    Re: Is Elizabeth Warren part Native American?

    The word "Indian" continued to be used to instill that Native Americans were outsiders and foreign, for which white people were the true Americans. It is a slur, but one generally accepted.

    It is curious how "Indian" remains acceptable to most, while some howl that "redskin" is bigotry - as the people furious about "redskin" still call African-Americans "black" and it entirely ok to refer to "white people." But "red people" and "yellow people" is bigotry.

    You try to figure out the PC rules of the moment.

    People who are brainwashed by political correctness are the only ones who get hung up on terminology.

    Indigenous people is the most correct and Indian the most inaccurate.

    The power of Hollywood. Do you think there was ever a real occasion where Indians rode in circles around a ring of wagons as the settlers picked them off like a shooting gallery?

    No idea. Probably not, though.

    Your track here is quite... entertaining. You're being willfully obtuse to portray political correctness as a virtue.

    Carry on.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Not at all, it's just that some members may be interested in presenting themselves as though they learned a viable trade, got a secondary education...read a book...and I'm just offering my help. I'm certainly not here to judge.

    Scott Brown is a good guy. However, for him to try and make a big stink out of this is pretty ridiculous. Specially when the GOP base is made up of evangelicals who don't look kindly upon nudies on Cosmopolitan. He really made himself look like a fool by focusing on this "issue". The majority of Americans don't care about the circumstances around Elizabeth Warren's employment 20 years ago anymore than they care about who won the Super Bowl in 2010. It's simply not relevant.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    I don't care what she is or thinks she is.

    My criticisms aren't based on her self identifying as part Native american for financial gains.

    She a hack leftist shill and a rallying point for people that are gullible enough to believe her rhetoric.

    Apparently, the Democrats still believe the majority of the American voters are still idiots or they wouldn't be pushing her as a candidate.
