For once, let a woman stand, be heard on issues of substance

Elizabeth Warren
Stop attempt to bring her down
By Carolyn Bennett

On Saturday, despite the mass distraction, Consumer advocate and academic Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts won the Democratic nomination to challenge U.S. Senator Scott Brown. The Christian Science Monitor asked in its Sunday headline, “Has she put the ‘Cherokee issue’ behind her?” Well, I expect she could if the press and Co would.

What really is at issue here is a media manufactured “Native American-Elizabeth Warren attack issue,” a ploy played out for the masses, a ridiculous waste of ink and air. 

This yammering on a non issue from sources who could care less about Native Americans says less about Elizabeth Warren than it does about the U.S. (male mostly) obsession with race and racialism and the malicious use of this card in government and politics, in ivory towers and corporations including media organizations, from rank and file to board rooms; and the needless struggle women and minorities shoulder throughout their lives because of it. 

If there is outrage here, it rests with the peddlers of an insidious attack on and undermining of women and minorities and their aspirations.  

According to the latest Western New England University poll of registered voters, the Monitor reports, Warren leads Brown 45-43 percent (within a 4.4-point margin of error).

For once, let a woman stand and be heard on the substantive issues she puts forth and win or lose on her own arguments, her own credentials, her own demonstrated qualifications, her own character without hurling stupidities, divisiveness, distractions aimed at tarnishing her personally and weakening her drive. 

There is no burning cross or blue dress here, so give it a rest. 

“Has Elizabeth Warren put the ‘'Cherokee issue’ behind her? Elizabeth Warren has won the Democratic nomination to challenge US Senator Scott Brown in Massachusetts. But questions about her claim to Native American ancestry continue to dog her.” Brad Knickerbocker, Staff writer / June 3, 2012 at Christian Science Monitor, http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Elections/Senate/2012/0603/Has-Elizabeth-Warren-put-the-Cherokee-issue-behind-her
