think the attacks against Elizabeth Warren, who pretended to be an American Indian to advance her career, are wrong. To the contrary, she simply did what we all should be doing! She sabotaged America's racist affirmative action regime, or -- the term I prefer to call it -- America's affirmative apartheid.
She should be our role model. We should all do the same thing she did and proclaim ourselves members of whichever fashionable list of preferred "minorities" the racists administering affirmative apartheid happen to be promoting this week.
There are lots of ways we can do so. First, anthropologists believe that the human species originated on the African continent. So, by my reckoning, that makes us all African-Americans. Why can't we proclaim ourselves such on the "race identification forms" used for hiring and college admissions?
In addition, I have always had a special sense of repulsion at the Ivy League institutions implementing affirmative apartheid. Just consider this: until the 1960s, American Ivy League universities openly and unabashedly had quotas designed to keep out Jews. Until the 1960s they did not hide this and proudly admitted to the quotas. And then, a few years later, the very same institutions were again discriminating against Jews because Jews had been defined as part of the "white" ethnicity against which their affirmative apartheid programs were discriminating. Remember when the liberuhs used to pretend that affirmative action preferences were needed to compensate members of groups who had in the past been victims of discrimination? Well, Harvard and its sisters today proudly discriminate against the very same Jews against whom they proudly discriminated in the past and for which discriminative affirmative action is supposed to be the remedy.

A friend , writes GAY on any form that in any way might ask.
He says let them prove otherwise!
I’m an American Indian. To prove it, I scalped some tickets to the baseball game last week.
I actually thought of saying on a job application once that I was part black. I was actually accused of it by a high school girlfriend when she found out my maternal grandmother’s middle name was Pearl. :-D
Did I mention that I’m 1/32nd Inuit? My great-great-great-great grampa mentioned this in his journal, which I’ve lost, but I remember seeing it as clear as yesterday.
Excellent article. I really like his using the terms “affirmative apartheid,” run by the “affirmative Klansters.”
I’m also native American. I was born here, that makes me native.
I urged a young relative to list herself as Hispanic on her grad school application, in order to enhance her chances of acceptance. Let them prove otherwise. She declined, and as a result, has not gained acceptance anywhere.
Ok. That is funny. Well played.
Oh yea you guys? You should see my like totally high cheek bones and I like firewater to boot.
That makes me 3/32 Indian
The left and the blacks themselves have done black Americans the greatest disservice possible with their self-imposed cultural apartheid.
The generational bitterness and hatred has done nothing but empower the left and keep black Americans “down”, in monetary and cultural poverty.
My ex defined herself as “Asian-Pacific Islander” when she determined that the State (her employer) could not question her on it. Her mother was Irish & her father a Slovak serving in the Marines. She was born in Honolulu, so the illusion was that she just might be part Hawaiian.
This drove her “big-boss” - a radical Latina with a chip on her shoulder - absolutely nuts since she couldn’t prove a thing.
Any forms of racial preference and set-asides are wrong and un-American. Such “laws” should be stricken from the books.
I have a friend in an interracial marriage. Her children are a mix of so many things ethnically they could not even begin to answer the question.
My ancestors were Scottish indentured servants, who were treated worse than dirt by their government corporate land lords, treated like slaves.
I want pay back. I am now calling myself African American!
Not only that, a maternal ancestor married a native American in the mid 1700’s
AND I HAVE HIGH CHEEK BONES! ( Got ‘er made in the shade!)
I am Scottish-Afro-Native American, and in all truth, can speak gaelic, swahili and mique maque. I am going to put on my kilt, war paint, and the Pig Foot Stew pepper pot! After that I’ll strike up my Highland Bagpipes.
Bring on that affirmative apartheid!
ITS WALK ABOUT TIME!
I’m half Irish. I demand reparations and entitlements because of the way my ancestors were treated like 3rd class citizens when they immigrated here in the 1800’s.
Their identity politics depends upon us self-identifying as the white devil.
If we don't do that, we screw their plans royally.
my high schooler’s depraved school wanted me to fill out a form designating a race for him. I declined. They called. I told them I thought it was silly. They sent another form. I didn’t send it back. They called him to the office, took a look at him, and checked some box and it was done. So THEY defined him by his blond hair and skin color. DEPRAVED.
I’m a white guy and I’m way more Latino than most of the people that claim to be.
My dad is from Lazio, Italy. Lazio is ancient Latium, home of the Latin people who spoke the Latin language and became better known to history as the Romans.
Which reminds me of the funniest and stupidest thing I ever saw in college. The Hispanic students group put up signs that they didn’t want to be called “Hispanic” any more because that name came from “Hispania”, an evil colonialist power. They wanted to be called....
I had a good laugh.
I use african sometimes and native american also. Recently I put “human” on a jury duty form, I was not called...
I work with a guy whose blonde haired blue eyed wife was born in South Africa. She recently became a US citizen - he now tells everyone he is married to an African American.
Well, nearly all of us non-pure-blooded Africans are about the same percent Neanderthal as Elizabeth Warren claimed to be Cherokee. So let’s all be members of the “Neanderthal” minority!!!!
Elizabeth Warren is “Neanderthal”, too! Ugh, cave-sister!
