Freedom to choose: Pocahontas can now “self identify” as a “person of color” at Brown University

Freedom to choose to be a “person of color” at Brown University.

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.

Comment:  Will Harvard and Penn Universities   follow suit and get  Pocahontas   aka Elizabeth Warren off the hook?   Is  1/32  of American Indian blood  sufficient to be a “person of color”  based on  Senator  Warren’s say so that her mother had “high cheek bones”?
