    The fund raising in that race is an interesting story.

    Many Americans claim to have Cherokee ancestors and many Americans do have them. But really, who gives a ****? Why does she have to prove it? Does this have some baring on Politics and running for office? I mean, what does NOT proving it, prove?

    Sheesh, it's not like she and/or her staff is being investigated for embezzlement of veterans funds like, say.....Scott Walker's is. Ya know?
    Silly poor people
    Tax cuts are for the rich!

    Actual Native Americans care.

    But opportunities for exploitation abound. National Public Radio reported that last year, before the Warren imbroglio, the Coalition of Bar Associations of Color passed a resolution condemning "fraudulent self-identification as Native American on applications for higher education." The practice, it said, had grown "pervasive." According to the coalition, between 1990 and 2000, about 2,500 Native American students graduated from accredited U.S. law schools. During that same period, the U.S. Census reported an increase of just 228 Native American lawyers nationwide. The disparity suggests that some graduates may have self-reported to the Census as one race, and to their law schools as another.

    Elizabeth Warren
    yeah... that bold part... didn't happen here.


    The Boston Globe reported that Warren claimed no minority status in applying to college or law school. Her application to Rutgers University Law School, which Warren attended, included the question: "Are you interested in applying for admission under the Program for Minority Group Students?" Warren answered, "No."
    linkypoo...


    If only the GOP were more interested in policy here. I wonder why they aren't? This non-issue continues to be a non-issue.

    She didn't use her "color" to get into school. It appears she did use it afterwards though to move up the ladder into more prestigious schools as a professor.

    The undated document, obtained by the Globe through a public records request, supports Warren’s statement that she did not present herself as a Native American when hired for that job. But it leaves open the question of why she later listed herself as a minority in a legal directory often consulted by hiring deans.

    Glad to see that we both agree that your quote in your previous post of "the Coalition of Bar Associations of Color" talking about how pervasive of a problem using it to get into school had been is irrelevant garbage having nothing to do with Elizabeth Warren.

    As far as your assumptions as to why she marked her heritage later in the job market... well, they are assumptions and of course the worst kind of assumptions you can come up with.

    How is this post:

    but not enough to satisfy the reich wing that Elizabeth Warren misrepresented nothing
    Different from this one:

    while the tribal leaders are found to have no more Cherokee blood than does Elizabeth Warren
    My reply was that Warren has failed to PROVE the Cherokee heritage. Many have argued that there is some threshold that qualify 'Indian heritage' in various venues. This is not my arguement if one has the blood unquestionably they have it. I detest 'posers' especially those who use it for preferential treatment.

    Did you miss this post?

    The Reverend Eugene F Rivers is a Republican - just saying

    the only other black minister quoted, identifies himself as an "independent".

    We may have here an attempt by the "librul media" to use only two men as providing support for what a much larger group is thinking.
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
