Fordham Described Elizabeth Warren as Its ‘First Woman of Color’

Brian Preston at PJ Media discussing the work that cites Warren's supposed Cherokee nationhood:
Who on earth would ever read something titled “Intersectionality and positionality: Situating women of color in the affirmative action dialogue”? How can any sane person get past the title? Two of the three words in its opening clause are not, in point of fact, real words. They are hybrids made up to sound smart. They sound like poison gas to anyone not initiated in radical feminism. Which is what they are.
I clicked on the link based on the title but the passage above really got to me.  As per Preston, who on earth talks like this?  I guess if you throw out enough semantic smoke it can be harder for people to notice you're burning intellectual dung.
