In case you haven’t heard, Elizabeth Warren described herself in law-school professional directories as a Native American minority from 1986 to 1995.
She said she listed herself as Native American to get invited to luncheons but took it off when none of that happened.
The Boston Herald posted the story and the video –
The Daily Caller said that “Harvard University’s decision to promote Warren as a minority faculty member brought the issue front-and-center, but the Boston Herald reported Monday that Warren described herself that way when she taught at the University of Texas and the University of Pennsylvania.”
A genealogist found that Warren has a great-great-great-grandmother listed as Cherokee in an 1894 document. That makes her 1/32 American Indian.
The Telegram reported that lineage information along with the following massive lies –
…On Friday, Warren said she had no idea that her Native American heritage was touted by Harvard as proof of its faculty’s diversity in the 1990s.
“I think I read it on the front page of the Herald,” Warren said.
“I don’t even remember,” she added, when asked about a 1996 article in the Harvard Crimson touting her minority status.
As the story heated up, she said she was “proud” of her Native American heritage and explained that, while she had no documentation of ancestry, she learned of her roots through family lore. Pu-lease. My dad used to claim we were descendants of Mary, Queen of Scots, but that never once made me feel like ordering people around — well, not usually — because I had no idea if it was true.
Yesterday, finally, she admitted that she listed herself as a minority in law school directories for more than 10 years. The reason she gave? She wanted to meet 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,” she said.

According to Yahoo News, at least one American Indian group said she had better be able to defend that claim. I don’t know if 1/32 counts but they might not like knowing that she thinks all Indians can be stereotyped as having high cheekbones.
Elizabeth Warren, the faux Indian, mimicked Jimmy the Greek with her latest comments. She said she knows she’s an Indian because a grandfather had high cheek bones like all the Indians do. Isn’t that stereotyping? Isn’t that racist?
Here is her statement –
Jimmy the Greek Snyder was a famous sports commentator who was fired from NFL Today for saying –
The black is a better athlete to begin with because he’s been bred to be that way, because of his high thighs and big thighs that goes up into his back, and they can jump higher and run faster because of their bigger thighs and he’s bred to be the better athlete because this goes back all the way to the Civil War when during the slave trade’n the big… the owner… the slave owner would, would, would, would breed his big black to his big woman so that he could have ah, ah big, ah big, ah big black kid see…
People called him a racist and he was gone. So, come on Massachusetts, don’t do it, don’t vote for her, make her gone too.
