I dang sure didn't read it from huffnpuff, but I thought he was on the VMI yearbook staff. Supposedly, because of that he's guilty of allowing blackface pics into said yearbook.


Rod Serling, we need you stat.

EW is the definition of using cultural appropriation to get ahead, how can anyone defend her?

It's not simply cultural appropriation...it's fraud. She has materially benefitted from falsely claiming a status to which she was not entitled. FRAUD.

I'd link to the article, but I'd rather not give HuffPo any more hits.

That's not whataboutism, that's news. Or is it only news when someone of the opposite party does it?

That was flat out whataboutism, trying to deflect attention from the original person.

And yes, both parties do it.

Do you consider it a racially charged insult when Elizabeth Warren claims to be an American Indian to further her legal career?

Wingnut indeed.

So because she did something wrong, that gives latitude to people to use an obvious racial epithet? How about not being a racist for the sake of NOT being a racist.

Seems that the nickname is rather appropriate......

It is believed that Pocahontas was born around 1595 to a Powhatan chief. Her given name at birth was Matoaka, although she was sometimes called Amonute. “Pocahontas” was a derogatory nickname meaning “spoiled child” or “naughty one.”

i'm going (to pretend) to agree with Sum on this one.

i call for a moratorium on all Elizabeth Warrren memes and jokes. EW Google searches may be done, but only if they're saved until mid-August 2020.

This woman is a gift.

as a side note, we're pretty sure that 'Pocahontas' translates as 'Low-Hanging-Fruit' in the Lenni Lanape language.

You didn't answer my question, "Do you consider it a racially charged insult when Elizabeth Warren claims to be an American Indian to further her legal career?"

And are you saying that people are racists because they call out racism?

I dunno - She has the cultural appropriation down pat, but I haven't heard any news of her raping anyone yet. She needs both before she could qualify to help run Virginia.

No I don't call it a racially charged insult, I call it a mistake. A mistake she has apologized for. Continuing to call her Pocahontas is an obvious racial slur.

Bunch of people were outraged about gov Northam and his wearing of black face. But calling someone a name is ok with them. Sounds like you guys here are defending using racial slurs.

So, she's saying it's a good thing that illegals are taking the jobs of actual American citizens?? OMFG. She's crazier than I thought. That will go over real well in middle America.

Can anybody really wonder why virtually the entire US, except for the coasts, is red? The DNC has completely abandoned the working class. What's left of it, that is.

What I keep thinking is how fuckin stupid the voters in Massachusetts are for voting in this moron. Then again I'm in NY and we have plenty of retarded voters (I used retarded on purpose for the liberal pansies).

DHS just cancelled Global Entry etc etc.... for NY state residents. Lucky I have it for 4 more years but after that I'm screwed. I hate living in a liberal state. If it wasn't for family/work we would be out of here.

Chief Warren has ZERO Chance of winning the nomination.
