Donald Trump has called Elizabeth Warren "Pocahontas." Is this racist?

  • Of Course It Is

    Donald Trump used racial profiling to insult Elizabeth Warren. He would only have called her Pocahontas to be inflammatory and offensive which will in turn have gained him further media attention. I feel like he picked the term as he knows that it is one of the few forms of racism that is acceptable to the masses, along with anti-semitism, so that people at home will laugh along with him instead of being openly disgusted if he had used racist language about a black or asian person, for example.

  • Yes if not wtf is it!!!

  • Elizabeth Warrens claims to be Native American...

    Elizabeth Warren claims to be Native American, and indicated she was a minority when she was working for Harvard University. The Association of American Law Schools even listed her as a "minority" and Harvard touted her as "Native American" on their website. But that claim is now considered disingenuous, as genealogist trace her likely Native American ancestry to the 19th century, which would make her about 1/32 Native American if true. In her 2012 Senate run, her opponent Scott Brown used her likely bogus "minority" claim against her, and suggested she take a DNA test to show voters her genetic background. Elizabeth Warren brought this upon herself.

  • She isn't NA

    She wasn't NA, she lied, she manipulated, she played up her membership in groups she had no ties to, she used the minority card Obama used and Clinton is using. Not to mention Pocahontas was a good NA woman who we admire by her being the only non-American, and the only woman, to be on the face of a coin.

  • How can it?

    To the best of my knowledge, Pocahontas was a very respected Native American, so would not imply a negative image of her heritage.
    Look, it has been well documented that she (Elizabeth Warren) has made claim to being part Native American to gain public support despite not being able to show any real proof of actually being part Native American. Trump is just using this past ploy of hers to discredit her, not because of her claimed heritage but to question her own honesty.

  • I don't believe this is racist.

    It is possible that he is making fun of Warren for one reason or another but I do not believe he has any animosity toward Warren. He is after all a candidate and will be under scrutiny of the public on a national scale. However, I suppose it would probably depend on the context o what he said.

  • No, these comments are not racist.

    When Elizabeth Warren ran for the Senate, she played up her Native American roots by claiming to be a member of the Cherokee Nation, Warren, however, is not really a member of any Native American tribe. Donald Trump probably should not call her names like Pocahontas. However, Trump is not being racist by poking fun at her dishonesty.
