    As to the question why would anyone care outside of mass? She is a law maker of the united states. Thats effects all americans and i for one would rather not have someone dishonest in that position

    I tend to check the "hispanic" box if I think it will make any difference. Truth is all 8 of my great grandparents came from Prussia, but I dare those racist bastards to question it.

    It doesn't really matter whether it's true or not as long as she believes it's true. Which means she wasn't trying to deceive anyone.

    Of course they don't, she's one of them. It only matters if a republican lies.

After all, I could say that Scott Brown made the accusation against Warren because he was under the influence of alien zombies, but since there is zero evidence that actually happened then that question wouldn't belong here.

    You do ok until you get on stupid things like zombies. I just cant take a person seriously if that is part of their argument.

    Then you know how I feel about stupid, unsubstantiated claims about lying about being Native American and claiming she profited from it.

    Re: Is Elizabeth Warren part Native American?

    White folks talking about that one relative that was Cherokee or whatever from two hundred years ago always makes me laugh.

    Anyway, I couldn't care less. I don't see why it's important.

    But, if she's lying, well......that would be problematic.

    Those that like her political stand will never care that she "might have been mistaken" about being a special protected minority. These are the same folks that call pulling a 180 on a given policy position either a flip-flop or an evolved position - depending entirely upon whether they like the person's political slant. The bottom line is that while republicants constantly lie and/or flip-flop, demorats simply occasionally misspeak and/or evolve to a different policy position.

    Re: Is Elizabeth Warren part Native American?

    The Wiki on this is informational

    Elizabeth Warren Native American / Cherokee Controversy « Elizabeth Warren Wiki


    Technically, the question is whether any Cherokee tribe lists her as a member. If not, she's not. If so, she is. But I suppose that depends upon whether you look at it through white folks eyes or Cherokee eyes, huh?

    Harm? Harvard listed her as their first Native American woman. What a slam against Native Americans. About as accurate as to claim that FRD was the United States first African-American president.

    It appears her story has perpetually changed from claiming she heard she had a great grandmother who was Cherokee, to her knowing she much be by her "high cheek bones," to that she said this to connect to Native Americans. In liberal settings, she has claimed and written that she is. In conservative settings, such as the University of Texas, she checked that she's white.

    The relevancy is about personal integrity. On this topic she has continually changed her story (continually changing what is true) to always serve her own personal benefit. However, it seems most people see all politicians as liars so catching a politician lying doesn't matter much anymore.
