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.”
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.
