Professor Elizabeth Warren, the cigar-store Indian from Oklahoma, could learn a thing or two from namesake Jeffrey (no relation) Warren, a 17-year-old high school student from Riverside, Calif.
He is the young man who made the news recently when he won a $1,000 college scholarship for black students sponsored by Riverside's Martin Luther King Senior Citizens Club. Jeffrey Warren is white.

The content of one’s character can be very relevant in an election. Look where we are now after the American public has ignored it.
"If asked," Obama wrote, "Toot would turn her head in profile to show off her beaked nose, which, along with a pair of jet-black eyes, was offered as proof of Cherokee blood."
He's got the same evidence.
Fo shizzle my nizzle!
I wonder what questions were asked in the telephone interview, this kid must have been pretty smart.
1) Define the word SHOW: A place at the edge of the ocean
Should’a’ asked him about his birfday.
Funny you mention "birfday" - Shaq did a commercial for Denny's years and years ago and he had a line about the "big breakfast" - he pronounced it "bref-fes" and no one blinked an eye.
My name is “An..fer..ney”! (excerpt from “High School High”)
But they gave him the scholarship anyway."
