what_now: Trey Le Parc: Her misrepresention and obfuscation were a direct lift from the GOP playbook, so it's OK. That's what happened.

You haven't a clue what you're talking about, do you.


You're confused by the concept of nuance.  Perhaps one of your intelligent friends can explain it to you.

what_now: Bloody William: somedude210: proof that she lies?

I mean explain what happened. Please, walk me through this so I can better understand your outrage. This entire thing seems to reek of assumptions and right-wing "conventional wisdom" in the form of tired jokes, but I haven't actually figured out what exactly was done to warrant this.

Ok, so Senator Warren grew up in Oklahoma and was told she had some Native ancestors. Family legend apparently has it that her parents marriage was frowned upon because her mom had some Native blood or something.

Years later, Harvard used her as an example of the diversity of their faculty, because she is 1/32 native.

This drove the right wing farking INSANE when they found out. Apparently, it means that even though she grew up lower middle class and got married as a teenager and STILL managed to attend college, law school, and become a distinguished faculty member at Harvard University and a world famous economist, all of that was from Affirmative Action, because a dirty Indian can't possibly do that on her own.

Also, she doesn't have PROOF of her ancestry, so she MUST be lying. The fact that very very few people can proof their ancestry is irrelevant to these people.

It made Scott Brown look like a racist idiot, but people still trot it out.


As much as I like Warren, it was really retarded for Harvard to call her Native American when she was 1/32 Native... I am about 1/32 Irish, yet I don't call myself Irish. Hell, I am 1/8 French and don't even consider myself that.

you should let the Cherokee Nation know that then... seeing as their current chief is only 1/32nd Cherokee.

i suppose you know better than they do as to what is appropriate. i'm sure they'll appreciate your input.

I doubt it. Not even the Cherokee like the French.
