Elizabeth Warren's Tribe: It's Sexist To Attack a Woman Over Whether She Is, Or Most Likely Isn't, a Cherokee
— Ace

What?

Actually they're making a point about critics who have suggested that Elizabeth Warren dishonestly (or at least unwarrantedly) benefited from Affirmative Action, given her, um, purported Cherokee heritage. So one of her spykswymyn vents:

“If Scott Brown has questions about Elizabeth Warren’s well-known qualifications — from her high marks as a teacher to her nationally recognized work on bankruptcy and the pressures on middle class families – he ought to ask them directly instead of hiding behind the nasty insinuations of his campaign and trying to score political points. Once again, the qualifications and ability of a woman are being called into question by Scott Brown who did the same thing with the Supreme Court nomination of Elena Kagan. It’s outrageous.”

So it's an attack on the qualifications of women, or something.

But if Elizabeth Warren's career was advanced owing something to this apparently bogus "family lore" about her Cherokee heritage -- well, that's already an issue. It becomes a Big Honking Issue if in fact she's lying about her "Cherokee heritage."

I have heard the same rumor in my family, though my ancestors didn't cross the pond until the early 1900's.  Also, I'm slightly whiter than an albino polar bear listening to the Dave Matthews Band in a snowstorm just after eating vanilla ice cream.

68 What do her alleged tribe records indicate?

I could, if I wanted to go to the expense, have a Cherokee tribe in Missouri verify that my Grandfather's mother was half Indian originally from a tribe in Tennessee.  My grandfather was raised in Missouri after his parents moved there.  Then his (white) father died, his (allegedly half blood Indian) mother rejoined the Indians, and then died herself.  That happened in 1884.

They keep written records going back to 1800 or thereabouts.
I've verified my verbal family history with photos of official tribe records (some of which are damaged by flood).  If I had as much at stake as Liz Warren, I'd just prove things out and call it good.

114 Lore, or story telling, is just an aspect of critical race theory. CRT, by the way, is a theory by which I can prove to you, using lore,  that Scott Brown is a racist.

Disparaging women is just another dimension of racism, as espoused by the critical theory adopted by the learned professors at Harvard.

148 http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/297312/about-new-obama-slogan-michael-walsh About That New Obama Slogan “Forward,” that is. I knew that sounded awfully familiar. From Wikipedia: Vorwärts (“Forward”) was the central organ of the Social Democratic Party of Germany published daily in Berlin from 1891 to 1933 by decision of the party’s Halle Congress, as the successor of Berliner Volksblatt, founded in 1884. Friedrich Engels and Kurt Tucholsky both wrote for Vorwärts. It backed the Russian Marxist economists and then, after the split in the Party, the Mensheviks. It published articles by Leon Trotsky, but would not publish any by Vladimir Lenin. . . Vorwaerts lives on today as the house organ of Germany’s leftist SPD; you can read all about its illustrious history here (in German). And if you don’t think David Axelrod doesn’t know this, you really ought to think again.

This is Elizabeth Warren's first time to run for office.....isn't it?

 

She's enjoyed having some government jobs, as an appointee. No vetting. ....But now, she has jumped into a Senate race. ....Did she think that she could get away with not being 'vetted'? ....Like Barky did?

 

Trying to wave off this old claim of her 'Cherokee heritage' as "Family Lore" is shaky ground. ....She should've already researched that, in advance of running.

156 On the west coast it's been an inside joke among American Indians for years about how the Cherokees got around, because seemingly every other Caucasian in the eastern US claims to have Cherokee ancestors.Virtually none claim Abnaki, Iroquois, Huron, Sauk, Shawnee,etc., etc., or any of the other hundreds of tribes.I call it the "Indian Eye Roll" when one of them hears it and kinda looks up at the sky and mutters something about "wannabes".

Ancestry dot com is pretty good for confirming the truth or not of statements like this, they have US census records back to 1790, I believe all the censuses note the persons' race, for sure most of the 19th century ones do. Most people will have a hard time confirming their ancestry much past their great-great grandparents, although it can be done with a lot of research.

