Claudine Gay Blames Racism

Turns out there is a limit to what even Harvard can pass off as excellence on behalf of Cultural Marxism — or as proponents currently call it, diversity/equity/inclusion. Affirmative action hire Claudine Gay was such a conspicuous disaster that even though Harvard at first circled the wagons around her, she was finally forced to walk the plank:

Gay, the president of Harvard University, resigned from her position on Tuesday after just six months in the role. Gay has recently come under sharp public scrutiny over her handling of antisemitism on campus since the start of the Israel-Hamas war, as well as accusations of plagiarism in some of her past academic writings. She announced her decision to resign in a letter addressed to the Harvard community.

This comes in the wake of her getting hit with six new plagiarism charges.

That Claudine Gay was made president only for purposes of identity politics could not be more obvious:

Gay’s plagiarism is one indication among others that she had a lackluster record. Gay published no books and just 11 papers in 20 years. Last week, a journalist at Substack reported that after two professors questioned a method she used in a 2001 paper because of its “logical inconsistencies,” Gay refused to share her data with them. Gay’s academic record is far below Harvard’s normal standards for both professors and presidents.

Even the little bit she published she did not necessarily write:

Gay has been hit with nearly 50 allegations of plagiarism affecting eight of her 17 published works.

Gay topped this off by saying that calling for the genocide of Jews can be okay depending on context — i.e., depending on whether the call is made on behalf of people viewed as less white than Jews.

As with Kamala Harris, Ketanji Brown Jackson, and Karine Jean-Pierre, that Gay is the best left-wing black woman our moonbat overlords could find for the job does not make left-wing black women look good.

Absurdly yet predictably, despite having exploited racial favoritism to climb to a position for which she is clearly unqualified, Gay squawks that she is the victim of racism:

Gay painted herself as a victim, suggesting she found it frightening “to be subjected to personal attacks and threats fueled by racial animus.”

Here’s her resignation letter:

Eight score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we (metaphorically) stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Black and LGBTQIA2S+ slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. …

But 160 years later, I see no changes. All I see is racist faces. Misplaced hate makes disgrace to races. …

When my brief presidency is remembered, I hope it will be seen as a moment of reawakening to the importance of striving to find our common humanity—and of not allowing rancor and vituperation to undermine the vital process of education. I promise to never give you up, to never let you down, to never run around and desert you. To never make you cry, never say goodbye, or tell a lie and hurt you. After my picture fades, and darkness has turned to gray, watching through windows, you’re wondering if I’m okay. If you’re lost you can look and you will find me, time after time.

No wait, that was a parody. Hard to tell the difference with a moonbat as cartoonish as Claudine Gay. Here’s the real resignation letter:

Another esteemed countermoonbat is not so glad to see her go:

It’s important to Harvard that its brand survive Claudine Gay. It’s important to America that it doesn’t.

Gay was arguably performing a constructive service by keeping a klieg light trained on the absurdity of DEI.

Harvard and academia will try to claim the problem is over. In fact, they’ll claim there never was a problem, she was singled out because she is a black woman. …

Rearranging administrative chairs on a sinking ship is not the answer.

Havard and other Ivy League schools need to jettison not just their Presidents, but the DEI industrial complex…

The pervasive rot that is moonbattery will not be purged with a single resignation. That task may take generations. The Ivy League is unlikely to survive it.
