In what will surely be yet another surprise to Elizabeth Warren, the Boston Globe reports that the U Penn Law School also touted Ms. Warren as a minority when she was there.
To compound the hilarity, U Penn is also concealing her specific minority status. So, just as Harvard claims to have a Native American on the law school faculty but won't say who it is, U Penn is also playing "spot the role model".
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?
Well. The Supreme Court will tackle affirmative action this fall, Democrats will howl, and Elizabeth Warren will be hard pressed to avoid addressing this. The Comedy Channel is arranging coverage now.
