Skip to comments.Elizabeth Warren to name new chief of staff (proper color choice this time)
Posted on 12/27/2018 9:45:58 AM PST by Libloather
Senator Elizabeth Warren named a new chief of staff on Thursday, changing up her office ahead of a possible presidential run and making it one of only a handful in the Senate to be led by a person of color.
Although Reid is not on Warrens campaign team, her appointment is a sign the senator is taking the diversity of her staff seriously. Earlier this year, Warren faced criticism for releasing the results of a DNA test she took to address President Trumps taunts that she had lied about her claims of having distant Native American heritage. Some progressives were put off by her linking genetic science with ethnicity and wondered if there was enough diversity in her inner circle of advisers to warn against such a move.
The issue of staff diversity will likely matter in a Democratic primary, in which voters of color are expected to be critical. Nonwhite voters made up more than a quarter of the 2018 midterm electorate, according to exit polls. According to the Senate Democrats Diversity Initiative, about 36 percent of Warrens Senate staff was nonwhite as of June, placing her in the middle of the pack of 2020 contenders in the Senate on that metric. But she has been known for having people of color in high-level positions, including Tracey Lewis as deputy campaign manager in 2012 and Chris Huntley, who became her speechwriter earlier this year.

Will Lizzy be running as a Cherokee?
Yeah me too and it was out loud
I could vote for a genuine injun squaw. But never gor a lying, fake one.
Reid, who? She is not named in the portion of the article shown. Anyway, it looks like Liz will be getting a pass on
her Cherokee Ambitions.
Will Warren’s ‘Chief of Staff’ wear a feathered headdress?
Asking 4 a friend.
“...her claims of having distant Native American heritage.”
She didn’t lie about having distant Native American heritage, she lied about having recent enough heritage to give her “papaw” high cheekbones, and that her parents had to elope because her mother was “a Deleware and Cherokee” Indian. Warren is just a liar, but the author doesn’t want to admit that.
“Will Warrens Chief of Staff wear a feathered headdress?”
I hope the news media isn’t afraid to ax that question.
I am bitterly, BITTERLY disappointed that Warren overlooked/passed over deserving Arapahoe candidates! I had such high hopes.
“Person of Color” is so insulting.
Say hello to Chief Ofstaff!
What I’ve never heard any Liberal explain is why it is racist to exclude a person of color, but demand that only a person of color need apply. Racism is racism, regardless of the advertised purpose.
Don’t go all logical on us.
Remember leftist read these threads.
Nyet, just a sign that she is willing to put a person of color in that position for optics.
Chief Red Jackass of her own tribe?
This lunatic lefty better choose a Native American!!! Cowabunga!
What I always found utterly insulting about it is that “people of color” aren’t “people”.
They are different than people. I mean if you say “Black” that’s a person. But “people of color” immediately creates a divide with the word “people”.
We have to stop saying “African American” because most black families in the US trace their heritage through the Creole islands, and not Africa. National identity to express skin color obviously doesn’t work for the African white. Are Libyans “African Americans”? Egyptians ? Arabs ?
No? Ok, guess what ? The term “African American” was designed not to identify a person, it was designed to separate a person into another group because of their skin color.
Caucasian works the same way. I have one Caucasian friend. He traces his lineage back to the Caucus mountains.
The whole thing makes me sick. When the left says that we on the right are racist and somehow the echo chamber kicks in and before you know it - BAM - up is down.
Apparently none of the Irish, Polish, Italian and German applicants had any colors.
If she names a NA, she’ll be accused of playing favorites. Tee hee, all that Indian princess stuff just eliminated every NA from ever being on her payroll.
