    If Warren had not checked the box, the right would have excoriated her for denying her heritage.
    "The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts." (Bertrand Russell, 1872 - 1970)

    What heritage?
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    If she hadn't checked the box.....there would be no discussion about her heritage at all. She did this as its seems to be important to liberals, its all blowing up in her face.

    actually, no
    those of us with mixed heritage have to make a choice
    1/4 Cherokee heritage
    do i identify myself as Native American or white
    if i check 'white' then there is the potential someone would argue i did not properly classify myself
    if i check 'Native American' then there is the possibility - such as is evident in this thread - that i am using my Cherokee heritage to gain personal advantage
    it's a catch 22 of minor proportion
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed

    I know that applying for admission to college that almost every school alows you to check to check "other". And a decent percentage of schools allow you to check BOTH white and native american, which I've done before, since I'm also both. I've never seen an application that didn't at least have the "other" and they often have a little place to explain why you picked that if you want.

    one would think those options would be pervasive
    unfortunately, they are not
    as a contractor for a (million+ population) municipal government, i had to make such designation within the past 10 days: choose one or the other. not both. no 'other' with an opportunity to be specific
    i was limited to one choice or the other

    If you actually read what he wrote he correctly suggested Obama came from Harvard Law-not that he taught there

    That is moronic a claim. calling a bitch a bitch is no more a "war on women" than you engaging in a war on the Church of Latter Day Saints due to your constant petulant carping about Mitt

    LOL Pathetic. most of us on the right don't consider someone who might be one thirty second something to be part of that group.
