Re: Ms Warren Has Some Serious Class

I didn't say she used it as a part of the hiring process. But she has either represented herself as a member of a First Nation, or allowed others to do that, and that bothers me. Not as much as a bunch of other stuff, and not as much as about a trillion things Trump has done, but I would be dishones...

Suranis, I don't dislike you because you're Catholic
I dislike you because you're an argumentative, arrogant arsehole. Also, angry. Very angry. Seriously, dude, that's not healthy.

Re: Ms Warren Has Some Serious Class

I'm fine with that. I never claimed otherwise; I merely expressed sympathy with the view of some Native Americans (such as the Cherokee nation, as quoted earlier in the thread) that she is not, in their opinion, Native American. My broader point is merely that it is wrong to represent yourself as a...

Re: Ms Warren Has Some Serious Class

And as I said, *to the extent* that she has done that, it is, in my opinion, wrong. Look, after being SHOWN she hasn't done that, you still cling to the tatters of "well, she has to have done *SOMETHING* because fucking liars said she did. And. you know, women." Hi.

Re: Ms Warren Has Some Serious Class

Representing yourself as a vulnerable minority, while enjoying all the privileges bestowed by whiteness, is hollow. She does not understand the Native American experience - the bone-deep sorrow of that genocide, the ever-present racism, the cultural appropriation. Indeed I would argue that she is t...

Re: Ms Warren Has Some Serious Class

I think it matters. The only reason it matters is because some dumbfuck has been masturbating out the word "Pocahontas" for 3 fucking years now.

Re: Ms Warren Has Some Serious Class

Let me see if I have this right. Like many, Warren was told by family she has a Native ancestor. She has mentioned this publicly, perhaps foolishly, because she believes it or wants to believe it. She hasn't benefited from this purported ancestry, or only minimally. She isn't running around trying ...

It is offensive; but it won't matter; the GOP base is composed of people who think the public sector is a waste of space. The GOP has been attacking government and government service for decades now.
