Indian say “How!”

As in, “how” could Elizabeth Warren claim to be Cherokee?  Because her great-great-great grandmother was, silly.  “Why”?  To ensure entry into Harvard, of course. 

And it’s obvious why she’d drop the minority tag afterwards.  “Passing for white” means she got into the Ivy League purely on merit (minus any female affirmative action going on back then.

But c’mon!  No way is this earth-dark squaw ever gonna convince people she’s Caucasian. 

 

Good grief.  I had a full-blooded Cherokee great-grandmother myself.  And maybe I didn’t get much Cherokee blood from her, since she was my step-great-grandmother.   But the ol’ family tree goes gnarly just a few generations back.  It’s even odds that I’m more Native American than Ms. Cherokee Harvard.

The story shouldn’t be that this is especially contemptible for a leftist.  The story is that it isn’t.  It’s par for the course.

I doubt there’s a single moral leftist still in existence.  Assuming any such thing ever existed.

    Wormme- The law makes it so the “minorities” are granted entrance for heritage and not achievement, indeed! Change the law would be my mantra. These shitbags don’t have a clue about being minor. They only know how to get what they want via other methods like cheating.

      That’s one reason they want as many rules and regs as possible. Since they let each other get away with bending or breaking laws, every new one strengthens them and weakens everyone else.

    This whole idea of giving “minorities” special treatment is ridiculous. The stuff is now over here as well. In Germany they want more immigrants to become nurses. What’s the incentive? Lower the requirements. In Berlin applicants for the police academy don’t need to pass German exams anymore to get in and I’m really looking forward to how well these cops with lacking German skills will do once they have to write reports and stuff (since cops have a lot of paperwork.)

    The funny thing is, this entire approach is effectively “racist”, since it clearly states “blacks, and American Indians aren’t as smart as whites and Asians.” Same over here. Apparently Turks and similar aren’t as smart as Germans, that’s why the requirements have to be lowered to get them in.

    Just another step in dumbing everything down.

    Also, Elizabeth Warren is as much Cherokee as I’m Czech or Croatian.

      Yeah, the assumptions for their policies escape them. And of course once folks start relying on advantages, they can never catch up. Crutches can be good, for strengthing badly injured or wasted legs. Then they just hold you back.

      That’s why I would have had no problem with some legal help for previously oppressed U.S. citizens, like blacks and Native Americans. But there are two vital caveats:

      1) Standards for jobs that involve other peoples’ lives and health–medical fields, cops and firemen–cannot be relaxed. And,

      2) The “crutch” must be sunsetted legislation. Either gradually phase it out, or eliminate it at a time established at the very beginning. The absolute time limit, even for the greatest injustices, should obviously be one generation.

      Well, should have been. All the unfairness now is on the other side of the pendulum.

      • Edohiguma says:

        Yep. Base it on merit only. If you’re good, you’re in. Skin color should be irrelevant.

        It’s funny how those who fight “racism” most, are the ones who are most blatantly “racist”.

    I’m just waiting for the Hawk to do another version of Chutch.

    This just in:

    A Marine squad was marching north of Fallujah when they came upon an Iraqi terrorist who was badly injured and unconscious. On the opposite side of the road was an American Marine in a similar but less serious state. The Marine was conscious and alert and as first aid was given to both men, the squad leader asked the injured Marine what had happened.

    The Marine reported, I was heavily armed and moving north along the highway here, and coming south was a heavily armed insurgent. We saw each other and both took cover in the ditches along the road. I yelled to him that Saddam Hussein was a miserable, lowlife scum bag who got what he deserved. and he yelled back that Barack Obama is a lying, good-for-nothing, left wing Commie who isn’t even an American. So I said that Osama Bin Laden dresses and acts like a frigid, mean-spirited lesbian! He retaliated by yelling, Oh yeah? Well, so does Nancy Pelosi!

    And, there we were, in the middle of the road, shaking hands, when a truck hit us ………..
