How is a person 1/16384 of anything?
well perspective is everything i guess, i definitely would not call her a ”mixed person” at all for example, since im brazillian and have lived with ALOT of really mixed people, of all kinds, birracial, triracial,multiracial, and SO mixed you can even define. This lady is just like any other white american woman who just happens to have some non-white ancestry far down the line on her background, that does not influence at all either her appearience, or how she is socially percieved.
Maybe EltonLee was just talking about the mixture of ethnicities/various nationalities of her makeup, not bringing racial groups into the equation.
Yeah maybe that’s what he meant, there’s different kinds of white people too after all.

worth to be added.
is there any reason to not include this detailed genealogy of her on this profile, may I ask? Not even login required.
She pass easily in the U.K
How can she be Montaukett and not be from NY? Impossible.
So you really think all her ancestors lived in the same state since the 1600’s?
She’s not part Native American. 99.99% of White people who say they are, aren’t.
Pookerella is a troll everyone should ignore her for insulting Kasey Musgraves pride and heritage!
its the truth. most people who say they are native american usually arent and have no proof. They only take the word of one of their grandparents.
exactly. Being Native american is a myth some Caucasian and ALL african americans have in their family. In reality only a small percentage of Americans have native ancestry.
Why would you say “exactly”to a point you made yourself? and the average African American is 2% Native American and the average Caucasian American is more Native American than the Massachusetts Senator.
