Valerie Jarrett Ethnicity?

Valerie Jarrett told "Good Morning America's" Robin Roberts today. "All coming together and working with him and his economic team to see if we can come up with some new, fresh ideas to help jumpstart the economy."
She was refering to Obama. She's a nice looking woman.

Valarie Jarrett has neither Iranian ethnicity or heritage. She was born in Iran because her American father was there on a mission to help developing countries. Neither of her parents are Iranian and she was raised in America.

Chicago businesswoman Valerie Jarrett has earned all sorts of nicknames as an aide to President-elect Barack Obama from "First Friend" to "big sister" to "the other half of Obama's brain." As co-chair of his transition team, Jarrett has spent the past week denying rumors, parsing policy changes and insisting that she doesn't know where she'll end up in the new administration (although Beltway gossip suggests she may be appointed to Obama's seat in the Senate). Of her relationship with the 44th commander-in-chief, Jarrett says simply: "He is my dear friend. I would do anything the President of the United States asked me to do."

Her great-grandfather was the first African-American to graduate from MIT. Her grandfather was the first African American to head the Chicago Housing Authority and her father, Dr. James Bowman, a specialist in hematology and pathology, became the first black resident at Chicago's St. Luke's Hospital.
