    and when you fill out those personal information forms, the ones that ask for your ethnicity, i am certain that when you check 'white' you are able to prove with 100% accuracy that you are 100% white. [/s] but then, no one ever asks for such proof. the proof you now deem so essential

    But look at what you wrote ! Contrast this with the uncorroborated stories about Mitt Romney in high school supposedly cutting some kids hair !!

    Warren as an adult, just 15-20 years ago, misrepresenting herself. Corroborated.

    Romney in high school. 45 years ago. Not corroberated. In fact, denied by the "victim's" family.

    Mitt Romney in High school being a bully. Corroborated.

    Elizabeth Warren's Cherokee heritage. Corroborated in your own OP of this thread when you, yourself linked to this story:




    Here's the difference between you and I...

    Elizabeth Warren's Cherokee heritage

    yeah, maybe you should get out more is correct

    The family of the student allegedly attacked by Romney and friends was not "denied by the "victim's" family" What they have said is that their brother never told them the story - a little bit different than saying it didn't happen.

    Others, who were students with Romney have corroborated the tale
    Friedemann claimed that one day Romney and a group of boys sought out Lauber, tackled him and held him to the ground while Romney clipped the locks he found offensive. Three other former Cranbrook students corroborated the story on the record, and a fourth spoke to the Post anonymously.

    Laugh at whomever you please. Enjoy! Won't change the fact that your post was an attempt to deflect from the topic, which is Warren. You apparently aren't very interested in facts, just partisan pot-stirring. Not very well played.

    But this thread, and story, ain't about you and me

    As for how the national parties play their politics, can't have it both ways.

    Yeah, because there are so many advantages in checking "white". Everyone knows they get preference over people of color like the squaw Dizzy Lizzie Warren.

    There is no indication that she benefited from being 1/32 Cherokee.. Those stories are family lore.

    In our family we finally discovered the source of the folklore about an indian great, great great grandmother.. and sure enough we are 1/32 American Indian.. Its not a big deal... there were many mixed race couples farming in the Cherokee Nation before the Great Removal.

    In my opinion the reason why this is making a splash is because we only have Warren's word that she didnt use minority status to get ahead. Here is the rub because her integrity on the ancestry issue calls into question her honesty on this issue as well. It looks like she gamed the system to get ahead, so thats what people believe.

    It strikes right at her core as a crusader because crusaders against power have to look incorruptible, Warren looks quite corruptible now.

    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.
    There's no doubt that many Native American's are upset with Warren's claims that she cannot prove. And nobody would have to assume anything about the matter if Warren hadn't been caught in a lie about not having told Harvard or the University of Penn about her minority status.
