Racism at the NEH in the Politically Correct mid-1990s

I have been posting on newspapers and magazines this morning, trying to tell the white world how Elizabeth Warren could think of herself as part Indian. I have not talked yet about an ugly phenomenon in the Politically Correct mid 1990s, when the NEH demanded that you list yourself as of one race. I resigned from a panel because of that. The goal may have been well meaning but the demand was racist. How things have changed, with people acknowledging mixed racial heritages! I don't know if this racist policy is still in effect, but I was not treated nicely when I called it racist in 1995!
