less than the average white American — the Cherokee Nation put out a statement saying that “using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong.”

We wondered which media outlet would be first to try to discredit the Cherokee Nation, and we think that honor goes to a Washington Post reporter who did some digging and found that back in 2012, the head of the Cherokee Nation “defended Warren and stressed that she never claimed to be a card-carrying member” — guess he never got his copy of the “Pow Wow Chow” cookbook. And this was before the DNA test fiasco.

The media is still circling the wagons around Warren, and now MSNBC analyst Zerlina Maxwell has called the Cherokee Nation’s statement ridiculous and problematic.

What’s so problematic about the statement? Maxwell explained to host Craig Melvin:

I think that while the rollout of the DNA test and the decision to do a DNA test to be able to, quote, “prove” that she is part Cherokee, may not have been the best method. I also think that the Cherokee Nation’s response was problematic because it actually ignores the fact that DNA testing historically has been used to exclude black natives from tribal affiliation. And so, that history has been completely lost in this entire conversation, and that’s potentially very unfortunate.

So whose DNA testing, exactly, has been used to exclude black natives from tribal affiliation? Maxwell’s obviously insinuating the tests are racist, and since there’s no one else to finger, she might as well suggest that the Cherokee Nation’s statement was “problematic,” i.e., racist.

Yeah, and Maxwell’s not even the first we’ve heard of.

Can we just ask … why is anyone in America even still suggesting that Warren is in any way, shape, or form Native American?

Would it be too much for the media to lay off the Cherokee Nation and maybe fact-check this list of Warren’s lies about her heritage instead?
