It's a classic matchup of real Indian vs fake Indian. Fake Indian Elizabeth "Pocahontas" Warren takes on Real Indian V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai for a Senate seat.
Real Indian vs Fake Indian
Ayyadurai graduated from MIT. Not impressed yet? He also invented that thing you use called email.
It's ironic that a real Indian will be taking on the only fake Indian in the Senate. He held a private event in Maryland to announce his intentions to run for Senate.

Warren's greatest achievement was being named Harvard Law's "first woman of color." Only problem is, that's not true.
Elizabeth Warren pushed back hard on questions about a Harvard Crimson piece in 1996 that described her as Native American, saying she had no idea the school where she taught law was billing her that way and saying it never came up during her hiring a year earlier, which others have backed up.
But a 1997 Fordham Law Review piece described her as Harvard Law School’s “first woman of color,” based, according to the notes at the bottom of the story, on a “telephone interview with Michael Chmura, News Director, Harvard Law (Aug. 6, 1996).”
Warren admitted that she told Harvard she was Native American in 2012. So basically, she lied to get her job at Harvard.
