I am part Cherokee, too, according to my dad and granddad, and am also fiercely proud of that, but I don't look Native American, am not an official member of the Cherokee Nation, and have gone through school in achieving three degrees and through life in general by listing myself as white or Caucasian, not by filling anybody's affirmative action slot. Ms. Warren should do the same. And so far as Haaaah-vahd goes, the more my attention is directed to some of its graduates -- Warren, Obama, Kagan -- the more I doubt it still warrants its previously prestigious position. Maybe Yale IS better.
