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.
That's not really the point and I'm amazed you don't seem to get it. YOU OUGHT TO BE OUTRAGED AT ELIZABETH WARREN!!!
Elizabeth Warren may very well be 1/32nd Native American. But culturally she grew up as white as someone direct from Scotland. But when she entered
academia she began to claim she was "Native American" to take advantage of affirmitive action. Her first university bragged that they now had on their
faculty their first "woman of color." What a complete crock!
Do you get it yet? She used a dubious claim of Native American heritage to get to the head of the line. That's despicable. Affirmitive Action was
designed to help people who grew up disadvantaged, who, because of their color or religion, endured discrimination, poverty, and a whole manner of
social ills. Now just what has Elizabeth Warren endured in that regard? Nothing. She grew up in a middle-class white culture.
If you really are Native American, and especially if you are culturally native American, i.e.: You grew up on the Rez and faced everything from
alcoholism to poverty and crime, then your OUTRAGE ought to be directed at Elizabeth Warren for ursurping your culture, stealing it out from
underneath you to advance herself.
Brown and his staff have it exactly right. Elizabeth Warren is a complete fraud. Supporting Warren in this is completely delusional.
