Marc Lamont Hill, a presidential professor at CUNY Graduate Center, has asserted that Harvard University’s next president should be a black woman.
“The next president of Harvard University MUST be a Black woman,” he tweeted.
The school will need to tap someone to fill the role, as Claudine Gay, who was Harvard’s first black president, announced that she is resigning from the post. She noted in a resignation letter that she will “now return to the faculty, and to the scholarship and teaching that are the lifeblood of what we do.”
People replied to Hill by suggesting black women on the political right.
In response to someone who mentioned conservative commentator Candace Owens, Hill wrote, “This is the problem. Y’all really think Black people are interchangeable.”
Others mentioned Carol Swain. “So you’d support @carolmswain for president?” Delano Squires, a contributor to BlazeTV’s “Fearless with Jason Whitlock,” tweeted.
Someone else shared a photo of Virginia Lt. Gov. Winsome Sears holding a gun. “Your terms are acceptable,” the tweet read.
Chaya Raichik, the woman behind Libs of TikTok, mocked Hill by tweeting, “This is not inclusive enough, bigot. The next President of Harvard should be a Latinx nonbinary agender trisexual furry. That would be true diversity.”
“And not just any black woman! She must be short. And one-legged. And in the process of transitioning to be a man. Academic credentials entirely optional. This is #DEI,” Dinesh D’Souza mocked.
