  •  Actually, Warren has been very (16+ / 0-)

    clear in her statements about her heritage - she says she is part Indian. When her mother told her about it (when she was a kid) she never asked for paperwork. Her grandparents or her grandparents (sorry, I don't remember properly) had to elope because one of them was part Indian and the other's family didn't approve, so it was kind of a big deal for the family at one point.
    What kid would - after hearing such a story - ask for the paperwork?? Even if you are an adult you'd only do that if you're researching your ancestry. I think the value of a person's heritage is very personal, it has nothing to do with accountancy unless you need documentation for practical reasons.
    So, Elisabeth Warren has stated clearly that she is part Indian, that this is was she has been told by her mother.
    Scott Brown can't prove the opposite and hasn't even tried to (the "look at her" argument is no evidence whatsoever and I suppose he must have been told that).
    He has said she has used this "lie" about her heritage to gain advantages. He can't prove that she did anything remotely like that either and hasn't even made any serious effort.
    The guy is simply race-baiting and trying to get people to see Warren as someone who has abused affirmative action simultaneously.

    The future is renewable.
