Harvard Apologizes for Social Justice Placemats that Equated Islamophobia with Refugee Concerns

Well, at least they apologized instead of condemning the outrage.

Harvard Dean of Student Life Stephen Lassoed and Dean of Freshmen Thomas Dingman have released an apology for the “Holiday Placemat for Social Justice” distributed in Harvard dining halls earlier this week.

Campus Reform originally reported the story after the Office for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion at Harvard College confirmed the placemats were distributed in undergraduate dining halls. According to a campus representative, the placemats were created to help students facilitate what they deem to be difficult conversations when they return home to their families.
