“aggravating race discrimination and injury”
You have to wonder how these professors would react if the campus of Harvard was burning and being looted right now.

As rioters destroy cities, Harvard profs condemn Trump’s ‘rhetoric of domestic terrorism’
A group of Harvard Law School faculty members released a letter denouncing President Donald Trump’s actions, which they say “endorse violence.” The letter claims that Trump retains too much federal power and is too irresponsible to be president.
Trump recently tweeted “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.” By using the word “shooting,” Harvard states that Trump “incites private violence” and promotes others “to take similarly destructive action.” Making comparisons between modern times and the Civil Rights Era, they say Trump’s “statement pledged violent state action against those who protest race-based injustices.”
They claim that, in this tweet, Trump “undermines our democratic order” by offering military support to states amidst the violent riots.
His willingness “to use federal authority in ways that breach fundamental principles of our governance” often results in “aggravating race discrimination and injury.”
Trump’s previous tweets praising the Secret Service’s work of protecting the White House with “the most vicious dogs, and most ominous weapons” are deemed by Harvard as examples of Trump welcoming “the use of excessive force.” He has instigated divisions among people based upon “race, political party, ideology, and national origin,” the professors say, while favoring a “violent reaction” from his supporters.
