So Scott Brown can tell Elizabeth Warren is not of any Cherokee lineage just by looking at her?
What does the Cherokee Chief have to say about that?
Gosh I have no idea. This guy is too white to ask. Isn't he?

Exactly. I am so offended by Brown and his staff and outraged that they talk like this as if it's normal conversation and a legitimate argument to question the validity of another persons heritage. I'm part Native American and I DARE him to tell me I don't look like it.

Looks a lot like my father, who was 100% Native American. I guess stereotypes overriding reality maybe?

If I remember correctly, since my wife is from Oklahoma, you only have to be 1/16th Native American (with proof) in order to register to get your card.

if he walked up like that to a band of cherokee's in 1862 he would most likely get scalped than be elected chief.
“Professor Warren claimed she was a Native American, a person of color — and as you can see, she is not,” Brown said at the debate.
The chief of the Cherokee Nation on Wednesday demanded an apology from Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) for what he called an "uneducated, unenlightened and racist portrayal of native peoples" by senior staff on his campaign and in his Senate office.
At a recent campaign rally, senior Brown staffers led a crowd of Brown supporters in a series of "war whoop chants" and "tomahawk chops," an attempt to mock Elizabeth Warren for citing her Native American ancestry in a Harvard guidebook.
Brown's staffers were seen making Native American 'war whoops' and tomahawk chops in a YouTube video in a face-off with Elizabeth Warren reporters in response to claims made by Brown that she checked a 'Native American' box on a job application to advance herself.
