Revealed: UPenn report listed Elizabeth Warren as minority too

posted at 8:01 pm on May 10, 2012 by Allahpundit

I don’t know, there might be an innocent explanation. Maybe they’re counting people whose ancestors rounded up Native Americans as “minorities” too?

Remember, according to Warren, she never told the schools that employed her that she was Native American. That was something she reserved for those independent faculty directories. And yet:

According to Penn’s 2005 “Minority Equity Report,” it too identified Warren, who taught there from 1987 to 1995, as a minority.

On page 16 of the report, the now-Massachusetts Senate candidate is listed as a winner of the school’s Lindback Award in 1994. Unlike other names listed, though, her name is italicized and bolded to indicate her status as a minority faculty member…

[A] Penn professor previously provided a statement saying that Warren did not receive any benefits based on her heritage.

“Her appointment was based on the excellence of her scholarship and teaching,” said Stephen Burbank, who was acting dean of Penn’s law school in 1995. “I do not know whether members of the faculty were even aware of her ancestry, but I am confident that it played not role whatsoever in her appointment.”

There is, potentially, a kinda sorta “innocent” explanation here. Could be that Penn, in preparing its 2005 report on minority hiring, simply went through those old faculty manuals and stumbled upon Warren’s name. She listed herself as a minority in those from 1986 to 1995, so if they pulled out the 1994 edition to see where their Lindback Award winner was listed that year, they would have come away thinking that she was indeed minority. But of course, if that’s what happened, it undercuts Warren’s claim that she never told her employers about her background. Evidently, she didn’t need to. They might have been consulting the manuals all along, including in their hiring decisions.

But wait, there’s more:

Meanwhile, the Globe has also obtained a portion of Warren’s 1973 application to Rutgers, where she attended law school. That document specifically asks: “Are you interested in applying for admission under the Program for Minority Group Students?” Warren answered “no.”

In addition, a newly unearthed University of Texas personnel document shows that Warren listed herself as “white” when she taught at the law school there from 1981 to 1991…

Warren’s employment document at the University of Texas allowed her to check multiple boxes specifying “the racial category or categories with which you most closely identify.” The options included “American Indian or Alaskan Native,” but she chose only white.

She told reporters initially that she knew she was Native American because it was part of her family lore. Apparently she did zip to try to confirm it with a genealogist before claiming minority status in a professional listing, but never mind that. The point is, apparently from a young age, she believed she was Native American. In which case, why the fluctuations in how she listed herself as an adult? She’s “white” in 1973 at Rutgers, still “white” in 1981 at U of T, then suddenly minority in 1986 for those professional directories, then suddenly white again in 1995 when she stopped listing herself that way. Good lord. She’s had more politically calculated flip-flops on this subject over a multi-decade timeline than Barack Obama’s had on gay marriage.

Update: Tom Maguire looks at the big picture:

We are constantly told that having a diverse faculty (or workforce, or student body) provides faculty and students with fresh perspectives and valuable role models. How that works when no one is aware of the role modeling opportunities on offer remains a mystery. Just who at Harvard is taking inspiration from the Mystery Native American lurking in the shadows there? Who at U Penn is drawing strength from the news that if Elizabeth Warren can overcome her minority status, whatever it was, so can they?

I take it her campaign’s going to claim that the Rutgers and Texas applications prove that she wasn’t using her heritage to gain any advantage. But if that’s so, why not? She supports affirmative action, presumably. If her minority status grants her some unique cultural perspective or has disadvantaged her somehow, why isn’t it a legit scholastic criterion in her eyes? And if it doesn’t/isn’t, why bother claiming that status in the first place?

“white” in 1973 at Rutgers, still “white” in 1981 at U of T, then suddenly minority in 1986 for those professional directories, then suddenly white again in 1995 when she stopped listing herself that way.

She had good enough grades to get into Rutgers Law (Ivy League would apparently have been too much of a stretch for her), so she didn’t need affirmative action then.

But once she was teaching, and decided she wanted to make the jump to the Ivy League, her credentials would not have been good enough. But as a “Native American,” her ethnicity counted more than credentials.

Once she got her foot in the Ivy League door, she again wanted to be judged on professional accomplishments, so she dropped the diversity scam.

She used it to gain an advantage when she needed one, and didn’t use it when she wanted to be seen as succeeding on her own efforts, not because of some diversity program.

It was a simple self-advancing calculation.

Allahpundit,

Forgive the librarian speaking, but when you write “manuals” I think you really mean “directories.” Manuals are how-to books; directories are lists of people or things with brief information and location (e.g. phone books). Warren listed herself as Native American in several faculty directories.

I think this looks very bad for her. However, I wondered if she might have been classified as a minority by virtue of being female rather than having claimed some tenuous link to Native American heritage. So I followed the link to the Washington Post and then to University of Pennsylvania to read the report. The report only dealt with racial/ethnic minority status – not gender. Her name is listed on the bottom of page 16 with the bold & italicized font. Other clearly female names on the same page are not in bold or italicized font. Reading through the report there’s only 1 person in the category of Native American. They never label her personally as being a member of that minority group, but with what we know now it’s not hard to figure it out.

There’s almost no Native Americans reported in comparison to the numbers of African Americans, Latino/Hispanic Americans, and Asian/Pacific Islander Americans. So if it’s a numbers game, the universities must have been delighted to have someone on staff who claimed to be of Native American descent.

In my opinion, Dr. Warren claimed racial/ethnic minority status when it suited her and could be an advantage in the hiring process. Perhaps it merely helped her get the interviews, and she sold herself from there. The universities will never admit if it played a role in the hiring decisions.

It looks like Warren’s family can’t resist exploiting Cherokees in one form or another.

Daddy didn’t like what the white man said
‘Bout the dirty little kid at his side
Daddy didn’t like what the white man did
Nor the deal or the way that he lied
There was blood on the floor of the government store
When the men took his daddy away
And the boy stayed back till he come to his end
And he run like the wind from Cherokee Bend.

Let us hope that this country never decides to do something as stupid as to go down the reparations road. What a clusterfvck that would be! Everyone would be a descendant of someone affected by slavery, i.e., slaves, slaveowners, carpetbaggers, Confederate soldiers, freemen, Yankee soldiers, farmers (who had their farms destroyed during the war), Northern widows and children, etc.

We are constantly told that having a diverse faculty (or workforce, or student body) provides faculty and students with fresh perspectives and valuable role models.

Role models? Does achieving diversity include lying about one’s heritage? Here’s “fresh perspective”, admit that you used the system falsely to obtain a status not deserved, and resign from politics.

The University of Pennsylvania is apparently as incompetent as Harvard when it comes to verifying information on employee applications.

When a pale, blue-eyed blond, with low cheek bones claims to be a Cherokee, one would think the university might be smart enough to verify her minority status.

Sounds like people at Harvard and Penn aren’t as smart as they tell us they are.

How does the University of Pennsylvania explain their lack of curiosity?

I don’t like the practice of calling Amerindians (or whatever term one wishes) “Native Americans” because it suggests everyone else who is native of America is an occupier (or descendents of occupiers), thereby assigning non-Indians a morally inferior position and less of a claim to the land. Since we all came out of Africa (or is the theory now Asia?), are we all “Native Africans”? At some point the constant obsession with one’s ethnic history becomes ridiculous.
