Cowboys and Pretendians

Groups are accusing the new hire of misrepresenting her heritage 

I have no idea if Susan Taffe Reed is of Native descent or not, but I do know that braid and feathers -- along with her saying "I have participated in Native American ceremonies and powwow dancing since I was a little girl" -- aren't helping her case.

Is this whole racial misrepresentation phenomenon something new, or were we just not hearing about it as much pre-Internet?

Dude, what the fuck? Is this South Park?

It's one thing to wear a costume, I don't care about it. But to wear it and call yourself that?

Do we have to blood test all these people, now?
