Warren's Descent

Have you heard that U.S. Senate candidate and Harvard Prof. Elizabeth Warren once identified herself as a Native American? Howie Carr has...
We all know about “undocumented workers.” Now we have Elizabeth Warren, the undocumented Indian.
Funny thing, I think Ted Williams was one-fourth Mexican. He was white. Johnny Bench is one-eighth Indian. I always think of him as white. And then there’s Pocahantas Warren, the blue-eyed, one-32nd Cherokee (or so we’re told) who went from the Southwest Conference to the Ivy League over the course of a decade in which she was claiming to be a “minority professor.”
But once she’d parlayed the racial-spoils racket all the way to a tenured position at Harvard Law, she decided to ... pass, as they used to say in the old South. Once she’d reached the pinnacle of her trade, she ditched the fake-Indian routine. Maybe White Eyes Warren saw the smoke signals and figured out that someone was going to call her out on her ancestry. She was right.
Obviously, she's a member of the Fugawi tribe. Or maybe, the Hekawi... Who's her campaign manager? Agarn?

UPDATE: Heh. Pinochio-hontas. Heh.

Just think how hard it is to know who the heck your great, great, great Grandmother is?!!?!?!? I have no idea or the inclination to look it up. That would be my mothers, mothers, mothers, mothers, mothers, mother I think!!

You're on ther right track, as usual, Danny. It was itereseting to read in other news items online that she classified herself as a minority in order to connect with fellow American professionals of native American descent. But after about 10 years of doing so she dropped her self-declared classification because it didn't produce any meaningful opportunities to connnect with other professionals of native American descent. It's a shame she didn't write a biography and include a "composite" boyfriend who couldn't understand native American culture. If she had, maybe she'd be in line for the Presidency.
