CDIB's are like tattoos Jews wore at concentration camps, except we've bought into the idea that we must have them. As such, so has John Q.

"Just found out I'm Indian," means, "Just found out I can get a card."
Benn thinking about this Zeke.
I had assumed it was more like "just found out" means "Just found the wannabe way" I think both situations could be correct...and even at the same time. The instance you mention leaves a bit more of a rotton taste in the mouth.
