Bay State Banner Talks Passing and Clearly Invisible

During the first debate, Sen. Scott Brown accused his Democratic challenger, Elizabeth Warren, of misleading the public about her race. “Professor Warren claimed that she was a Native American, a person of color, and as you can see, she is not,” Brown said. “That being said, she checked the box … I don’t know, and the viewers don’t know, if she got ahead as a result of that checking of the box. The only way we’ll find out is to have her release her personnel records, have Harvard release her personnel [records] to make sure she did not have an advantage that others were entitled to.”

Love from The White House, Valerie Jarrett

Dear Marcia:
Thank you very much for sending me the book entitled, Clearly Invisible: Racial Passing and the Color of Cultural Identity. I truly appreciate the thoughtful gesture. Clearly Invisible is a thought provoking analysis of racial and cultural identities that challenges the way we view race and culture in our society. Your accomplishments and drive to make our country a better place to live are a true inspiration.

Valerie B. Jarrett
Senior Advisor to the President
