Here’s How

In a Spectator World article about President Gay of Harvard, the subtitle asks the key question:

How to get away with plagiarism at Harvard? 
I suppose there are several answers, but her answer is probably the best. Major in Victim Studies, and be a member of the victim group studied. 

While there, take advantage of what Bush II called “the soft bigotry of low expectations.”  Be certain no one will check your work for plagiarism as doing so would be raaaacist.

Gay may very well have been capable of doing the work properly, but now the default assumption is that she either wasn’t capable or didn’t accept the legitimacy of academic norms as valid. Either answer is disqualifying for the job she now holds.
