If Elizabeth Warren wanted to meet people like her, she’d have checked the “Marxist” box instead of “Native American.” In any case, Warren wants us to believe that she only said she was a minority (in spite of claiming to be only 1/32 Cherokee) to meet others who shared her tribal roots:
Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren, fending off questions about whether she used her Native American heritage to advance her career, said today she enrolled herself as a minority in law school directories for nearly a decade because she hoped to meet other people with tribal roots.
“I listed myself in the directory in the hopes that it might mean that I would be invited to a luncheon, a group something that might happen with people who are like I am. Nothing like that ever happened, that was clearly not the use for it and so I stopped checking it off,” said Warren.
The Harvard Law professor argued she didn’t use her minority status to get her teaching jobs, and slammed her Republican rival U.S. Sen.Scott Brown for suggesting otherwise.
She apparently needed the camaraderie of others like her because unless you’ve ever been three percent minority you just can’t relate to what it’s like!
Kind of reminds me of the time I checked off my ancestry as “1/64th Samoan” in the college registry because I wanted to meet Polynesian chicks (I justified it by the fact that my great-great grandfather once briefly thought about visiting Manu’a).
Warren can prove she’s got Native American blood in her. How? Her Grandpa’s got high cheekbones! No, seriously:
