Harvard’s Next President Finds a Teaching Moment Even Before Taking Office

February 19, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

The Crimson columnist complained that Mr. Bacow “does not understand, first-hand, what it means to be reduced to your gender or the color of your skin.”

And there, precisely, is encapsulated the irony of the situation. The vanguard of the anti-racism, anti-sexism movement on campus looks at an individual chosen for a job and can’t see past his skin color or his gender. If Mr. Bacow didn’t “understand, first-hand” what it means to be reduced to gender or skin color before he was chosen for this job, he sure does now, because it appears to be the only thing, or the main thing, that his critics can see about him.

Had those critics bothered to look beyond appearances, they might see someone who introduced himself to the university in a YouTube video as the son of two Jewish refugees.

A Tale of Two Memos: Mulvaney, Nunes Missives Both Press Rule of Law

“America is open for business, and we are competitive once again.” That was just one of the key lines in President Trump’s highly successful Davos speech this week.

Of course, in going to Davos, Mr. Trump entered the lion’s den. A year ago such a visit would have been a poor idea. Back then, elitist heads of state, the European Union bureaucrats, and the international chief executives were uniformly against Donald Trump.

But Mr. Trump’s 2018 Davos strategy was a brilliant stroke.
