“My first initial reaction was this is like a gut punch”
Shouldn’t it be easy to identify the senders of these messages? This incident happened back in December.
The College Fix reports:
Harvard Law students irate officials didn’t respond ‘properly’ to racist texts, emails
A quartet of Harvard Law School students is miffed that school administrators did not “take meaningful action” regarding a series a racist and sexist text messages that were sent to them dating back to December.
The messages, “which included racist taunts and insults about female students’ physical appearances,” were sent to a “small group” of first-year law students, according to The Crimson. The students took the matter to administration after “reaching out to faculty members and filing police reports.”
Mohamed “Mo” T. Light received a message which stated he’d only been accepted to Harvard due to affirmative action. “My first initial reaction was this is like a gut punch,” he said.
Christina Volcy, another message recipient, said those affected have been “aghast” at officials’ “just unfeeling and just inappropriate” reactions. Volcy managed to arrange a meeting with Law School Dean Marcia Sells; following that, however, the school’s investigation “did not sufficiently address the incident,” she claims.
Dean Sells said in an email statement that the Harvard Police Department has worked with an “outside law firm” to investigate the messages, but thus far with no results.
