BTW Ingmar Bergman was very Swedish and very white, along with being an amazing filmmaker.
The idea that anyone from the British isles is "white" remains very preposterous. According to the Boston Evening Globe most of those originating from the Ireland were not white. You don't seem to understand the economic connotations in these issues.
You probably don't understand the plight of many, today. For someone to piggyback on affirmative action in a callous manner to simple get ahead just shows that Mrs. Warren is out of touch with the actual reality as faced by many of the voters.
