The latest big flap on Boston news is that Harvard supposedly listed Warren as a minority professor. She has at least one Cherokee ancestor that we know of so far. And the point of her ctitics is?

Unfortunately, she seems to have said that she did not know Harvard was promoting her as a minority professor and that seems untrue. I wish she had just said that she was proud of her Cherokee ancestor, instead of seeming like this is something to hide.
