    I suspect that will start to resurface in this ongoing debacle.

    from your link:


    In the 1990s, when Harvard Law came under fire for having a poor diversity-hiring record and a faculty dominated by white male professors, the school widely publicized Mrs Warren's alleged Native American roots.

    In 1996, school paper the Harvard Crimson quoted a Harvard Law spokesperson saying that 'of 71 current Law School professors and assistant professors, 11 are women, five are black, one is Native American and one is Hispanic.'

    .

    Mrs Warren's camp has not responded to any of the allegations that she has been inflating her ancestry for the benefit of her career.




    i don't see a problem if she states that she has native american heritage ancestry

    (corrected - "heritage" suggests something other than the truth of her upbringing. Better to use the term "ancestry")

    what i (and others - including legitimate native american spokespersons) see as problematic and dishonest is her claim to identify as native american

    I purposefully did not make reference to those bits as I am not confident they are factual.
