The Office for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion at Harvard University distributed what it is calling “Holiday Placemats for Social Justice” on campus to help freshmen students navigate difficult conversations when they return home for Christmas break.
The placemat, a copy of which was obtained by Campus Reform, offers students tips for talking to their family members about controversial topics such as “Black Murders in the Street,” “House Master Title,” and “Islamophobia/Refugees.” The placemat, divided into four possible topics of conversation, provides students with a series of sample questions they may encounter when they return home to their families along with an acceptable response to each question.
The only reason I’m mentioning this is because I am told all the time that I am a product of religious indoctrination who cannot think on my own.
Am I? I can’t recall needing a placement full of State approved acceptable responses to questions my less educated relatives might ask over a family dinner before.
In all seriousness, if one of my kids came home from college with one of these they would be eating Christmas dinner in the garage while frantically searching their placemat for the
acceptabl approved response to, “I’m not paying for you to go back to school.”
