Elizabeth Warren 1024

Chart of The Day: Following in the Footsteps of Elizabeth Warren, White College Students Lie About Their Race

Remember the story of Elizabeth Warren and her claims of being Native American? Warren changed her ethnicity from “white” to “Native American” both at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, where she taught from 1987 to 1995, and at Harvard Law School, where she had tenure starting in 1995.

Warren eventually released her DNA test results showing “strong evidence” that she has Native American ancestry. The analysis suggested she is descended from an American Indian between six to ten generations ago, making her between 1/64th and 1/1024th Native American. Warren received much ridicule for her claims, forcing her to back peddle. See the video below.

It seems to be a trend, here is another one more recent. Public health expert Carrie Bourassa, a total fraud, was the scientific director of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research’s Institute of Indigenous Peoples’ Health, She was suspended on Nov. 1, just five days after the CBC revealed the truth.

It turns out Warrens’ antics have many following in her footsteps. Every year, they are aspiring college students who complete admissions applications with the hopes that their grades, extracurriculars, and recommendations will lift them above the pack and earn them acceptance at the school of their choice. However, some college applicants misrepresent their race to use their desired school’s diversity efforts to gain admission or obtain more financial aid.

Intelligent.com asked 1,250 white college applicants ages 16 and older if they lied on their application by indicating they were a racial minority. The number one reason applicants faked minority status is to improve their chances of getting accepted (81%). Fifty percent also lied to benefit from minority-focused financial aid. Here are the culprits by gender.

Gender College Applications Claiming Minority Status

Nearly half of all respondents who lied about their minority status (48%) identified themselves as Native American on their applications. Thirteen percent claimed to be Latino, 10% claimed to be Black, and 9% claimed to be Asian or Pacific Islander. One supposes it is easier from an appearance perspective to be Native American, and being first on a land seems to carry the most weight nowadays.

Race College Applications Claiming Minority Status

Seventy-seven percent of people who claimed to be a racial minority on their applications were accepted by the colleges to which they lied. While other factors may have played a role in their acceptance, most applicants who lied and were accepted (85%) believe that falsifying their racial minority status helped them secure college admission.

Aside from the morality of lying on a college application, which is never a good idea, it is clear that if it worked for Elizabeth Warren, why wouldn’t it work for others. I’ve never recently met so many Native Americans – there everywhere now.

If “White Privilege” is so prevalent, why all the lying? Perhaps “White Privilege” is a myth after all.

  1. Are colleges going to start DNA testing to prove/disprove applicants’ true race? If a person feels the need to lie about his race to gain acceptance into a college, it’s the wrong college for that person. If what pushes the student over the line is his race, he belongs at a college with less rigorous admission standards. Beside, it’s not where you go to college that matters; it’s what you do with your education that does.

    • My son didn’t lie on his applications for grad school. He is 4.0. Has great undergrad experience. Extracurricular Was captain of football team receiving distinguished awards for good sportsmanship and a National black Lion for excellent team building. He was a a rugby captain also. He has been on many mission trips from Watts to Navajos to Inner city help. He has an excellent resume but was rejected at the nine schools he applied. All his white friends were rejected also. I have no doubt if he would have been accepted at every one if he lied. I’m tempted to experiment to test this. But our integrity is more valuable. He was accepted at his current college. There are not choices in highly specialized science to go to a conservative or merit based admission school.

  2. if they claim to have lied on their application – what makes you think they didn’t lie on your survey ?

    lying on a federal form (FAFSA) comes with legal consequences … lying on a survey does not.

Born down on the farm in America's Midwest, my early life was spent climbing the ladder via a long career in information technology. Starting as a technician, and after earning a degree going to night school, I eventually found a place working at ATT Bell Laboratories as a software engineer.

Later moving into management and then a long stint in a major management consulting firm working with major banking, telecommunications, and retail companies. Working in various states in America, I also spent considerable time living and working in several European countries - currently expat in France. As a side career, I was heavily involved in real estate development and an avid futures trader. This experience can give one a unique view of the world.

The storm clouds of dark change are near. Today America is at a crossroads. Will it maintain its prowess as a national leader in the free modern advancing world, or will it backtrack in the abyss of the envy identity politics of tyrannical socialism, and the loss of individual freedoms. The 2020 election may have decided this. Join the Right Wire Report team and make a stand.
