    Seriously, I want to know, because if I said something this stupid everyone on the left would say I was a racist.

    I'm not seeing a racist comment. She was repeating what her grandmother said about native Americans having high cheekbones.

    Democrats are permitted to be racist.

    How is being proud of your own diverse ancestry racist?

    Sorry, but your premise is apples are oranges and day is night.

    Does that mean that if I said my father used to tell me the only good Indian is a dean Indian it wouldn't be racist?

    If she said she was part black 'because I have big fat lips, and of course all blacks have big fat lips' would that be racist?

    That video doesn't make me think she is racist.....dishonest and daft maybe but not racist.

    Then again i don't assign racist too lightly.....although some people in this forum would disagree with about my being like that it is true, they just are racists and don't want to believe it ;)

    I am proud of my diverse ancestry, which is why I would never say something like "All Swedes have blonde hair."
