We're All Minorities Now

Democratic aspirant for the Massachusetts senate seat of alcoholic bad driver Teddy Kennedy has been caught with her hand in the affirmative action cookie jar. Claiming to be of native American ancestry may have gotten her a post on the increasingly irrelevant Harvard faculty but the bogus heredity might cost her what little political credibility she ever had and ultimately, the election. It turns out that not only is her aboriginal status imaginary, she's actually descended from one of the soldiers that marched the Cherokee from their homes in Georgia on the "Trail of Tears" to Oklahoma in 1838. So here we have an example of a Caucasian that's not only the beneficiary of stolen native American property, as basically all Americans now are, but also a thief of native American identity as well.
