Elizabeth Warren reportedly benefited from her claims of being a Native American when she applied for a position at Harvard.
According to Politico, 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.
In 1996, the Harvard Crimson reported that spokesperson for Harvard Law School, Mike Chmura said Elizabeth Warren is Native American.
Warren has professed that she never discuses her ancestry with Harvard, she had no idea the school was billing her as Native American and that it never came up during her hiring.
Whoever, it recently came to light that she identified herself as “Native American” on her Texas Bar registration form.
Warren has claimed to be Native American for many years and no doubt has used it to her benefit.
Warren recently took a DNA test to prove her ancestry, but the test only proves she has no more Native American in her blood than most Americans. Even at that, recent tests used DNA samples from Mexico, Peru and Colombia to compare against and that is rejected by Native Americans because it dose not distinguish between North and South America.
Now Warren says she has “zero” sympathy when it comes to the celebrity parents involved in bribing administration and testing officials in an effort to get their children into top universities.

Warren quickly responded when asked about the college cheating scandal and appeared to lack any self awareness by doing so, as pointed out by Dan Bongino.
