Wow. She filled out her bar registration as “American Indian.”

How? Why?

I just do not understand how an educated white lady in the 1980s gives that answer.

What's wrong with the simple answer, ... for an advantage?

What isn't?

It's not as if she were answering a "yes" or "no" question.

Don't expect her to last.
She is not very impressive.

I hope President O'Rourke puts her back at the head of the CFPB in 2021.

Elizabeth Warren Admits To Wearing Paleface At College Costume Party


quote:
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Senator Elizabeth Warren is embroiled in controversy once again, this time after she admitted to wearing racially offensive "paleface" at a costume party back in her college days.

"As a proud Native American woman, I now realize that dressing as a white woman at that party all those years ago was insensitive and offensive," she said in a heartfelt apology video. "It was wrong of me to culturally appropriate white culture, as I am only 1023/1024th white European colonizer."

"I only hope that my constituents can forgive me for who I was back in my college days," she added.

Warren was also photographed with a friend dressed as a KKK member, but she refused to distance herself from that photograph, calling the KKK "an important part of the history of abortion rights in America, for which I have fought my whole career."

There's an interesting annual Pinkster Festival in historic New Paltz, NY, where African-Americans dress in the costume of 18th century Dutch settlers. (They don't do whiteface though.) It's primarily an African-American holiday though it comes from a Dutch tradition.

Pics are easy to find, I don't know how to copy here...

Don't worry, Cindy. Sen Jon Tester (D-MT) just confirmed that Bullock is running in 2020. He's apparently waiting until our legislature adjourns in April to announce.

My thought is that from a family history of being told...she was proud.

That's certainly the only story she can tell now.


The old story of 'I never personally claimed that status' seems not to be operational anymore.

Yes, and that ...

a) undercuts the "family proud" contention today,

while

b) suggesting that the simple explanation of wanting an advantage may have some force.

Out of curiosity, what advantage do you think you get when you declare yourself Native American on your bar registration?

The relevant question is what advantage did she think she’d get.
