  • A Stand Against Exclusivity (Ban Fraternities, Allow Sororities at Harvard)

    The Harvard Crimson ^ | 9/26 | THE CRIMSON EDITORIAL
    The faculty committee’s recommendation is right on final clubs, but reservations about the process and implementation need to be kept in mindThis past July, a faculty committee released a preliminary report recommending that the College ban students from joining all fraternities, sororities, and similar exclusionary social organizations. The policy would extend to co-ed organizations, and it would replace the existing penalties on members of unrecognized single-gender social organizations. We support this recommendation, and we urge University President Drew G. Faust to do so as well. It importantly expands the discourse beyond issues of gender inequality and sexual assault to the...

    Americans are becoming only too aware of the financial tricks and deceit in which some of the nation's largest and most respected corporations engaged during the Clinton administration to pump up stock prices with fraudulently inflated profits. When the huge bubble no longer could be sustained the men and women at the top would bail out of their stock and pocket millions, leaving pensioners and other investors holding an empty bag. To market insiders these are known as "pump and dumps." While federal investigators are looking into the corporate malfeasance at Enron, WorldCom, Qwest Communications, AOL Time Warner and...
  • Disinvited: Harvard Rescinds Manning's Visiting Fellowship Following Backlash

    09/15/2017 2:17:47 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 32 replies ^ | September 15, 2017 | Matt Vespa
    As Cortney wrote on Thursday, Harvard was embroiled in controversy, as the institution decided to extend a visiting fellowship invitation to convicted felon Chelsea Manning. Manning, who served in Army Intelligence, is responsible for leaking hundreds of thousands of classified materials on the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Upon Manning’s conviction, she was sentenced to 35 years in prison of which she served seven years before President Barack Obama commuted the sentence. The invitation led to the resignation of former CIA Director Michael Morell as a senior fellow. Current CIA Director Mike Pompeo also canceled an event in light of this...

    Facing backlash from high-ranking current and former CIA officials, the Dean of the Kennedy School of Government withdrew an invitation for Chelsea Manning to serve as a visiting fellow at the Institute of Politics in late-night reversal Friday. “I now think that designating Chelsea Manning as a Visiting Fellow was a mistake, for which I accept responsibility,” Kennedy School Dean Douglas W. Elmendorf wrote in a statement posted to the school’s website shortly after midnight. The school withdrew the invitation to Manning—a transgender activist and former U.S. Army soldier who was imprisoned after disclosing over 700,000 classified government documents— after...

    Harvard University has withdrawn the invitation given to Chelsea Manning to be a visiting fellow at the Institute of Politics at Harvard Kennedy School amid intense backlash over the controversial decision. In a statement issued at around midnight Friday, Douglas Elmendorf, dean of Harvard Kennedy School, admitted that naming Manning a visiting fellow for the fall semester was "a mistake." [Snip] "This decision now is not intended as a compromise between competing interest groups but as the correct way for the Kennedy School to emphasize its longstanding approach to visiting speakers while recognizing that the title of Visiting Fellow implies...

    CIA Director Mike Pompeo scrapped his appearance Thursday at Harvard University over the school’s decision to make Chelsea Manning, who was convicted of leaking classified information, a visiting fellow. Pompeo called Manning an “American traitor.” He said he agreed with military and intelligence officials who believe Manning’s leak endangered the lives of CIA personnel. Pompeo was scheduled to appear at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government to discuss allegations of Russian involvement in last year’s presidential election, the nuclear standoff with North Korea and other global security concerns. […] Pompeo, who has a law degree from Harvard, said he didn’t make...

    Harvard University was lambasted Wednesday after it announced former U.S. Army soldier-turned convicted felon Chelsea Manning will be a visiting fellow for Harvard's upcoming academic year -- an appointment that caused former CIA acting director Michael Morell to resign as the school's senior fellow. Manning will take on the role at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, the school said on its website. “She speaks on the social, technological and economic ramifications of Artificial Intelligence,” the announcement said. “As a trans woman, she advocates for queer and transgender rights as @xychelsea on Twitter.” Morell announced on Thursday he will...

    Michelle Jones was released last month after serving more than two decades in an Indiana prison for the murder of her 4-year-old son. The very next day, she arrived at New York University, a promising Ph.D. candidate in American studies. In a breathtaking feat of rehabilitation, Ms. Jones, now 45, became a published scholar of American history while behind bars, and presented her work by videoconference to historians’ conclaves and the Indiana General Assembly. With no internet access and a prison library that hewed toward romance novels, she led a team of inmates that pored through reams of photocopied documents...

    Harvard University announced today that Chelsea Manning will be a visiting fellow at the John F. Kennedy School of Government's Institute of Politics where she'll discuss "issues of LGBTQ identity in the military." According to the IOP website, Manning is "a Washington D.C. based network security expert and former U.S. Army intelligence analyst" who now "advocates for queer and transgender rights" on Twitter. IOP Acting Director Bill Delahunt said in an announcement "We welcome [her] breadth of thought-provoking viewpoints on race, gender, politics and the media," according to a story in Military Times. The former Bradley Manning (before transition from...

