President Claudine Gay recently outlawed the likeness of Santa around Harvard's campus as the red outfit reflected "a complete lack of empathy for this nation's Comanche Community. It's pretty obvious that Mr. Claus has appropriated Native American Culture...well not on my watch!"
Embattled Harvard Prez Created A Task Force To Decrease Visibility Of White Men On Campus

Embattled Harvard University President Claudine Gay reportedly put together a task force after the death of George Floyd, with its stated goal being to diminish the number of white men who were visible in campus spaces.
Chris Rufo reported on the task force, sharing his article with a post on X: “Harvard’s Claudine Gay led a task force to reduce the visual presence of ‘white men’ in campus spaces—simply for being white men. They committed no crimes; they were not deemed ‘racist.’ Their ancestry and anatomy were enough to justify their banishment.”
As Rufo stated in the article, Gay responded to the death of George Floyd and the cultural reaction to it by commissioning a task force in order to tackle the “historical reckoning with racial injustice.”
Among the recommendations passed down by the task force was a call to change the decor in some university spaces, primarily in “spaces whose visual culture is dominated by homogenous portraiture of white men.”
That call was directed specifically toward Annenberg Hall, where apparently all but three of the 23 portraits hung featured white men — and none were women. The task force reportedly did not mention whose portraits were on display there, making it clear that what mattered was “their race and sex alone” rather than who they were or anything they had accomplished or done for the university.
Gay has found herself — and particularly her tenure at Harvard — under the microscope in recent weeks following her testimony before Congress, where she struggled to condemn the anti-semitic protests and calls for Jewish genocide that had taken place on her own campus.
Despite numerous calls for her ouster — based on both her testimony and reports that she had plagiarized sections of her dissertation, “Taking Charge: Black Electoral Success and the Redefinition of American Policies” — Harvard’s highest governing body has opted to stand by Gay.
“As members of the Harvard Corporation, we today reaffirm our support for President Gay’s continued leadership of Harvard University,” eleven of the board’s twelve members (Gay is the twelfth) said in a statement. “Our extensive deliberations affirm our confidence that President Gay is the right leader to help our community heal and to address the very serious societal issues we are facing.”
