    Who woulda thought the Cherokees would return with a blue-eyed blond:

    They took the whole Cherokee nation
    And put us on this reservation
    They took away our ways of life
    The tomahawk and the bow and knife

    They took away our native tongue
    And taught their English to our young
    And all the beads we made by hand
    Are nowadays made in Japan

    Cherokee people
    Cherokee tribe
    So proud to live
    So proud to die

    It's all in the cheekbones. lol

    Far left darling Elizabeth Warren, who lied about being Native American for years, told reporters yesterday that her grandfather had “high cheekbones… like all indians do.”
    Now doesn’t that sound a bit racist, Elizabeth?

While you cling to a family story and the inaccurate report that ONE document was found that supports your claim, we real Cherokees understand that those things mean nothing. You see, we Cherokees have lots and lots and lots of documentation supporting our claims of our ancestry. Our Cherokee ancestors are found on every roll of the Cherokee Nation (30+ rolls!) dating back to before the removal and in all sorts of other documentation, including but not limited to claims against the US government for lost property; the Moravian missionary records; ration lists before and after the forced removal, etc...yet your ancestors are found in NONE of those records
    But, your ancestors are found in plenty of historical records, and every time, they are found living as white people among other white people. Never are your ancestors ever found living among the Cherokees. Never, never, never, never.......yet you claim they were Cherokee.




    Hmmm........and they say you are an elite lawyer! Really?




    Are we supposed to believe an elite lawyer knows nothing about the burden of proof? According to Lawyers.com, the burden of proof is the responsibility of producing sufficient evidence in support of a fact or issue and favorably persuading the trier of fact. Well, Ms. Warren, you should know that you are not doing a very good job of supporting your claim or persuading anyone to believe what you say. This is starting to make us question your ability as a legal mind! And that makes us question whether you really got your job at Harvard on your own merits or whether you climbed on the backs of the Cherokee people in order to further your career.

    Not that it's a good thing the white man put them in the position...but the Cherokee were a civilized tribe...they gave up the fight for their land. They should have fought to their death for it, useless as it would have been.....what belonged to them, belonged to them.

    No, no, no! It's not the cheekbones!

    She's "...still a Redwoman* deep inside".

    If they had fought to their death, we wouldn't have Elizabeth Warren...or not.

    When one states she is unaware her employer has publicized the fact that she is a minority and after being caught in a lie, 'fesses up and says well.... yeah I did tell them that. And that profession participates fully in affirmative action and she climbs the ladder from one prestigious locale to the next after making such a claim. And she is running for an elective office that will give her the power to shape such policies in the future I think the voters are entitled to proof that she didn't play the system.

    No. Germans have high cheekbones too...is that racist? It's true Cherokee have high cheekbones. Sioux Indians have distinct facial features as well (beautiful bone structure)and many Indians have no facial/body hair..is that racist?

    This is just GOP opposition research digging decades into the past to try and find anything. And I mean ANYTHING they can attack her with. This is weaksauce to the max. Which is why the polls aren't moving on this.
    So could somebody please explain to me why this is then important?
