Faux Indian Elizabeth Warren Slams Academia for Lack of Diversity


That cheeky faux Indian, Elizabeth Warren, speaking at a faux war on women seminar, said she wants colleges to hire more minority women. She did not say if she wants more faux minorities such as herself or real minorities or both.

Washington Examiner: …Elizabeth Warren, the Democratic U.S. Senate candidate under fire recently for claiming to be Native American, knocked “the academic world” for lacking diversity in the workplace.

“Let me put it politely: there was never a line in the ladies’ room,” Warren said at Netroots Nation 2012 convention during a panel about the “war on women” in Congress. She said that was true of her corporate and political experience, not just the academic environment. “That’s what gives you the real determination to make the kind of change that we need to make.”

Warren listed herself as Native American, despite a lack of evidence for that heritage, early in her legal career. “When she was hired, Harvard Law School had just denied tenure to a female teacher and was being criticized for not having enough minorities and women on its faculty,” The Washington Examiner’s Michael Barone said in a wry note on the issue. “Of course Harvard and Warren say her claim to minority status had nothing to do with her being hired. And if it did, no one is going to say so.”..

The next generation of Americans will put Blacks, Asians, and Hispanics in the majority, but I wonder if that figure includes faux minorities.
