Except both of those things are not true. Warren is not a Native American and Trump isn't a traitor.

If O.C. Sarah Smith were fully Native American, that would make Warren up to 1/32nd native. But the generational range based on the ancestor that the report identified suggests she’s between 1/64th and 1/1,024th Native American.




Using your logic the minuscule Amount of Native American ancestry everybody has means we are all Native American.

With respect to European Americans, the percentages are much more different than African Americans or Latinos, with European American genomes being 98.6 percent European, 0.19 percent African and 0.18 percent Native American.

Her Indian blood is roughly the same as the population as a whole.

other than that I can't think of anything else.

Private prisons should be banned.
There's no fundamental reason privately owned and operated prisons should operate any differently than publicly operated ones. Prisons are all publicly funded anyway.

The issue seems to be overbooking. That's a state issue.
