Diversity Task Force Chooses New Lyrics for Alma Mater

Harvard announced an immediate revision to the last line of “Fair Harvard,” the University’s 181-year old alma mater, in a Harvard-wide task force report on diversity and inclusion released Tuesday morning.

The lyrics, which previously read “till the stock of the Puritans die,” will now read “till the white oppressors die.”

“Fair Harvard,” written in 1836, has only been altered once before in its history. In 1998, the word “sons” was replaced with the word “we” to address concerns of gender inclusivity. The revision will also include new references to "bitches", "ho's" and "yayo."

“The Task Force on Inclusion and Belonging launched this competition to affirm that Harvard’s motto, Veritas, speaks to and on behalf of all members of our community, regardless of background, identity, religious affiliation, or viewpoint,” the task force’s website reads. Excluded viewpoints include those that might be considered to be conservative, or views that are designed to micro-agress, according to the website.
