Freedom to choose: Pocahontas/ Elizabeth Warren can now “self identify” as “person of color” at Brown University. Be the minority you want to be?
Brown University has announced a change to their application process that will allow applicants to “self-identify” as a person of color.
According to The College Fix, the policy is the result of complaints made by Asian-American and international students that they aren’t yet categorized as members of historically underrepresented groups. Historically, Brown has restricted minority status to “American Indian, Alaskan Native, African American, Hispanic or Latinx and Native Hawaiian and/or Pacific Islander” students.
