Carol Swain criticized Harvard University for allegedly allowing Harvard President Claudine Gay to plagiarize her work without proper attribution.

Swain expressed how this alleged plagiarism has harmed her and academia as a whole, particularly in the area where her research is considered seminal.

She also highlighted the alleged instances of plagiarism in Gay’s dissertation and criticized Harvard for standing by her, suggesting that it reflects a system that holds minorities of high pedigree to a lower standard. (Trending: Ousted Democrat Who Filmed Explicit Tape Blames Homophobia)

“Ms. Gay’s damage to me is aggravated because her early work was in the area where my research is considered seminal,” Swain wrote.

“Her scholarship on black congressional representation, electoral districting and descriptive representation builds on terrain where I plowed the ground.”

“When scholars aren’t cited adequately or their work is ignored, it harms them because academic stature is determined by how often other researchers cite your work,” she added.

“Ms. Gay had no problem riding on the coattails of people whose work she used without proper attribution.”

“In a world where the privilege of diversity is king, Ms. Gay was able to parlay mediocre research into tenure and administrative advancement at what was once considered a world-class university,” Swain wrote.

“Harvard can’t condemn Ms. Gay because she is the product of an elite system that holds minorities of high pedigree to a lower standard.”

“This harms academia as a whole, and it demeans Americans, of all races, who had to work for everything they earned.”

Swain stated that Gay’s alleged plagiarism and her testimony before Congress on anti-Semitism are a “low point for American higher education.”

She additionally blasted Harvard for trying to “redefine plagiarism so that it can retain its first ever black president – who was clearly promoted based on diversity, equity, and inclusion standards.”
