    My position is that it wasn't a lie at all because she thought it was true. I don't know about you, but personally I haven't fact checked everything my parents told me about my family history.



    Apparently the proof doesn't exist, so don't feel bad.
    She thought she was 1/32 Cherokee, so she thought that made her a law school faculty minority????? RIGHT!!!!!



    See, politically, the problem is that the whole kerfuffle just makes her look ridiculous.

    Again, post the link where SHE claimed she was a minority.

    Did I mention that the CHIEF OF THE CHEROKEE NATION is 1/32 Cherokee?

    that bitch
    how dare she believe what her family told her growing up
    that she had a Cherokee heritage

    and how dare she believe that Indian heritage was was 1/16 and not actually 1/32
    and so what that such belief in her Cherokee heritage never worked to her personal benefit
    this is an important campaign issue, damn it
    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

    Let me repeat...... her political problem is that this whole thing makes her look like a pander bear, and a ridiculous one at that. All the worse if it turns out she actually got hired or promoted on the basis of this nonsense, but that's not crucial. It's the atmospherics. I don't see how anybody can deny that.

    OH and btw, there you go again. The CHIEF OF THE CHEROKEE NATION is not running for the Senate...your constant use of diversion is getting tenuous.

    I already covered that. The chief of the Cherokee nation is documented through the proper channels and reccognized by the nation itself, Warren is not, but then again the woman's entire body of work is bull**** so what's a little affirmative action deception in the big picture.

    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Yes, that's the one. Note that the correction says that the article was incorrect in identifying the document; not that the document itself didn't exist. In any case, as I've said several times now, it's irrelevant whether Warren actually had Cherokee blood. The issue is whether she THOUGHT she did. The fact that her family newsletter was talking about the family's (purported) Cherokee heritage adds credibility to Warren't contention that the family thought it was true and passed it down through the generations.
