Ok /pol/ why do alot of racist white trash Americans claim native ancestry? They hate blacks, asians and Mexicans (which are Natives) but claim a Cherokee grandma. Wtf is up with that? I'm not a liberal or tumblr bitch just kinda curious. I'm 15 percent Native New Mexican, and I dont go around teling people about it. I even hear girls who look 100 percent German at my University who talk about being native.
Idk about other people but I actually have a shit-ton of Cherokee in my family. And I'm not talking one person...there's obvious half-breeds all over my family tree on both sides. Of my 8 great-grandparents, at least 5 are half-breeds or quadroons (of cherokee).
Yet to most people I look "white." You can see the admixture if you look closely enough though. A lot of American whites simply look kinda "different" from pure Europeans.
That is why people claim that. Because it's actually real.
Because liberalism has made it uncool to be white. Being white in a liberal university is almost a crime these days. Besides, natives are petty much worthless alcoholics that do nothing but bitch about muh past.
I don't know. It isn't something to be proud of IMO. Maybe because whites are taught that they don't have a culture. And when they realize they do, and attempt to express it, they're labeled racist
