“I am tired of Harvard using my story without giving me ethnic studies so I can fully understand what my story even means.”
Students at Harvard have every advantage in the world. They have access to pretty much anything they want to study and faculty members to go with it. This protest is ridiculous.
The College Fix reports:
In ongoing Ethnic Studies controversy, Harvard students occupy building for second time in two weeks
Students at Harvard University staged a protest this week demanding the creation of a new ethnic studies department, the second time in as many weeks that campus activists have “occupied” a building to spread their message.
Last week Harvard protesters occupied University Hall for roughly an hour to protest the university’s having denied tenure to Lorgia García Peña, a language professor at the university. Protesters also “called on Harvard to establish an Ethnic Studies department offering Ph.D.s in Ethnic Studies and concentrations and secondary fields in Native American and Indigenous Studies, Latinx Studies, Asian American Studies, Muslim American Studies, and Comparative Race and Ethnic Studies.”
This week, The Harvard Crimson reports, protesters once again occupied a campus building, this time the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid. Students reportedly protested with slogans such as “After you admit us don’t forget us” and “Want diversity? Teach our histories!”
The Crimson said one student “criticized Harvard for simultaneously ‘tokenizing’ students of color while denying them access to diverse curricula and faculty mentors.” That student declared at the event: “I am tired of Harvard using my story without giving me ethnic studies so I can fully understand what my story even means.”
