More BS: Boston Globe Insists Harvard Did Not Hire Pocahontas Warren Because She Was Indian — But Listed Her as First “Woman of Color”
The Boston Globe ran defense for far left Democrat Elizabeth Warren this weekend. The far left rag insisted that Harvard University never considered Warren as Native American in their hiring process.
The Boston Globe reported they came to this conclusion after analysis from several interviews and university documents.
FOX News reported:
Although critics have charged that Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., has advanced her career with a narrative that she is a distant descendant of Cherokee and Delaware tribes, Harvard University never considered her ethnicity when it hired her as a law professor, according to a report Saturday.
The Boston Globe reported interviews and documents showed that the issue was not considered by Harvard Law faculty when it considered her application in the 1990s.
The report also saw no consideration of her race when she applied to work at Rutgers, the University of Houston, the University of Texas or the University of Pennsylvania.
“She was not on the radar screen at all in terms of a racial minority hire,” Randall Kennedy, a law professor who was in charge of recruiting minority candidates to Harvard Law School, told the Globe. “It was just not an issue. I can’t remember anybody ever mentioning her in this context.”
Neither Harvard nor Warren immediately returned Fox News’ requests for comment Sunday.
The Globe noted that Warren listed herself as a “minority” before Penn offered her a job. However, the law school’s dean and affirmative action officer wrote in a 1987 equal opportunity compliance statement form that Warren was the best candidate for her job despite being “white.”
Warren and her campaign continue to push back hard against the claims that she was rewarded a job at Harvard after lying about her so-called Native Indian heritage.
UPDATE— In 1996 the Harvard Crimson identified Elizabeth Warren as a woman of color and Native American.
In 1998 Harvard bragged Elizabeth Warren, “who is Native American”, was their only minority tenured woman on staff.
Hat Tip Chris
A 1997 article in the Fordham Law Review described Warren as a Harvard law school’s “first woman of color.”
The Politico reported:
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).”
Harvard sure made a big deal about Warren’s Indian heritage for today insisting it was not a factor in her hiring process.
Obviously, Democrats are hoping to clean up Warren’s many lies about her heritage and high cheekbones before the 2020 election comes around.

“The report noted that three years after she took the Penn job, she asked the university to change her listed ethnicity to “Native American.” A 2005 university publication noting a teaching award that she won a decade earlier listed her as a minority.” https://t.co/eCcdJmAXVd
