Harvard Students Call for New Multicultural Center Claiming They Feel Excluded

Harvard Students Call for New Multicultural Center Claiming They Feel Excluded

“I don’t really feel comfortable or welcome at a lot of the cultural organizations that already exist”

Harvard bends over backwards to make sure all students feel welcome on campus but it’s still not enough.

The College Fix reports:

Harvard students renew call for campus ‘multicultural’ center

Students at Harvard are agitating for a campus “multicultural center” due in part to the alleged exclusivity and inadequacy of the school’s current identity-based organizations.

A town hall held last month, hosted by the Undergraduate Council and Multicultural Center Coalition, saw several students offering justifications for the new center ranging from “I don’t really feel comfortable or welcome at a lot of the cultural organizations that already exist” to “I think cultural organizations can sometimes be unintentionally excluding people,” according to a report in The Harvard Crimson.

According to The Crimson, the moderators of the town hall—student government representatives Nicholas Whittaker and Salma Abdelrahman—presented a proposal from the student government’s Multicultural Center Coalition.

That proposal included a “call for research into the history of minority communities and intercommunal relations at Harvard, in addition to looking at models of multicultural centers at other universities…The research will identify more specifically the current problem that exists and recommend whether a multicultural space comprises the most effective course of action.”

The uncomfortable have plenty of colleges to pick from where their comfort level may be just fine: Grambling, Fisk, Morehouse, or just about any taxpayer-funded campus in California.

Then again, they can try and see Harvard as an American institution and try to fit in to our educational institutions, which they should be grateful to have the opportunity to learn from what our civilization has accumulated.

Then again, they can always build their own schools, and teach their own curriculum, and feel as comfortable as they want.

Dear Harvard Uncomfortable … the purpose of a “cultural” organization that is not multicultural in nature … is to exclude other cultures. Your Harvard education is a waste of money and effort … you’re all as dumb as a box of rocks and will remain that way.
