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.”


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.
