1997 Fordham Law article: Elizabeth Warren is Harvard’s “first woman of color”

posted at 4:41 pm on May 15, 2012 by Allahpundit

The most important thing about this story, I think, is that it’s coming not from a conservative blog but from Politico. And it’s coming on the same day that BuzzFeed, which will also never be confused with right-wing media, is posting a list of Warren’s most embarrassing moments from this now weeks-long authenticity charade. She’s become enough of a joke, in other words, that even media outfits that aren’t hostile to her ideology can’t resist snickering.

If only most voters had an attention span of longer than five seconds, I’d think this might really hurt her in the fall.

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).”…

The description of her as a minority is coming from the same person – Chmura – whose comments to the Crimson sparked the original story about her heritage, and Warren’s camp argued it’s old news.

She has said she had no idea Harvard was billing her that way or how the school found out that her family claims Native American heritage. She learned of it first from the Herald story, she said.

Yeah, Chmura was the Crimson’s source in 1996 for the “fact” that Warren was Native American. The big lingering mystery: From whom did he get that information? From those professional directories in the mid-90s in which Warren listed herself as minority? From someone on Harvard Law’s hiring committee? Or from Warren herself?

Meanwhile, per William Jacobson, contain your shock at the fact that the Boston Globe helpfully buried its correction about Warren’s apparently nonexistent 1/32 heritage after trumpeting the original genealogical claim as proof that she was right. The Boston Herald isn’t as forgiving:

The New England Historical Genealogical Society, which originally announced they found evidence of Elizabeth Warren’s Native American heritage, said today they have discovered no documentation to back up claims that she is 1/32 Cherokee.

“NEHGS has not expressed a position on whether Mrs. Warren has Native American ancestry, nor do we possess any primary sources to prove that she is,” said Tom Champoux, spokesman for the NEHGS. “We have no proof that Elizabeth Warren’s great great great grandmother O.C. Sarah Smith either is or is not of Cherokee descent.”

The Herald reported today that an Oklahoma county clerk said a document purporting to prove Warren’s Cherokee roots does not exist. ReJeania Zmek, the Logan County Clerk, said there are no marriage applications from 1894 — despite claims from a Warren family newsletter and NEHGS genealogist Chris Child that indicated otherwise.

Hopefully we can now lay this distraction to rest and get back to the real issues of whether Mitt Romney was a bully 50 years ago or whether he put his dog in a kennel on his car roof in the early ’80s. Exit question via Jacobson: Did Warren really cite “Pow Wow Chow” as additional proof of her ancestry? Come. On.

But can she spell MassachusettEs?

Seriously though, I hope the voters in that state aren’t insane enough to actually send this woman to the Senate. I know Blumenidiot won in Connecticut after lying about serving in Vietnam, but at least you could sort of explain away his win because he was running against the wife of Vince McMahon(even though she did run a very good campaign). But there’s no excuse here. Scott Brown is a sitting Senator. He’s a known commodity. And he’s a bonafide left-leaning Republican.

Doughboy on May 15, 2012 at 4:48 PM

If only most voters had an attention span of longer than five seconds, I’d think this might really hurt her in the fall.

Since it has become readily apparent to anyone who isn’t Horse Face McFraudster that she financially benefited from this fraud, isn’t there a potential criminal liability here? Wouldn’t that be the last moccasin to drop, thus killing her campaign entirely?

Well, white is a color, after all. Were all of Harvard’s professors translucent prior to that auspicious date?

And for the Boston Glob [sic] to print a correction on this matter on any page is tantamount to running up the white flag.

Put a fork in her, she’s scalped.

Lots of horrified Leftists at the Politico link desperately trying to hijack the Comment Thread. One guy is even claiming with a straight face that Teddy Kennedy didn’t kill Mary Jo Kopechne.

Ted Kennedy killed a girl over and over again? You mean he resurrected her, and then killed her again, and then repeated that? I know, I know, I’m kinda kidding. Just sorta tired of the Mary Jo stuff over and over. He didn’t kill her by the way, he didn’t save her, but he didn’t kill her. They were in an accident – he lived, she died. Kinda like Laura Bush when she killed that guy (there’s the difference, Laura Bush was driving a car that crashed into a person and that person died. Her actions directly caused his death. Not murder, but she still killed a guy.).

Minds are terrible things to Waste.

The cookbook was called “Pow Wow Chow,” and was edited and published by Warren’s cousin.

But you didn’t do so on your own – you did it with help from the PC enforcers, and you did it with help from minority pimping community.

