Churchill: It's All a Misunderstanding

Renowned University of Colorado educator, Ward Churchill, responded to questions about his ethnic background by explaining that he misunderstood what his mother and grandmother told him. "I thought Grandma said she was Indian, but actually she was from Indiana. Back in those days Mom was a big fan of the Cleveland Indians, too, so it was important to her that I keep up that family tradition." Flashing that rhetorical brilliance that got him where he is today, Churchill added, "I am who my grandmother said I was. I am who my mother said I was.