What’s actually going to destroy the system is DNA testing, I think, and some sort of lawsuit.
If enough blonde blue-eyed people can be found that have a scrap of sub-saharan African or Native American DNA, and apply for race-based scholarships and sue when they are denined, and can get it into court, the system is going to collapse of its own absurdity.
You are hereby awarded a 3 point bonus.
It’s all so stupid. I have one HLA type that is only found in Africans and some Jews. Deep down we are all mutts.
Getting married in Virginia - the form had a place where I was supposed to check off the “race” of myself and my wife.
When left blank - the “helpful” civil servant marked “Caucasian”.
That was no doubt the official form that got Mr. Loving in trouble when he married his pregnant girlfriend who was black - leading State officials to break in on his honeymoon, arrest them, and then sentence them to exile from Virginia.
Same here except I use "Native American" And I have a birth certificate to prove it as I was born in Chicago.
Both of my grandfathers spoke French. I am from Louisiana. Read up sometime how the Acadians were driven from Canada by the British. Not a pretty story.
There was a really funny editorial/essay a few years back hashing over this very thing.
So... African-American doesn’t just refer to skin color? No?
So... Is a white person born in Africa that emigrate to America an African-American? No? Really?
So... How about a black skinned Caribbean born person in America, are they African-American? Yes? Really?
You forgot to add that the game was in Cleveland.
I read an article last night that marriage licenses began in an effort to prevent “mixed marriages” and that George Washington and Abraham Lincoln did not have marriage licenses. The state is going to overreach on all this stuff and it will blow up in their face.
It worked for “ter-ai-za”
How can a person say they are Caucasian if their ancestry doesn’t trace back to the Caucus region?
I know a girl who is offended when people call her African because she is Caribbean.
Racists almost always want the power of the government enforcing their prejudices.
Gun control was also started as a way of keeping guns from Blacks.
Excellent article on how Socialism fosters racism.
Capitalism and the market economy encourage racial, ethnic, and religious tolerance, while supporting a plurality of diverse lifestyles and customs. Heavily regulated or socialist economies, in contrast, tend to breed intolerance and ethnic persecution. Socialism leads to low or negative rates of economic growth, disputes over resource use, and concentrated political power-all conditions which encourage conflict rather than cooperation. Ethnic and religious minorities usually do poorly when political coercion is prevalent. Economic collapses - usually associated with interventionism-worsen the problem by unleashing the destructive psychological forces of envy and resentment, which feed prejudice and persecution.
While discrimination is present in societies of all kinds, discriminators must pay pecuniary costs for indulging their prejudices in a market setting. Even the prejudiced usually will trade with minorities; bigots attempt to oppress minorities by socializing the costs through government action, but bigots usually are less willing to bear these costs themselves. Repeated commercial interactions also increase the social familiarity of customs or lifestyles that otherwise might be found unusual or alien. Sustained economic growth alleviates political and social tensions by creating more for everybody.

That’s crazy. My friend is full blood native american and she has blond hair and blue eyes. I look at her and don’t see indian. It was a surprise to me.
I totally agree. I know a blond blue eyed part native American who gets gorgeously tan in the summer, but I wouldn’t have known about the native American part if she hadn’t told me.
And He has made all nations of men of one blood to dwell on all the face of the earth, ordaining fore-appointed seasons and boundaries of their dwelling.
(from Seinfeld episode)
“Hi, I’m Donna Chang”
“You’re not Chinese!”
“No...I’m from Long Island”
“Well that changes everything...I’m not taking advice from some girl from Long Island!”
I have been checking homosexual, black, female. Might as well go for all the goodies!
In the former Soviet Union commies bunched all nationalities into one, they hoped, happy Gulag. But on passports they pointedly distinguished persons real nationality, for purpose of pitting them against each other, as to distract all from pondering real circumstance of their serfdom to the state.
Comintern International has much better ingredient selection in US, due to adding a race into the soup of serfdom.
Cleveland vs. Atlanta. Tribal warfare.
You do know that Federal bennies use “1/16” as the cutoff?
Tune: Indian Reservation (The Lament of the Cherokee Reservation Indian)
She took some small Cherokee ration
Put this on her information
"Native A," although it's slight
She checked the box even though she's white
Took a while till it was known
That Liz is Anglo to the bone
And all the claims she made before
Aren't Lizzie Warren's anymore
Cherokee Checkbox, Cherokee Pride
So proud you hold your cheekbones high
She took the whole Indian fable
Used it for her PC label
Though she's blond with eyes of blue
She's still a redskin through and through
Cherokee Checkbox, Cherokee Pride
So proud you hold your cheekbones high
But maybe someday when she's beat
Cherokee Checkbox will retreat
We should all do the same thing she did and proclaim ourselves members of whichever fashionable list of preferred "minorities" the racists administering affirmative apartheid happen to be promoting this week.
Steve is wrong here. Jews have not significantly been hurt by Affirmative Action. Sure some, like my mother, lost scholarships, but Jews are a large percentage at elite colleges. Any real decline has been due to the failure of Jews to have children. The real losers to affirmative action are not the upper middle class whites of all religions, but poor and lower middle class whites, especially those not from the coastal cosmopolitan centers.
