What's the Real Race Issue Here?

So Jacoby's assumption is that Warren has faced horrible discrimination in her life from those who look at her blond hair and blue eyes and and accuse her of being Cherokee? Has Jacoby discovered a Cherokee tribe of blue-eyed blonds? Jacoby must be living in some alternative universe. I have no problem with Brown pointing out the utter ridiculousness and moral corruption of some self-entitled lib like Warren trying to grab an unearned advantage by playing the "affirmative action" race card. Anyone out there really think she deserves race-based preferences over others? Talk of "cringe-inducing"?!

Twice Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren have faced off in televised debates, and twice the Massachusetts Senate candidates traded blows over Warren's claim to American Indian ancestry within seconds of the opening bell. The Republican incumbent and his Democratic challenger have launched dueling campaign ads calling even more attention to the issue, and there has even been a mini-kerfuffle over the low-rent antics of a few Brown staff members, who were filmed war-whooping and tomahawk-chopping at a campaign event in Dorchester.

Plainly the question of Warren's Cherokee heritage isn't going away any time soon. I'll be surprised if...
