Myth Congeniality

Jonah, Kevin, re Bernie Quigley’s ingenious “Fake but mythic” defense of Elizabeth Warren, does that mean that when she checked the “Native American” and Harvard Law “woman of color” boxes, she merely displaced another mythic Injun or woman of mythic color? Or did she displace an actual non-mythic minority?

For my part, the next time I’m confronted by the neo-apartheid ethnic-categorization boxes of official paperwork, I intend to write in “Mythic”. There’s bound to be a grant or at least a tribal cookbook in it.
