Let me give you a hypothetical. Let’s say I tell you, as a white man, as about the whitest man you’ll ever see, that my grandmother had big lips so I must have African American blood in me. Well, to make fun of me for saying such blatantly ridiculous, racist things, you start going around calling me Booker T. Washington.
This is what Elizabeth Warren did with American Indians, saying her grandmother had high cheek bones. She’s using this to give herself minority status for political reasons and to get her a job at Harvard.
