Warren Confesses: Told Harvard She Was 'Woman of Color'
Breitbart.com ^ | 5/31/12 | Michael Patrick Leahy

Last night, Elizabeth Warren finally admitted to the Boston Globe that she lied when she made previous statements that she had “no idea” why Harvard Law School referred to her as a “woman of color.” Ms. Warren confessed that she told Harvard Law School when she was hired as a Visiting Professor in 1992 that she was a “woman of color.”

Ms. Warren’s shocking revelation, after weeks of stonewalling and denying her complicity in Harvard’s numerous false public statements about her heritage, reverberated through a formerly friendly mainstream media this morning.

The Globe’s story acknowledged that Breitbart News' reporting led the way:

The Harvard records show the law school began to report a Native American woman for the academic year 1992-93. The Native American woman did not appear anywhere in the statistics for 1993-1994 or 1994-1995. During those years, Warren was back at the University of Pennsylvania, having rejected Harvard’s first attempt in February 1993 to court her for a tenured position.

This whole Warren dust-up is really a demonstration of the silliness of Affirmative Action and Political Correctness.

That a person can get fast-tracked into an elite school or into the working world because of a molecule of a suggestion of a certain ethnic group, and not on the basis of ability, is foolishness on a grand scale.

If Harvard hired her because she is a woman of color, how many paleface did they bypass?

It just proves she wasn’t hired because of her intelligence. Her opponent should hammer that home.

How does a person go about proving ones ethnicity to get preferential treatment?
Birth Records? Color of skin? Last name? Accent?

White is a color..........

Strictly speaking, in the general context of the visible electromagnetic spectrum, white is sum of all colors while black is the absence on any color. Single wavelength have a specific, narrowly defined color. The summation of different wavelengths is a (mixed) color.

All the more ironic for "the people of color." Whites are all-encompassing-colored while blacks are non-colored. Oh my.

If I hear Fauxauhantas go on one more time about “How American families are getting hammered”...

Hammered? I thought she said "tomahawked."

Actually white isn’t a color, it is the absence of color. Her lie doesn’t even work there.
