Harvard just proved why it is one of the most idiotic schools in the country.
According to reports, Harvard will allow 125 black students to attend an all-black graduation.
In order to make it happen, the black students raised $27,000 to cover the costs of the ceremony.
These same students will also be attending their normal graduation ceremony.
“This is an opportunity to celebrate Harvard’s black excellence and black brilliance,” said Michael Huggins, soon to graduate with a master’s in public policy from the Harvard Kennedy School. “It’s an event where we can see each other and our parents and family can see us as a collective, whole group. A community.”
“This is not about segregation,” Huggins added. “It’s about fellowship and building a community. This is a chance to reaffirm for each other that we enter the work world with a network of supporters standing with us. We are all partners.”
Courtney Woods, who is soon to hold a master’s degree in education policy and management, explained the situation.
“Harvard’s institutional foundation is in direct conflict with the needs of black students. There is a legacy of slavery, epistemic racism and colonization at Harvard, which was an institution founded to train rising imperialist leaders. This is a history that we are reclaiming.”
“It speaks volumes that there has never been a black graduation ceremony until now. We created this from scratch, because for me, for many of us, we are not here alone,” she added. “I carry with me the dreams and desires of my family. And as a first-generation, I know I am here to change the trajectory for all of us.”
One problem, you don’t solve racism with more racism and segregation. This is a case of taking three steps backward for every step forward.
