    Yes, the latter doesn't result in being counted by your employer's against their minority count.
    Which is what happened with Warren.

    Seems to be revisionist of the past.
    She claimed minority status. .. that is the problem.
    She didn't claim a vague relation to NA 10 generations ago.

    My heritage was beaten out of my grand-parents by the public school system.
    Thank you gov.

    Again, the fact that she actually went through with the DNA test proves that her statements about her heritage were not made fraudulently. She genuinely believed that she had NA heritage, and when called on her statements, she provided DNA evidence proving that she does have NA heritage.
    The issue is that it is actually false. Not if she believed it or not.

    I completely believe that she was told she had High cheek bones like NA, therefore she believed she was NA.
    That just makes her stupid, not a deceiver.
    But, now that it is clear she was mistaken, and that she was in fact wrong to claim minority status..
    She should apologize and move on. Her continuing the farce is what would make her claims fraudulent.
    To serve man.
