CHARLAMAGNE THA GOD: "Yeah, you are. How long did you hold onto that? Because there are some reports that said you were Native American on your Texas Bar license and that you said you were Native American on some documents when you were a professor at Harvard. Like, why did you do that?"
WARREN: "It's what I believed. You know, like I said, it's what I learned from my family."
CHARLAMAGNE THA GOD: "When did you find out you weren't?"
WARREN: "Well, you know, it's — I'm not a person of color. I'm not a citizen of a tribe. And tribal citizenship is an important distinction and not something I am."
CHARLAMAGNE THA GOD: "Was there any benefits to that?"
WARREN: "No. 'Boston Globe' did a full investigation. It never affected  — nothing about my family ever affected any job I ever got."
DJ ENVY: "Didn't get a discount in college?"
CHARLAMAGNE THA GOD: "You're kind of like the original Rachel Dolezal a little bit. Rachel Dolezal was a white woman pretending to be black."
WARREN: "This is what I learned from my family."
