This is not new. If one of your parents is part Native American or full NA and one is white then you are a white person. You can also claim minority status if you can prove you have so much NA blood and it is documented somehow. I had a friend once you actually had long blond hair, and a squarish nose and looks like Warren. Her mother was half Cherokee or something and her dad was white. They were white people but she could have claimed NA status if she wanted or her mother since she was fully one fourth NA. Now if her mom had been black and NA she would be black unless she looked white, confused? Race is real.
Massachusetts senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren described herself in law-school professional directories as a Native American minority from 1986 to 1995.
The white Democratic candidate has so far offered no evidence that she is, in fact, part Native American, suggesting that she may have falsified that ethnic credential to advance her academic career in the early affirmative-action era. But “it is true,” a Warren spokeswoman told The Daily Caller on Monday, “and we’re working on digging up some sort of evidence to appease you.”

U.K. dish-cleaning products company Paladone is being called "racist," after releasing a line of '70s-inspired products for their sponge line, according to the Daily Mail.

Coining the sponges "Disco," "Beehive," "Punk," and "Diva," a spokesperson for Paladone says, "Our range of four washing up sponges are designed to make an everyday chore like washing up more fun." Each of the sponges has a brillo pad Afro and even caricatures soul icon…
Do Americans – or at least a significant portion of them -- resent success? To hear some tell it, the biggest division in the country today is between those striving for success – and those who want to tear down the successful. According to presumptive Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney, Obama and the Democrats fall into the latter category.
Let’s all stop judging people who talk to themselves. New research says that those who can't seem to keep their inner monologues in -- raving bus station denizens, for the most part, excluded -- are actually more likely to stay on task, remain focused better and show improved perception capabilities. Not bad, really, for some extra jabbering.
According to a series of experiments written up in the Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology by professors Gary Lupyan and Daniel Swignley, the act of using verbal clues to trigger mental pictures helps people function quicker.
Apple CEO Tim Cook says the idea of a laptop-tablet hybrid is tantamount to shoving a toaster into a refrigerator. It's a clever, sound-bite-y analogy. It's also wrongheaded. But before we go there, let's give Cook's comments the full podium treatment, so no one can say I'm taking him out of context.
The analogy comes from Apple's earnings call on Tuesday (via…
Sometime in the last week or so, we've heard from multiple sources, Accel Partners has sold very significant chunks of Facebook stock. So significant, in fact, that their ownership percentage has dropped to a point where they are no longer the largest venture shareholder in the company.
Prior to the sale they had somewhere around 10% of Facebook. They paid just…
Forget Facebook: Why Regular Joes Can't Invest in the Decade's Hottest IPO -- and Probably Shouldn't Try
Even after some disappointing news came to light in the company's latest public filing earlier this week, investors are jostling to get shares in Facebook’s epic debut in the stock market next month. Fuhgeddaboudit: Individual investors are unlikely to be able to buy Facebook shares before they start trading on the Nasdaq stock exchange.
There are three reasons for this: The big boys are at the front the line, you are at the back of the line, and there is no middle of the line.
This may be a minority viewpoint -- in fact, I'm positive it's a minority viewpoint -- but I get far more excited about new versions of Apple's iOS than I do about new iPhones and iPads. There's only so much Apple can do to reinvent hardware that will always consist of thin slabs of glass and metal, but the potential to improve iOS is infinite.
