Prestigious Harvard Fellowship Excludes White Applicants
We are living in an era of extreme political polarization, with the far-Left embracing racism and discrimination in the United States. A prime example of this is Harvard University’s recent internship program, which bars white applicants from applying.
McLean Hospital, a psychiatric teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, has been offering a 10-week research program since 2021, which is exclusively open to “Black, Indigenous, and underrepresented people of color.” The program offers participants a $7,000 stipend and places them in prestigious labs.
This kind of discrimination is illegal under the Civil Rights Act of 1866 and Title VI, which bans race discrimination by federally funded entities. But Harvard is pushing forward with its discriminatory policies, and their employees are running the program.
“At a minimum, it looks like Harvard is facilitating McLean’s race-based system,” said Jonathan Berry, a partner at Boyden Gray & Associates.
This isn’t an isolated incident either. The University of North Carolina Chapel Hill has at least five scholarships, fellowships, and other initiatives that are available only to minorities. Even after a discrimination complaint, a sixth initiative, exclusively for “BIPOC” students, was made available to all races.
It’s time to speak out against this racism and discrimination. We should all be able to compete on a level playing field, regardless of the color of our skin. The far-Left’s embrace of racism is wrong and potentially illegal. We should not tolerate such blatant discrimination, and it’s time to do something about it.
We must encourage the Supreme Court to make their ruling in the Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvard case and put an end to affirmative action. We must also stand up for our rights and make sure that everyone is treated equally, regardless of their race.
If the courts follow their usual review process, they should review the case of affirmative action sometime this spring or summer.
