Harvard is not an institution of higher learning, it is a social-engineering lab, and a sad specimen at that.
A diploma from Harvard was once a treasured document. Today, I believe a parking ticket is held in higher esteem.
For the first time since its founding in 1636, white students represent a minority in Harvard’s incoming freshman class.
This year was the first that Harvard held a blacks-only graduation ceremony (photo, above), no whites allowed. “One of the graduates who helped plan the blacks-only graduation, Michael Huggins, said, ‘This is an opportunity to celebrate Harvard’s Black excellence and Black brilliance.'”
What would be the reaction if a group of white students planned a whites-only graduation ceremony, no blacks allowed, and declared that it is simply “an opportunity to celebrate Harvard’s White excellence and White brilliance?” Can you even imagine the backlash?
I suppose the powers that be at Harvard won’t be satisfied until no white students at all are accepted.
Racism, in any form, is abhorrent.
From The Washington Times
Harvard University’s incoming freshman class will be unlike any since its founding in 1636 — the majority of students are non-white.
The institution, which has made a concerted effort in recent years to become more diverse, confirmed that 50.8 percent of its class of 2021 are non-white.
“To become leaders in our diverse society, students must have the ability to work with people from different backgrounds, life experiences, and perspectives. Harvard remains committed to enrolling diverse classes of students,” Harvard spokeswoman Rachael Dane said in a statement, The Boston Globe reported Thursday. “Harvard’s admissions process considers each applicant as a whole person, and we review many factors, consistent with the legal standards established by the U.S. Supreme Court.”
Harvard recruiters cast their nets across 150 different U.S. communities to find applicants during their search for viable candidates, the newspaper reported.
Last year’s incoming class was 47.3 percent non-white.
