Harvard Lied (Re Warren), Real Indians Cried

An update on Sacaja-Warren, buried in the ‘Metro’ section of the Boston Globe:


Filings add to questions on Warren’s ethnic claims

By Mary Carmichael
May 25, 2012

US Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren has said she was unaware that Harvard Law School had been promoting her purported Native American heritage until she read about it in a newspaper several weeks ago.

But for at least six straight years during Warren’s tenure, Harvard University reported in federally mandated diversity statistics that it had a Native American woman in its senior ranks at the law school.

Of course the real crime here is that we even have such “federally mandated diversity statistics.”

According to both Harvard officials and federal guidelines, those statistics are almost always based on the way employees describe themselves.

Sort of like the way the bios that publishers send around about their authors are almost always based on the way the authors describe themselves. Such as being born in Kenya.

In addition, both Harvard’s guidelines and federal regulations for the statistics lay out a specific definition of Native American that Warren does not meet.

The definition is simply whether you have high cheekbones or not? That’s weird.

The documents suggest for the first time that either Warren or a Harvard administrator classified her repeatedly as Native American in papers prepared for the government in a way that apparently did not adhere to federal diversity guidelines. They raise further questions about Warren’s statements that she was unaware Harvard was promoting her as Native American

How much further can these questions be raised? She is obviously a liar.

The US Department of Labor requires large employers to collect diversity statistics annually and suggests they be based on employees’ classification of themselves. In cases in which employees do not self-identify, federal regulations allow some administrators to make judgment calls on the correct categories using “employment records or observer identification.’’

The administrator responsible for Harvard Law School’s faculty diversity statistics from 1996 to 2004, the period in question, was Alan Ray, a citizen of the Cherokee Nation who, like Warren, has fair skin, blue eyes, and Oklahoma roots

What an amazing co-incidence! Apparently, birds of a feather like to flock together.

The Harvard document defines Native American as “a person having origins in any of the original peoples of North America and who maintains cultural identification through tribal affiliation or community recognition.’’ It notes that this definition is consistent with federal regulations.

It is not a definition Warren appears to fit. She has not proven she has a Native American ancestor, instead saying she based her belief on family lore, and she has no official tribal affiliation. The current executive director of Harvard’s Native American program has said she has no memory of Warren participating in any of its activities

Racist pickers of nits!

  1. why did the havard law indian wear a jockstrap??

    totem pole.

  2. BigOil

    One might think squaw named Running Mouth of the big government tribe would be in heap big trouble – if she did not raise her tepee in MA.

  3. Astravogel

    According to family lore, I’m related to Pontius
    Pilate, because we wash our hands frequently.

    Warren listed herself as a Native American in the Association of American Law Schools directory of law professors, from 1986 to 1995. The Brown campaign and the Native American Rights Fund questioned her motives for the claim and its propriety.

    Obama wrote how his grandmother from Oklahoma would point to her nose as evidence she was Native Indian. See my nose? See my nose? she would tell him.

      oops. above was on wikipedia along with this:

      Warren appeared in the documentary film Maxed Out in 2006, has appeared several times on Dr. Phil to talk about money and families, has been a guest on The Daily Show,[18] is interviewed frequently on cable news networks,[19] appears in Michael Moore’s Capitalism: A Love Story, has appeared on the Charlie Rose talk show,[20] and has appeared on the Real Time With Bill Maher talk show.[21] She has also appeared on the PBS show NOW.[22]

      WORSE she makes fun of Oklahomans on wikipedia:

      Speaking to a podcast of Massachusetts bloggers, when asked about being derided by opponents for being from Oklahoma and on the other hand spending the past seventeen years teaching at Harvard, Warren said, “I’m a new category, an elite hick.” She also joked, “I’m going for the hick vote here, I just want you to know. Maybe we could start wearing stickers that say ‘Hicks for Elizabeth’ – could we do that?”[42]

      what a beech.

      The second paragraph is best I recollect that part in book. Obama also wrote that his grandfather was a habitual liar and would tell tourists on Hawaii beach that Obama was son or grandson of some Hawaii King. He wrote his grandmother was always telling him (Obama) that his grandfather lied all the time.
      I’m sure this rubbed off on Obama, who lied in school that his father was King of Africa or something like that. He sure sweat that one out when Obama Sr. spoke at his school. He got satisfaction that Coretta the little black girl he threw on the ground appeared to be interested. Just his imagination. She was probably looking at his father intently trying to see some sign of why Barry was such a male bully pig.

      I see no high cheek bones in any of her pictures. Plus, she is too tall. I think perhaps they should make sure she doesn’t own any oil wells or free land.

      “I’m a new category, an elite hick.”

      Well she’s half right.

      And 1/32 wrong.

      “Good riddance,” says Oklahoma. Massachusetts deserves her.

      By the way, what’s the feminine form for Bolshevik thug? thugess? thugette? thugesque?

    • Mithrandir

      I always found it strange that people like this must claim, “I AM 1/32 INDIAN!” –yeah, so? What about the 31/32 of you that ISN’T?

      It’s white guilt. And people like this are ashamed of themselves, and want others to be ashamed of themselves. And their thinking and policies reflect this self-racist attitude. (*racism: the belief that your race is superior to others. However, what is it if you think your race is INferior to others?)

      It’s all just a small piece of the mosaic that makes up liberalism. People that take it one piece at a time, and claim the evidence doesn’t add up. Well, it doesn’t. But 100s of pieces do add up, and the smart people can put it together.

    Could somebody please tell me the difference between, mandated diversity and so-called profiling? America really needs to know.

    • Anonymoose

      It’s like how if someone is gay they’re supposed to be born that way and can never change, but if they’re straight then their sexuality can always change, how there are ex-Republicans but never ex-Democrats, or how racists are only white. It’s all a smokescreen to what they consider “right.”

  6. Mithrandir

    TYPICAL WHITE PEOPLE (To quote Obama)

    1. Either Warren lied about her heritage, to take advantage of the racist Affirmative Action system, and avoid the discrimination of her own liberal policies,

    or

    2. Harvard lied, because liberals always back-scratch each other, and simply found a way around the obstacles that the common folk would have to endure.

    Either way, the bottom line harks back to my saying about liberals, “Rules and standards are for OTHER people to follow.”

  7. wirenut

    Here’s my take on it. Affirmative Action “is” racial profiling at it’s worst. Those that premote this garbage, seldom suffer from it. No, no, it’s not to be exploited. Diversity, is a fact, not a virtue.
