Elizabeth Warren Claimed Her Race Was 'American Indian' On Bar Registration to Get Minority Status

Elizabeth Warren claimed her race was "American Indian" on a registration card for the State Bar of Texas in 1986, The Washington Post has found through an open records request.

From The Washington Post:
Using an open records request during a general inquiry, for example, The Post obtained Warren’s registration card for the State Bar of Texas, providing a previously undisclosed example of Warren identifying as an “American Indian.”

[...]Warren filled out the card after being admitted to the Texas bar. Warren was doing legal work on the side, but nothing that required bar admission in the state, according to her campaign.

The date coincided with her first listing as a “minority” by the Association of American Law Schools. Warren reported herself as minority in the directory every year starting in 1986 — when AALS first included a list of minority law professors — to 1995, when her name dropped off the list.

Warren also had her ethnicity changed from white to Native American in December 1989 while working at the University of Pennsylvania. The change came two years after she was hired there.

Several months after Warren started working at Harvard Law School in 1995, she okayed listing her ethnicity as Native American. Harvard listed Warren as Native American in its federal affirmative action forms from 1995 to 2004, records show.
One of the funny things about "white privilege" is how supposedly "privileged" white people fight to get minority status in order to help their careers.

There was a great story from CNN back in 1997 on an Egyptian immigrant who has been fighting for ages to be reclassified as "black" instead of "white" in order to advance his career opportunities and gain a host of benefits.

He's still fighting to be reclassified as black to this very day!
