Reader comment on item: Harvard's Communist Uprising, 50 Years Later

Submitted by Anon. (Israel), Apr 9, 2019 at 10:13

Recently, a university student (either chinese or of chinese extraction) undressed in class when giving a presentation. This was supposedly done to protest her professor's chastising her choice of clothes.

I get the impression American students imagine the university exists for their sake, that it must cater to them and that the professors must pander to them.

This might be part of the fall-out of the events you describe.