Shouldn’t you have to ‘give back’ to the community that helped you out?

GarandFan on May 15, 2012 at 5:05 PM

I watched a documentary last night on the presidency of Andrew Jackson. It briefly touched on his forced relocation and movement of the Native American tribes. If the people of Massachusetts were fully aware of what Ms. Warren’s great-great-great grandpappy participated in along the “Trail of Tears”, I have a feeling she’d get those feathers she apparently craved. Along with a side of tar for good measure.

“Intersectionality and positionality: Situating women of color in the affirmative action dialogue.”

You cant make this stuff up. Elizabeth Warren is a fraud. Higher education has become 80% fraud. It’s in great need of a severe fundamental transformation.

forest on May 15, 2012 at 5:06 PM

One of the clips Brietbart was setting up on video before his passing, which was shown a couple weeks later (vetting Obama) was a rally at Harvard with Obama holding the megaphone, and the issue at that exact time was not enough minority faculty at Harvard Law.

I think that Elizabeth Warren has a pretty large war chest of cash leftover if she drops out. Nebulous, non purposeful cash, which is not taxed by anyone. Although in MA, i believe they tax the interest.

Fleuries on May 15, 2012 at 5:06 PM

And to think that all they had to do was go check with the beer drinking Harvard prof named Gates who is an expert on roots (I saw that he had a TV show on Pubic TV about roots). That should make him the final answer on this controversy.

My great great great great grandfather married a pure Cherokee
My great great great grandmother’s people were ashamed of me

[CHORUS:]
Halfone thirtysecond-breed, that’s all I ever heard
Halfone thirtysecond-breed, how I learned to hate the word
Halfone thirtysecond-breed, she’s no good they warned
Both sides were against me since the day I was born

Her theme song.

That’s it in a nutshell. And there are many more out there like her. This was all the rage in the 1990s all across the country. It was the only way whitey could get a tenure track job.

Dack Thrombosis on May 15, 2012 at 5:07 PM

Why isn’t someone hounding Harvard Law as to who knew what and when regarding her hiring and tenure?

Starlink on May 15, 2012 at 4:48 PM

The person to ask is Elizabeth Warren’s husband, Bruce Mann, who coincidently is a Professor at Harvard Law School.

Elizabeth Warren listed herself in a law school directory as a minority 1986 – 1995.

Coincidently, both Elizabeth Warren and her husband Bruce Mann were both hired at the University of Pennsylvania in 1987.

Bruce Mann had the academic credentials to make the move to the Ivy League since he had degrees from Yale and Brown Universities.

Elizabeth Warren, on the other hand, needed some additional help, since her degree was from Rutgers Law School.

Elizabeth must have been afraid that her Ivy League colleagues would discriminate against a job applicant who did not have an Ivy League degree.

Just like Harvard, The University of Pennsylvania has also promoted Elizabeth Warren’s minority status.

It is Bruce Mann and the University of Pennsylvania that should be asked what they knew about Elizabeth’s minority status when she was hired for her first Ivy League job.

Now who will be the first Reporter to follow up on this lead?

There’s a real review from 2003, Graham Crackers and Velveeta – traditional Native American staples from yonder!

No doubt, there are some tasty recipes in this book, but I bought it originally because I was interested in Native American cuisine. Perhaps it shouldn’t suprise us that a book published by the “Five Civilized Tribes” would have such minimal connection to traditional cooking. Many of the recipes call for cream cheese, graham crackers, velveeta, mayonnaise, etc. But otherwise the recipes are tasty, I admit

White is a color!

The definition of Liberal is Fraud. And liberals don’t care. They will vote for a proven fraud, and actually defend it.

Hillary Clinton “came under sniper fire” in Bosnia. Secretary of State for the United States of America.

John Kerry spent “Christmas 1968 in Cambodia”. United States Senator for the State of Massachusetts.

Richard Blumenthal “served in Viet Nam”. United States Senator for the State of Connecticut.

Joseph Biden admitted to committing plagiarism in college and while campaigning. Vice-President of the United States of America.

Elizabeth Warren’s fraud is the Rule, not the exception for democratics.

Romney may have cut some guy’s hair in high school.

And I can’t stand the term “of color” regardless of how fake Warren is. It’s inherently racist. A crude attempt to isolate and pit everyone in the world against white people. It’s sick.

I refer to myself as that all the time…I’m a mixed breed, don’t claim either side predominately. Also, a lot of black women refer to themselves the same way. And before you give me the “they also call each other the ‘n’ word”, I would like to point out that a lot of these women use this title to the press.
