To the Editor: On the Suspension of the PSC

We write to take issue with the Editorial Board’s Tues., April 23 staff editorial titled “By Suspending the Palestine Solidarity Committee, Harvard Guarantees Chaos.”

To the Editor: On the Attack on Professor Cross

It is time to stop the weaponization of the footnote.

To the Editor: On the Op-Ed Attacking My Character

I was surprised and disappointed that The Crimson chose to publish the op-ed from Jeff M.A. Hauser ’95 last week attacking my integrity without reaching out to me to check facts or context with me.

To The Editor: On Jewish Spaces and Bike Lanes

A collection of letters recently submitted in response to Harvard Crimson content.

To The Editor: On The Harvard Corporation and Ken Griffin

I have confidence in the business backgrounds of the Corporation’s members and take heart in the stable composition of the Corporation, which ensures steady governance for the University.

To The Editor: On Antisemitism, Plagiarism, and Claudine Gay

A collection of letters to the editor regarding The Crimson's news and editorial coverage of recent campus turmoil around Claudine Gay's resignation.

To The Editor: Context Cannot Become Collateral Damage

Our ability to recognize the truth and confront lies is all we have. It is why I joined The Crimson. It is why I feel the need to critique when we fall below the journalistic standards I know we are capable of reaching.

To The Editor: Don’t Platform Stefanik’s Inflammatory Press Release

The Editorial Board once described Stefanik as set on a “relentless pursuit of political influence at a glaring cost to morality” and “the worst we could be.” We would do well to heed our own advice.

To the Editor: What is a ‘Violent Lie?’

As the two unnamed speakers quoted in the article — speakers whose statements are explicitly compared to  “violent, violent lies” — we feel the need to ask the obvious question: What is a lie?

To the Editor: We Must Challenge Hyper-Selective Admissions

The hard truth, for all of us who have enjoyed the benefits of a Harvard education, is that Harvard’s exclusive admissions policies have always bolstered white supremacy and economic inequality. To truly address the harm we have caused, we must challenge the practice of hyper-selective admission itself.

To the Editor: Sharing the Experiences and Perspectives of Professor Schrag's Former Students and Postdocs

As Professor Daniel P. Schrag’s former students and postdoctoral researchers, we believe whole-heartedly that his scientific mentorship, professional guidance, and personal support have been essential to our careers. We further believe that the Crimson article published on April 28, 2023 fails to fully and accurately represent Professor Schrag’s outstanding legacy of scientific mentorship.

An Open Letter from 45 Black Student Organizations and Supporters

We assert that Black students should not have to live in fear of the police force being used as a weapon against them. We condemn the University’s failure to, at large, protect its Black community’s emotional and physical wellbeing in the aftermath of such trauma. We demand that the University take action to repair the manifestations of the inaction and to ensure that the victims of the phone call are served justice, the safety of Black Harvard students is maintained, and that in future incidents, the mistakes from this situation are not repeated.

To the Editor: Crimson’s Anti-Israel Bias Spills Into a News Article

Sprinkling the word “allegedly” into a sentence is not some kind of potion that magically provides a pretense of journalistic objectivity in an article that otherwise unskeptically parrots unsubstantiated claims around Roth’s fellowship. It is better journalism to say who is making the allegation, to check whether they have any evidence to support the claim, and to provide additional, alternative points of view.

To the Editor: When Will You Stop Silencing Palestine?

This is exactly why The Crimson’s silence is so ironic. Even in its outrage over a matter of suppression of free speech because of outspokenness in support of Palestinian liberation, The Crimson has managed to paper over Palestine.

To the Editor: Kenneth Roth’s Claims Are Irresponsible and Warrant Scrutiny

I am troubled by the persistent use of clichéd antisemitic dog whistles and canards in Roth’s claims surrounding his rescinded fellowship. I would have expected the so-called “godfather” of human rights to be more cautious about perpetuating harmful antisemitic myths and conspiracy theories. One need not have a Ph.D. in Human Rights to recognize the dog whistles Roth continues to amplify.

To the Editor: No More Student Government Clickbait

It is critical that The Crimson use its platform to share balanced and accurate information about student government with its readers. Prior to the collapse of the previous student government system, headlines regularly mentioned the types of projects the organization discussed and voted on. Today, that is the exception rather than the norm — and it isn’t due to a lack of initiatives.

To the Editor: Let Us Eat Bacon

As an undergraduate member of the Student Labor Action Movement, I am writing in response to your “Let Them Eat Toast” editorial from November 14th, which had some criticisms of SLAM and unionized HUDS workers’ campaign for hot breakfast.

Harvard Law School Affiliates Call for Redistribution of Potential Loan Repayment Program Savings

Almost 200 current and former Harvard Law School students signed onto a letter last week calling on the school to redistribute any savings it receives from President Joe Biden’s loan forgiveness program to alumni in low-paying jobs.

To the Editor: On Mischaracterizations of My Words

In her opinion piece, Natalie L. Kahn whitewashes Israel’s apartheid regime and misrepresents both the BDS movement and my personal views.

To the Editor: In Opposition to the BDS Editorial

As Jewish alumni from the Harvard/Radcliffe College Class of 1971, we write to voice our dismay with The Crimson’s editorial support for the Palestine Solidarity Committee’s mission and its endorsement of the campaign for Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions.
