Should Harvard’s President Get A Pass on Plagiarism?

via CNBC Television

Harvard President Claudine Gay faced scrutiny after a controversial testimony and allegations of academic dishonesty.

The university’s support for her has raised questions about double standards and the influence of her identity as the first Black president.

Conservative outlets broke the news, prompting discussions about identity politics and the source of the allegations. (Trending: Democrat Found Guilty In Corruption Trial)

Symone Sanders Townsend, former chief spokesperson and senior adviser to Kamala Harris, wrote, “Conservative activists are claiming the first Black president in Harvard’s 387 year history is an affirmative action hire & actually not qualified for the job. Folks…Black women do not get jobs only white men have ever had by being mediocre and unqualified. Not happening.”

Derrick Johnson, the president and CEO of the NAACP, wrote, “Enough is enough. @Harvard President Claudine Gay is a distinguished scholar and professor with decades of service in higher education.”

“The recent attacks on her leadership are nothing more than political theatrics advancing a white supremacist agenda,” he continued.

Critics emphasize the importance of focusing on the truth of the allegations rather than their origins.

Harvard Law School professor, Charles Fried, said, “It’s part of this extreme right-wing attack on elite institutions. The obvious point is to make it look as if there is this ‘woke’ double standard at elite institutions.”

“If it came from some other quarter, I might be granting it some credence. But not from these people,” added Fried.
