Harvard Plans on Hosting Segregated Graduations

Harvard's backward DEI logic thinks having separate graduation celebrations is "inclusive." In reality, the woke mob is pushing segregation.

In the halls of academia, we’re witnessing a troubling trend: the rampant spread of DEI—Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Folks like Rep. Burgess Owens hit the nail on the head when they point out that DEI has morphed into a Marxist nightmare, painting society with a broad brush of oppressors versus the oppressed. It is institutions like Harvard, of all places, leading the charge, pushing this DEI agenda to the absurd point of hosting segregated graduations. It’s a far cry from the principles of unity and equality they claim to champion.

Harvard’s leap into the rabbit hole with its so-called “affinity celebrations” is just another example of DEI gone wild. They’re rolling out the red carpet for every group under the sun – Black, Latino, LGBT – segregating graduations as if we’re living in a bygone era. Then, in a knee-jerk reaction to public backlash, they begrudgingly add a Jewish celebration to the mix. This isn’t unity; it’s division, pure and simple. Harvard’s playing a dangerous game, slicing up the student body by identity, and it’s about as far from true inclusivity as you can get.

What we’re witnessing across the academic landscape is a dangerous pivot towards an ideology that prioritizes racial, ethnic, and religious identities over individual character and accomplishments. This is not merely about creating spaces for celebration; it’s about fostering a culture of division under the guise of inclusivity. Such practices not only perpetuate a sense of otherness but also undermine the very foundations of moral reasoning and justice.

The implications of adopting such a DEI framework are profound and far-reaching. By endorsing discrimination when it suits a particular narrative, and by excusing reprehensible actions based on an actor’s perceived status of oppression, academia is treading on perilous ground. The logic that underpins these DEI initiatives is fundamentally flawed and morally bankrupt. It suggests that discrimination is acceptable, even commendable, if it’s directed at the ‘right’ targets. This is a slippery slope, one that can lead to justifying violence and terrorism as forms of resistance if carried out by those deemed oppressed.

In conclusion, the crisis in academia requires immediate attention and action. The principles of DEI, as currently implemented, are dividing rather than uniting us. They’re compromising our ability to engage in ethical reasoning and to recognize the intrinsic worth of every individual, irrespective of their racial, ethnic, or religious background. If left unchecked, this ideology will continue to erode the fabric of our educational institutions and society at large.