    Specifically, they are having a Freaky Friday and demonstrating in the streets, the way students did in the 1960s. "Thirty-one professors from Harvard and other Boston-area universities were arrested Thursday for blocking traffic along Massachusetts Ave. in protest of President Donald Trump's decision to rescind an Obama-era program that gives legal protections to undocumented young people," The Harvard Crimson reported on September 7, 2017. "Professors took to the street outside Johnston Gate in a planned act of civil disobedience, forming a human chain and blocking traffic on Mass Ave. Before the arrests, Cambridge Police officers read a written statement warning...

    RUSH: “Bisexuals 400% More Prevalent In Harvard Freshmen Than General Population.” Why does anybody know? How does anybody know? Well, let’s find out together. It’s a story from The Daily Caller. “Bisexuals are at least 400 percent more prevalent in Harvard University’s incoming class of freshmen than they are in the general population. While approximately 1.8 percent of the general United States population identifies as bisexual, 7.9 percent of Harvard’s Class of 2021 says they are bisexual.” Wait a second. The gay population .6 .5? And the transgender population, I mean, it’s less than one-tenth of 1%. And yet look...
  • Racial Lies and Racism

    Earlier this month, The New York Times ran an article titled "U.S. Rights Unit Shifts to Study Antiwhite Bias" on its front page. The article says that President Donald Trump's Justice Department's civil rights division is going to investigate and sue universities whose affirmative action admissions policies discriminate against white applicants. This is an out-and-out lie. The truth is that the U.S. departments of Justice and Education plan to investigate racial bias in admissions at Harvard and other elite institutions where Asian-Americans are held to far higher standards than other applicants. This type of practice was used during the first...

    Affirmative action is once again in the news. This time because of a leaked Justice Department memo indicating possible action regarding complaints from Asian-American groups that Harvard University is discriminating against Asian-Americans in its admissions policies. As this story was breaking, Harvard released news that, for the first time in history, the majority of its incoming freshman class will not be white. Per the story, 50.8 percent of Harvard's class of 2021 will not be white. Here's Harvard's spokesperson: "To become leaders in our diverse society, students must have the ability to work with people from different backgrounds, life experiences,...

    Twelve years after finishing Harvard’s graduate theater program, Katierose Donohue still pays almost as much in student loans each month — about $650 — as for her share of the rent in Los Angeles. She recently stopped hosting her monthly sketch comedy show, “Ma’am,” because she didn’t always break even on her $200 budget. She’s now working side jobs as a dog walker and a social media copywriter, after past gigs serving at Starbucks and handing out free cigarettes for Camel. She’s never missed a loan payment, but there’s no end in sight: She borrowed nearly $75,000 to attend the...

    A faculty committee at Harvard charged with re-evaluating the University's year-old social group penalties has resulted in a bizarre outcome calling for barring student membership in “fraternities, sororities, and similar organizations." An in-depth report by Harvard's school newspaper, The Crimson, reports that a May 12 vote by the committee on options to deal with social groups resulted in the "ban all social clubs", the most severe option among 10 options, actually came in third in voting by the committee with only 7 out of 27 votes.

For if the Trump administration hopes to enlist an unwilling Beijing to check North Korea’s nuclear...

    I share the same LGBT demographic with the protesters that stood and held up “Fight Transphobia” signs, but they do not speak for me—especially as they infringe upon free speech and expression. Being part of a protected class does not give us the privilege or right to shut down speech just because we do not like what we hear. As a demographic whose cause is founded on tolerance and acceptance, we are hypocritical for supporting PC culture. What the protesters are actually doing is selfish. They are pushing their own agenda in hopes of preventing people, including a female minority...

    I love museums. Historical perspectives enrich our current perspectives…sometimes even change them. Recently, I went to a museum that, literally, touched my soul—Motown Records. I had a little time to explore as I was in Detroit to keynote an event for my nonprofit Radiance Foundation. How could I possibly pass up the opportunity to see where Motown—and so much of the music I love—was birthed back in 1959?The Motown Museum was a potent reminder that giving up was never an option, for founder Berry Gordy or any of his artists—many of whom would become an inseparable part of Americana.

  • Facebook memes mocking child deaths, Holocaust, cost 10 their spots at Harvard

    The students in the spin-off group exchanged memes and images mocking sexual assault, the Holocaust and the deaths of children, sometimes directing jokes at specific ethnic or racial groups, according to screenshots of the chat obtained by the Crimson. One message called the hypothetical hanging of a Mexican child “pińata time.” Other messages quipped that abusing children was sexually arousing. Then, university officials caught on. And in mid-April, after administrators discovered the offensive, racially-charged meme exchanges, at least 10 incoming students who participated in the chat received letters informing them that their offers of admission had been revoked. ...
