>> Last night on MSNBC after the Scott Brown/Elizabeth Warren debate for the Massachusetts Senate, MSNBC host Melissa Harris made the assertion that because Warren grew up believing she was Native American then she is Native American.

Harris: “If candidate Warren grew up thinking she is Native American by heritage, who are we to say she is not? And who are we to define her based on narrow constructs of race.”

You are what you feel, apparently. No need to box Warren into one category of race despite liberals boxing people into race all the time. <<

I grew up thinking I was 1/4 Scots-Irish (it's what my mom always told me), but when I did some looking into my family tree a few years ago, I found out that one grandparent was mostly Swiss/German and Dutch, with a little French thrown in. If there's any Scots-Irish anywhere there, I have yet to find it.

During and after WWII there was quite a lot of anti-German sentiment in the US, and quite a few people of German ancestry stopped talking about it. In fact a good number changed their last names slightly to make them less German-sounding.

That's why my parents didn't teach their kids to speak German.
