Can Lindsey Graham Beat Warren In The Cherokee DNA Challenge?

Benny Johnson

South Carolina senator Lindsey Graham thinks he can beat Elizabeth Warren in the DNA challenge to prove that he, a white man, has more Native American ancestry than the Massachusetts Democrat.

The bar is pretty low.

“I’ve been told that my grandmother was part Cherokee Indian. It may all be just talk, but you’re gonna find out in a couple of weeks because I’m gonna take this test,” Graham said on Fox and Friends in a Tuesday interview.

If Graham’s grandmother is part Cherokee, that creates a very high probability that he has more Native American ancestry than Elizabeth Warren, who possibly has a very small fraction of Native American blood.

BLP reported: In order clear up this confusion, Warren released the results of a DNA test which show that that she is, at most 1/32nd Native American, and at least 1/1024th Native American, according to the Boston GlobeAccording to the article, somewhere between six and 10 generations ago, Warren has a Native American ancestor.

We did the math and found that in any scenario, Warren is still not Native American enough to be considered American Indian by any tribe today.

According to The Globe, if Warren’s “great-great-great grandmother was Native American, that puts her at 1/32nd American Indian.” One must be at least 1/16 Native American to be considered American Indian by tribes in the United States today, meaning that she is only meets 50% of the requirement to be considered Native American…

For fun, we looked into Warren’s worst-case scenario – what if she is only 1/1024th Native American? In other words, what if Warren had a great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great who was Native American?

Well, 1 divided by 1024 is .00097656, or .09%. That number divided by the 1/16th requirement (.0625 for my readers who are adept at mathematics) comes out to .015625, or only 1.5% of the requirement to be considered Native American today.

Warren is no more related to Native Americans as any of us are related to Adam and Eve. Democrats are clowning themselves trying to pretend that they belong to minority groups (see: Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke), thus giving them clout within their party, which hates white people…

But it turns out that there was a very big problem with the test that Warren took.

“To make up for the dearth of Native American DNA, Bustamente used samples from Mexico, Peru and Colombia to stand in for Native American,” according to the Boston Globe report.

Looks like our money is on Graham!
