Boston University Professor Saida Grundy, a feminist sociologist of race and ethnicity listed as an incoming assistant professor of sociology and African-American studies at B.U., has come under fire for her Tweets that essentially argued that white people were the worst people, and biggest slave owners in history.

I could not have said this any better than Turtleboy:
So let me get this straight. Saida Grundy is going to be teaching a whole bunch of white boys at BU in the near future. And she’s going into her job while publicly stating that “white college males” are a “problem population.” Not just SOME white college males, like the Oklahoma frat boys from the racist video. ALL white college males. They are all a “problem population.” I’m sure white dudes will definitely get a fair shake in her class next year. Definitely.
What better way to honor a man who “had a dream” and said that one day he hoped that “little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers,” than by boycott small businesses because the owners of the store happen to be white.
Sure, if she’s boycotting a pizza shop or a restaurant, it’s almost guaranteed that the owner’s ancestors lived in Europe when MLK made this speech, and thus had ZERO to do with oppression. But you should never let the truth get in the way of some good ol’ fashioned race-baiting.
Yea NPR, how dare you interview black neighborhood residents who don’t like their neighborhoods being burned to the ground by rioters. You should be ENCOURAGING the Baltimore rioters like Saida Grundy is. LOL. We said it before and we’ll say it again. Anyone who DOES NOT have to live in that neighborhood in Baltimore and is encouraging rioting and looting on social media, hates black people. It’s the only explanation for this racist behavior.
You’re sitting there in a perfectly safe enviornment, far-removed from the madness, and you’re encouraging rioters to destroy the only store that black people have to buy groceries and medicine. Only a racist would do somethingl ike that. Saida Grundy is a certifiable racist.
My ancestors are European, as are many people’s, my ancestors did not have slaves, they were slaves!
Free speech advocates say that Grundy should have a right to her free speech, however, they also say the university speech policy is hypocritical because it allows the university to censor offensive or bigoted speech if it wanted to. What would the ramifications be if a student posted such racist
Virginia Sapiro, dean of BU’s College of Arts and Sciences, said she hired Grundy for the tenure-track position, along with 17 other assistant professors who will start this fall, because of her impressive credentials.
“Universities are not opposed to controversy,” Sapiro said. “Education requires that people be able to communicate with each other and listen and tolerate people communicating.