He also recommended, as UN ambassador (don't ask what the connection is) that Americans invest in the Japanese stock market, right before it tanked in the 1998.  That was when the Nikkei was back up around 14,000.  Now, 14 years later it's not even 9,500.

287 Harvard's a private establishment. Their house, their rules... that is unless you believe in the reaching, all-powerful arm of the Federal government, right?

I believe that Harvard should get no federal funding, at all.  They can be racist all they want.  I don't care.  That should be their right as a private institution.  I just don't want to pay for it.  No federal funds for anything.  No federal financial aid.  No nothing.

And I'd do the same for the rest of the shit schools that are so bent on making everything about race.  They have every right to do that, privately, with their own money.

292 The "Cherokee grandmother" lore is a representation of class insecurity,  a way of excusing or rationalizing their families failure to achieve. It's very common in old white and black families in the South. If someone says they have a Cherokee grandmother it's practically proof that they don't.

Someone wrote a book about it, and I read it in grad school, but I don't recall anything more.

Turning to his left she notices a great number of very mad looking Arapaho Indians staring down.

On her right she observes a host of Cherokee Indians peering at him over the rim of the canyon.

Looking behind, she sees every Apache brave in the world slowly creeping into the canyon, blocking the exit.

Dances with Massachusetts turns to Tonto and says, "We're in a heap of trouble, Tonto!"

304 Africa had similar problems with draft animals. You couldn't bring oxen/horses/camels into the interior because they would die of disease esp sleeping sickness right away. They had almost no ports and no navigable rivers. The distance across was incredible and there was no way to do it because of the terrain. Sowell blames the backwardness of Africa on its geography and the stone age indians on their lack of draft animals. Supposedly the west coast indians were far more sophisticated than the east coast since they had been there for thousands of years longer--the east coast indians were relatively new arrivals from the migrations east.

Two things:

1. The Egyptians were building the pyramids around the time the first, or maybe second wave of NA were making the journey across the land bridge. These people were still hunter/gatherers, and they would remain that way until the regions filled up and future growth required agriculture.

2. The NA used sledge technology to build heavy installations. S;edge technology isn't all that different conceptually from the roller technology the Egyptian used.

Warren has big problems with genuineness.

Claims to have grown up in poverty but the family moved up to the "brittle edge of the middle class" in time for her to drive a sports car to high school

Claims she owns no stocks; true, but has over a million in mutual funds.

Claims to be middle class but earns three times as much as Scott Brown and is worth over ten million dollars.

Thinks the rich should pay more taxes but declined to check the box on MA income tax that would have allowed her to pay a higher tax rate.

The Squaq issue is just the tip of the teepee.

379 She damn well looks Cherokee to me.

Just because she's white doesn't mean she's not.

My great great grandfather was full blooded Cherokee, and her bone structure in her face makes her look like she could be my aunt. I'm not here to defend her and her completely wretched view of how America should be, but if some of y'all are taking her to task for not being Cherokee, I'll be one of the few to say I call horseshit on your bullshit.

As for claiming status within the Cherokee nation, I'm not sure exactly how that worked out in the past. I've never claimed it simply because it's not who I am (although my wife thinks otherwise). I think it's a bit absurd that she rescinded/retracted her family history after the fact - and, I think she should be taken to task for that.

Also, a big f you to the people making jokes about Native Americans. Seriously? That's pathetic in my book. Why make fun of Native Americans when the real culprit is Warren herself? Makes no sense to me.

383 That's a lot of time wasted and energy exerted due to ignorance. Plant a crop. Build a fence. Have a seat. Stay a while. All that land required for their yearly migrations for hunting and gathering can easily be seen as "greedy." No wonder the tribes fought each other so much.

Indians had pyramids, too, in central and south america.  In North America, they had some massive mounds, too.  Amazingly large.  People mistook them for natural piles of dirt for the longest time.

What they really lacked was writing.  You just can't get very far without writing ... or etching (which is why Hebrew goes backwards, as it's an etched language).

A 1% Native American signal is pretty solid, being above noise or random recombination.  DNA testing companies and 3rd party tools can easily pick that up. That's about what you'd get from one full blooded GGGGGrandparent out of your 64 total.

Less than that, gets questionable.
