From the vaunted halls of ‘African American Studies’ in academia:
Critics say a newly-hired Boston University professor has crossed the line with recent tweets bashing whites, but the school says it’s simply free speech.
“White masculinity isn’t a problem for america’s colleges, white masculinity is THE problem for america’s colleges,” Saida Grundy, an incoming assistant professor of sociology and African-American studies at Boston University, tweeted in March.
In another tweet from January, she wrote: “Every MLK week I commit myself to not spending a dime in white-owned businesses. and every year i find it nearly impossible.”
In another, she called white males a “problem population.”…
The tweets were first noticed by student Nick Pappas, who posted them on his website “SoCawlege.com” and questioned how Grundy could be able to teach a diverse classroom given the racial hostility in her tweets.
Naturally, BU is defending Grundy.
Boston University stands by the professor, who will start working at the college in June.
“Professor Grundy is exercising her right to free speech and we respect her right to do so,” Boston University spokesman Colin Riley said.
Yes, the university is defending the right to free speech, even hateful speech… just like the University of Oklahama frat kids singing a song off-campus… err, oh, wait…
Well, anyways, isn’t the real question here who this Nick Pappas, a junior at University of Massachusetts Amherst, is? Might he be… drumroll…. a straight white male, therefore proving Grundy’s point?!
