Leo Terrell: Firing Harvard’s Claudine Gay Wouldn’t Be Racist, Keeping Her Would Be

Civil rights lawyer Leo Terrell shared his thoughts on the ongoing drama surrounding Harvard President Dr. Claudine Gay.

“Firing Dr. Claudine Gay is not Racist. Keeping her as Harvard President is Racist!”

Gay has been under the microscope after she and other college presidents testified before Congress to address reported anti-Semitic protests at their colleges.

In our view, much of the modern anti-Semitism is also based on anti-White racism additionally, just a note other pundits appear to be afraid to say.

Gay is the only college president who will keep her position after the embarrassing and notorious testimonies before Congress.

Gay is also the only black female who testified before Congress, and she is notably Harvard’s first woman of color to lead the school.

Clearly, Terrell sees Harvard’s inaction as racist on those grounds.

Since the hearing, it has also been made public that Gay allegedly plagiarized works she submitted to the college while attaining her doctorate.

Harvard has however chosen to use softer language calling the plagiarism “duplicative language without proper attribution,” as they appear desperate to hold on to their Black female president.

Harvard revealed this week that Gay will be making further corrections to the paper she wrote to earn her doctorate from the college.

Harvard’s refusal to hold Gay to a standard required of others shows how far they will go to keep a “woke” woman of color at the top.

The statements that put Gay in the hot seat were her answers to Congresswoman Elise Stefanik’s (R-NY) question, “At Harvard, does calling for the genocide of Jews violate Harvard’s rules of bullying and harassment?”

Gay replied, “It can be, depending on the context.”

When further pressed Gay shared, “Antisemitic speech when it crosses into conduct that amounts to bullying, harassment, intimidation — that is actionable conduct and we do take action.”

It appears that Harvard will keep Gay, and it doesn’t seem to matter that Gay failed to be ethical in her papers that earned her the title of Dr. or her indifference to the protests on her campus.

Many decent Americans are indeed anti-foreign war interventionists, but a lot of these rallies appear like BLM rallies in disguise to many.

The topic of the war in Israel is a very contentious one indeed following the most recent Hamas attacks and then questions of ethical response.
