When asked Sunday whether she’d agree to calls for genetic testing to resolve the heritage controversy, Warren launched into a family history, as purportedly told by her parents and grandparents, before saying, “It’s a part of who I am, and no one’s ever going to take that away.”
Warren, who is seeking a second Senate term this year, has been accused of saying she is of Native American heritage to help in securing jobs, including one as a Harvard law professor.
She has acknowledged identifying as a minority, but denies using such status to help advance her career.
Every time I see Ms. Warren these days I think of this kid I knew in college, a nice kid, but as white bread as could be, with as white bread a last name as one could possibly imagine, with extreme social advantage, who probably got into my college at least in part because he claimed “hispanic” ancestry. (His mom was from Latin America.) And he talked about it openly. This sort of thing probably happens all the time.
