letters | warren’s native american heritage revisited

Stop trying to denigrate Senate hopeful with this side issue

In last Sunday’s Globe, you spent nearly two pages on the Native American heritage that Elizabeth Warren does or does not have (“Warren’s extended family split about heritage,” Page A1): Why? Who cares? According to the university hiring committees, her possible Native American heritage made no difference in their choosing her for their faculties. They chose her for the quality of her scholarship and her outstanding teaching abilities.

In the last decades of the 20th century, law schools, in particular, needed to hire more qualified women to diversify their faculties. Warren is a recognized expert in bankruptcy law and commercial law, and a demanding teacher loved by her students. That’s why she was so sought after. Why are you trying to denigrate her abilities with this side issue?
