Elizabeth Warren is mocked as & # 39; the original Rachel Dolezal & # 39; by Charlamagne the God as he challenges her over controversial claim that she was Native American
- The presidential candidate appeared on The Breakfast Club radio program
- She was confronted with a series of questions about her once claimed native descent
- Host Charlamagne, the god, asked her why she relied on family stories
- He compared her to Dolezal, a white woman who claimed to be black
- Warren says she is not recognized by a tribe and should not have made the claim
Senator Elizabeth Warren appeared on The Breakfast Club's radio show and found that she was mistaken compared to Rachel Dolezal because of her earlier claims to have Native American descent.
The Democratic presidential candidate in Massachusetts was repeatedly grilled over her previous claims of indigenous descent – something she now says she shouldn't have done. She has repeatedly stated that she & # 39; not a person of color & # 39; And is not a member of a native tribe.
"It is what I believed, as I said, it is what I learned from my family," she said, when she was ignited by host Lenard Larry McKelvey, who goes to Charlamagne the god.
Senator Elizabeth Warren was compared to Rachel Dolezal during a performance on the radio program The Breakfast Club. Dolezal had an NAACP chapter and said she identified herself as black, although she had two white parents
& # 39; You sound a bit like the original Rachel Dolezal, & # 39; he told her at one point, referring to the former university teacher who served as the president of a chapter of the National Association for the Promotion of Colored People and said she was identified as black although she admitted she was born to white parents.
In the interview, Warren repeated her talks about her situation, even if she was pressed for immediate answers.

In this March 20, 2017, Nkechi Diallo, then known as Rachel Dolezal, posed at The Associated Press desk in Spokane, Wash. The former NAACP leader in Washington state, unraveled her life after being exposed as a white woman pretending to be black
& # 39; Why did you do that? & # 39; asked cohost Charlamagne tha god
& # 39; I got to know my family in the same way as most people know about their family, from my mother and father and my aunts and uncles, & # 39; she said. & # 39; And it is what I believe. & # 39;
& # 39; But I am not a person of color. I am not a tribe citizen, & she said to Charlamagne, turning to him during the interview. & # 39; And I shouldn't have done it. & # 39;
Asked if she would do it if she had the chance, Warren replied: & I can't go back. But I shouldn't do that. & # 39;
Then she called for the termination of the student loan and the financing of historically black colleges.
Charlemagne asked if she had earned benefits through the claim, which Warren denied, referring to a Boston Globe investigation.
& # 39; How long have you held that? & # 39; he asked her. & # 39; Why did you do that? & # 39;
& # 39; That's what I believe & # 39 ;, she replied.
& # 39; When did you find out that you were not? & # 39; he followed. Warren did not respond immediately, nor did she mention a genetic test she took that gave rise to commotion after showing that she had a small part of the native descent.
& # 39; I am not a color person. I am not a citizen of a tribe, & she said.
& # 39; You sound a bit like the original Rachel Dolezal, & # 39; he said to her. & # 39; Rachel Dolezal & # 39; s – white woman pretending to be black, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; This is what I learned from my family, & # 39; Warren repeated.
In February, Warren apologized for previous claims of indigenous origin, and called on the head of the Cherokee nation to apologize.
Her application in 1986 for the coup d'état in Texas, obtained by the Washington Post, showed that she was her race as & # 39; American Indian & # 39; had put down.
President Trump has repeatedly mocked Warren with & # 39; Pocahontas & # 39; even when she tried to distinguish herself from the vast democratic field by rolling out policy proposals.
