Who's an American Indian? Warren case stirs query

May 26, 2012 Full story: Peninsula Clarion 11

What, exactly, makes someone American Indian? Even Indians themselves don't agree as they debate the case of Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren, whose disputed claim of Native American identity is shining a rare spotlight on the malleable nature of Indian heritage and the long history of murky claims to such ancestry.

Warren used her lie about being Native American to obtain preferential status at college.She needs to pay the school back and have her degrees rescinded. It was obtained by fraud.

The USA needs to get rid of race, ethnicity on forms, applications. Affirmative Action has now become a joke.

This Warren example is certainly a case of someone taking advantage of a situation.

Often wonder if Obama sealed his school records for this reason.

It's time for Obama to be transparent with his school records.

Is race a choice? President Obama had a white and black parent. He CHOSE to list himself as black.

It's a pick and choose world. If you decide you're a minority you get better options in this world.

If we all dig back far enough, we'll discover other races, ethnicites in our background.

I live in MA where granny warren is currently running for Ted Kennedy's old seat ( thank god he's dead ) and I can tell you this is one of the most liberal places on earth a place I will vacate of Warren wins. I can remeber not so long ago granny warren claiming that she said she was an Indian because she wanted to be with her own kind. Well Granny defiently found a bunch twisted lying putted moon bats to be with. Go Brown.

Why is she having to defend HER heritage? I'd like her to open up the nude spread of Scott Brown and say, "We need to be discussing somebody's else's "Moral Majority" heritage!

she is having to defend it because it is so freakin dubious, it stinks. EVERYONE in this country has 1/32 of some kind of minority in them. it ain't much. to claim you are "diverse" because of it shows a real tendency to scam the system. to claim minority status under 8-A minority businesses, you must be 1/8th at least. the blue eyed blonde was willing to play along as long as it was helping her, just like the man from kenya was willing to let that one slide for 17 years. stinks.
