    Hey, I tried to anticipate the next expansion in ethnic categorization yesterday with my proposal for recognition of left-handed Finns as a protected minority, but that obviously doesn’t have the same ring to it as Jehmu Green’s contribution in this clip. Last night, the Democratic strategist paired off with The Daily Caller’s Tucker Carlson over the controversy surrounding Elizabeth Warren and her claims to Native American heritage, and Green dismissed Carlson as nothing more than a “bow tie’n white boy”:

    all the racial hiarchy rules and double standards are hard to remember correctly. is there a playbook somewhere to brush up on the technicalities? does part Native white woman from a low status school trump a black man from an Ivy League school? what are the relative weightings for the different checkboxes?
