Harvard University does its bit to make Christmas a living Hell for its undergrads.

Please stop doing this.

The Office for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion at Harvard University distributed what it is calling “Holiday Placemats for Social Justice” on campus to help freshmen students navigate difficult conversations when they return home for Christmas break.

The placemat, a copy of which was obtained by Campus Reform, offers students tips for talking to their family members about controversial topics such as “Black Murders in the Street,” “House Master Title,” and “Islamophobia/Refugees.” The placemat, divided into four possible topics of conversation, provides students with a series of sample questions they may encounter when they return home to their families along with an acceptable response to each question.

…Because if there’s anything that says “Teaching critical thinking,” it’s “We’ve printed up these talking point sheets for you to stare at while you’re stuck at holiday dinner.”  Seriously, if you’re going to use one, use this one instead:
