Fauxcahontas: Elizabeth Warren heralded as ‘Harvard’s first woman of color’; Hilarity ensues
It appears there is even more affirmative action, equal opportunity mocking to be done regarding Elizabeth Warren and the Lefties who enable her. Politico reports that a Fordham piece called her “Harvard’s first woman of color.” No, for reals. Diversity! Or something.
Elizabeth Warren has 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).”
Rut-roh! The internet never forgets, Sacaja-whiner! And Twitter never passes up an opportunity for well-deserved mocking.
