    It would appear there is legal precedent in Massachusetts for someone committing ‘racial fraud’.

    PHILIP MALONE & another vs. CIVIL SERVICE COMMISSION & another. :: Volume 38 :: Court of Appeals Volumes :: Massachusetts Case Law :: US Case Law :: US Law :: Justia

    Warren better carefully choose her next steps…this could get nasty for her...

    this is the woman you insist has a complete lack of economic knowledge
    such a statement actually indicates it is made without a grasp of reality
    I'm not going to white out here. By your logic Einstein(failed grade school math), Gates(college dropout), Jobs(college dropout) where not up to the "elite" standards of Warren, when in reality they all actually contributed something to society unlike Warren. I really couldn't give less of a **** what government or academic positions Warren held considering during my time very few academic achievements were about analysis and thinking and mainly about learning what to say, which holds true for government and academic positions in triplicate. Let's see, the father of modern physics, two giants in the computer industry v. one woman who gamed the system and speaks in the most simple non-analytical way possible who shows a great lack of understanding of how things work. HMMMMM, tough one.

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

    When I was an insurance agent, anything not about the policy was fraud. I couldn't guarantee results, speak ill of competitors, and every document was treated like an affadavit, this was as an individual trying to do honest business with facts. I don't see how getting ahead by listing a minority status with nothing more than "well grandma said" is any different compared to other falsification for gain from a legal standpoint.

    No, it was intended as a comment on the caliber of your post.

    And she has since lied in her explanations.

    Do you actually know what happened at Wounded Knee?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wounded_Knee_Massacre

    The Wounded Knee Massacre was committed on December 29, 1890,[1] near Wounded Knee Creek (Lakota: Čhaŋkpé Ópi Wakpála) on the Lakota Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota, USA. On the day before, a detachment of the U.S. 7th Cavalry Regiment commanded by Major Samuel M. Whitside intercepted Spotted Elk's band of Miniconjou Lakota and 38 Hunkpapa Lakota near Porcupine Butte and escorted them 5 miles westward (8 km) to Wounded Knee Creek where they made camp. The rest of the 7th Cavalry Regiment arrived led by Colonel James Forsyth and surrounded the encampment supported by four Hotchkiss guns.[2]

    On the morning of December 29, the troops went into the camp to disarm the Lakota. One version of events claims that during the process of disarming the Lakota, a deaf tribesman named Black Coyote was reluctant to give up his rifle, claiming he had paid a lot for it.[3] A scuffle over Black Coyote's rifle escalated and a shot was fired which resulted in the 7th Cavalry's opening fire indiscriminately from all sides, killing men, women, and children, as well as some of their own fellow troopers. Those few Lakota warriors who still had weapons began shooting back at the attacking troopers, who quickly suppressed the Lakota fire. The surviving Lakota fled, but U.S. cavalrymen pursued and killed many who were unarmed.
    By the time it was over, at least 150 men, women, and children of the Lakota Sioux had been killed and 51 wounded (4 men, 47 women and children, some of whom died later); some estimates placed the number of dead at 300. Twenty-five troopers also died, and 39 were wounded (6 of the wounded would later die).[4] It is believed that many were the victims of friendly fire, as the shooting took place at close range in chaotic conditions. At least twenty troopers were awarded the coveted Medal of Honor[5]
    I am shocked that anyone with any knowledge of history would use that phrase in this context. It reeks of the worst sort of racial insensitivity as well as is tinged with poisonous vitriol.
