The left has largely ignored or condemned the story of Elizabeth Warren's dishonest dealings with her heritage back in the day at Harvard. But, as more information comes forward, or is rediscovered, it is increasingly clear that Warren wasn't the only culprit. The environment at Harvard at the time (1993) pushed people, especially white women, to consider using any questionable additional asset they could find to compete in the diversity wars.
New information (in the Warren-Cherokee story anyway) is now reported that Warren was actually criticized for the failing of being only a "white woman" in early 1993, when her tenure offer was made. While many students were in favor of Warren getting tenure at Harvard Law, more critical voices attacked her selection by Harvard as being typical of the safe choices Harvard had made in the past, which did not sincerely address diversity issues.
Shortly after this, Warren was featured as a "woman of color" in the 1993 Harvard journal for women law students.
