Official says his email was ‘misrepresented,’ but it’s rather vague

Yale University is trying to explain its intentions when it took down portraits of white men who served as head of a residential college ahead of a Halloween party.

Stephen Davis, the current head of Pierson College, claims that an email he sent to students last week has been “misrepresented” as saying the white men’s portraits would not be put back up in the dining hall.

Davis ignored two separate requests this week to provide the email he sent students before giving The College Fix a copy of the message after this article was published.

The Yale Daily News has also not answered a Fix query on whether its Monday report was incorrect or whether Davis asked “the nation’s oldest college daily newspaper” to subtly change its reporting in an article Wednesday.

‘Abundance of images of white men around campus’

The implication of Monday’s report by the News was that the white men’s portraits were being removed permanently from Pierson’s dining hall because they weren’t diverse enough.

They were taken down “in preparation for” Pierson’s annual Halloween party, known as Inferno, but Davis only told students Nov. 1 that unlike previous years, they “will not be remounted,” the News said, paraphrasing the Davis email.

They will gladly take Whitey’s money and then trash him.

This is a serious mental illness, but certain elements in our society are rewarding it.

Somehow, I doubt that Yale or any other universities will be refusing to accept any donations from white men “in the name of diversity”.

And you wonder why black students are not seen as being people who earned their way into schools like Yale and Harvard?

Noway these schools are accepting black students on merit when they promote such racial politics.

And I doubt they’ll be firing all the white men who keep the finances, physical plant, and other logistics of Yale functioning.

To promote diversity for the sake of diversity is racism.

It is basically treating a person of a particular skin tone differently because of it.

Why not photoshop the portraits and make them all black?

They can photoshop history and punish the deniers who don’t play along.

Used to be they had to add blacks for diversity.

Now they have to remove white men to make it diverse?

Did you see that little sleight of hand there? Barely noticeable. Just slipped the white guys right on out of there.

Where's the "diversity" if there are no white men on the walls?
