Harvard Law Dean Denounces ‘Okay to Be White’ Stickers on Campus

Harvard Law School Dean of Students Marcia L. Sells has condemned the posting of “It’s okay to be white” stickers on the university campus, calling them divisive and “a provocation.”
According to reports, at least 20 handmade stickers bearing the message “It’s okay to be white” were posted on light poles and electrical boxes around Cambridge Common and Harvard Square as well as at Harvard’s Wasserstein and Hastings Halls last week, provoking consternation from university officials.

In an email message, Dean Sells said that the content of the stickers was “intended to divide us from one another.”

“HLS [Harvard Law School] will not let that happen here. We live, work, teach, and learn together in a community that is stronger, better, and deeper because of our diversity and because we encourage open, respectful, and constructive discourse.”

On receiving reports about the stickers, Cambridge Police instructed the Department of Public Works to remove them and public works employees were seen diligently removing the offending stickers by scraping them off with a putty knife. Most of the stickers were apparently removed within hours after they were discovered. full story
