During a live Instagram stream in her home kitchen on New Years Eve, Massachusetts Senator and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren was seen “taking a break” and drinking beer while speaking to her supporters:
“Um, I’m glad for everybody who’s joining this video. It’s great to hear from you.
“Hold on a sec, I’m going to get me a beer.”
After she got her beer, Warren introduced her husband and then announced she was going to run for president in 2020, according to CBS News.
Interestingly enough, sitting on top of the senator’s kitchen cabinet appeared to be a black-colored doll:
Some believe the doll, or small statue, may resemble a racist “Sambo” type caricature.
What are your thoughts? Is it really a “blackface” doll or just a harmless decoration piece?
Let us know by leaving a comment.
UPDATE: It appears there has been quite a bit of outrage on Twitter over the discovery:

Can't believe there hasn't been a major media investigation about the mammy or sambo figurine on the top of Elizabeth Warren's kitchen cabinet.

Will the Black Community give @SenWarren a pass for having a Black Sambo statue in her kitchen? Is this acceptable “art work” for a Fauxcahontas? Elizabeth – you got some ‘splaining to do. Or some coverup.

I liked the Gollywog/Sambo statuette she had on the shelf above her.

Why not donate to a veterans charity, or a charity benefitting AMERICANS? Your true colors show everytime.
Also nice Sambo figurine in your instagram broadcast. (Top left ontop of your cabinet.) It’s gonna be gold when it gets out you collect racist art. 2020 here we come.

@RAZ0RFIST I was bored the other day and then I heard @SenWarren was doing a kitchen thing on Instagram. Then someone sent me this and lo and behold. Black Sambo on the top of her cabinet. So not only is she not Native American, but a racist as well. Elizabeth Warren 2020 fail. pic.twitter.com/IeEFZoNx2c
