Dr. Swain to Newsmax: Harvard's Gay Should 'Step Down'

By    |   Monday, 18 December 2023 09:00 PM EST

Dr. Carol Swain, author of "Black Faces, Black Interests: The Representation of African Americans in Congress," the work of which Harvard President Claudine Gay allegedly plagiarized, told Newsmax on Monday that Gay should step down.

Swain tells "The Record with Greta Van Susteren" that if she could speak with Gay, she would "tell her to step down for the sake of Harvard.

"Because if you love your alma mater," Swain continues, "and it's been good to you, and clearly Harvard has been very good to her — Harvard has loved her — that the right thing to do is step down."

"And as far as me, I have no personal animus towards her at all, because I blamed the system that made it possible. There were lots of other people that would have had to have been complicit."

On Sunday, The Wall Street Journal published an op-ed by Swain, where she writes that "Ms. Gay's work wouldn't normally have earned tenure in the Ivy League."

"Tenure at a top-tier institution normally demands ground-breaking originality; her work displays none. In a world where the privilege of diversity is king, Ms. Gay was able to parlay mediocre research into tenure and administrative advancement at what was once considered a world-class university."

"Harvard can't condemn Ms. Gay," she adds, "because she is the product of an elite system that holds minorities of high pedigree to a lower standard. This harms academia as a whole, and it demeans Americans, of all races, who had to work for everything they earned."
