Far-left social justice warriors forge their entire identity based off of sex, gender, race, and ability. So, when a Huffington Post writer found out she was actually a third white instead of Native American, her world came crumbling down around her.
Christine Michel Carter had been told by her family that she was descended from black and Native American ancestry. However, when she got her DNA test, it revealed she was actually two-thirds black and one-third white. It sent her reeling and into a feeling of “shame.”
“Of all the emotions which materialized from the results, the two strongest were disorient and shame,” Carter wrote in her Huffington Post article on Sunday. “I thought the results would simply confirm what I was told by my family; instead they discredited their allegations.”
Carter discovered through a conversation with her uncle that her ancestors were part of the Lumbee tribe, which were comprised of American Indians, indentured whites, and former black slaves. Race mixing among the groups was fairly common. Yet, she was not as open-minded to the idea of being multiracial as her ancestors were.
“Along with being a millennial and being a woman, being Black enlivens me. I’m personally and professionally compelled to clarify misconceptions and elevate all three of my squads,” Carter wrote. “As inappropriate (but honest) as it sounds, I’d discovered I had the so-called “superior” race running through my veins, and never before had I felt so inferior.”
“While I’m no Rachel Dolezal, I must accept the fact I do have White ancestors. It’s nothing to be ashamed of, but quite honestly, the road to acceptance will not be an easy one for me to travel,” she continued.
Carter’s racist beliefs, which she’s internalized into self-loathing peppered throughout the article, is an insult to her family history. The Lumbee Tribe’s history stems from one of the earliest groups in America to welcome interracial relationships, tolerance, and acceptance, a heritage most people would find pride in except of course if you’re a social justice warrior.
