Cherokee Con: The Racist Selfishness of Elizabeth Warren Adopted Tribe

It seems like only yesterday the Cherokees were kicking blacks out of their tribe. Oh wait. It was yesterday! Cherokee Nation Faces Scrutiny For Expelling Blacks : NPR / September 19, 2011

The Cherokee Nation recently decided to limit its membership to people who can prove they have Indian blood. This strips of their citizenship rights about 2,800 African-Americans who are descendants of slaves once owned by wealthy Cherokees. Those rights include access to health care clinics, food distribution for the poor, and assistance for low-income homeowners.
The move prompted protests among these African-Americans, who are known as Freedmen, because for long periods in the past, they enjoyed equal rights in the Cherokee tribe. But in more recent history, their citizenship rights have been repeatedly challenged.
Well at least, if they do let Elizabeth Warren hang around their casinos, she won't have to hobnob with "those lesser breeds without the Law."

Somebody should ask Fauxcahontas: "Which Side Are You On?"
