Harvard President Claudine Gay Accused of “Disrupting” Black Male Scholars, Claims Former Professor

Harvard President Under Fire for Various Allegations

Harvard President Claudine Gay has been under intense scrutiny due to a series of controversies. The most recent incident was her controversial testimony in front of the House Education Committee, where she failed to condemn students on campus calling for the genocide of Jews. This has led to mounting pressure for her resignation.

Aside from the congressional testimony, allegations have also surfaced about potential academic misconduct, as it is reported that Gay may have plagiarized her PhD thesis, which could be a violation of Harvard’s academic code of ethics. Additionally, it was claimed that Gay refused to share her research with two professors who questioned a data method she used in a 2001 Stanford paper.

Furthermore, Winkfield Twyman Jr., a former law school professor and Harvard graduate, accused Gay of targeting and disrupting the careers of prominent black male scholars. In an op-ed for Newsweek, he emphasized that the recent criticisms against Gay are “well deserved” and not racially motivated, as some have argued.

Twyman highlighted specific instances where Gay allegedly targeted black scholars, such as the termination of Ronald S. Sullivan, Jr. as Faculty Dean of the Winthrop House for representing Harvey Weinstein, and the treatment of economics professor Roland G. Fryer, Jr., who faced repercussions despite his distinguished accomplishments.

Twyman argued that defending Gay solely because she is the first black president of Harvard is not justifiable, given her actions against black scholars. These allegations have sparked a significant backlash and have intensified the calls for Gay’s resignation.

The controversies surrounding Gay have ignited discussions about accountability and ethics within the academic community. It remains to be seen how Harvard will address and navigate these allegations, and whether there will be significant repercussions for the embattled university president.
