About a week and a half ago, I wrote about Boston University’s decision to stand by its hiring of a new sociology professor named Saida Grundy despite her tweets about “white college males” as a “problem population” and not patronizing “white-owned businesses”.
BU initially defended Grundy “as exercising her right to free speech”. However, following a backlash, BU issued a statement which read, “The University does not condone racism or bigotry in any form and we are deeply saddened when anyone makes such offensive comments.” Needless to say, the statement did not mention Grundy by name much less declare any intention of imposing any disciplinary measures.
Well, they might need to because when Grundy doesn’t rail against white males on Twitter she likes to taunt white female rape victims on Facebook. When Meghan Chamberlin objected to an article about race by writing about her own experience with rape, Grundy responded in kind only without the kindness:
“^^THIS IS THE S**T I AM TALKING ABOUT. WHY DO YOU GET TO PLAY THE VICTIM EVERY TIME PEOPLE OF COLOR AND OUR ALLIES WANT TO POINT OUT RACISM. my CLAWS?? Do you see how you just took an issue that WASNT about you, MADE it about you, and NOW want to play the victim when I take the time to explain to you some s**t that is literally $82,000 below my pay grade? And then you promote your #whitegirltears like that’s some badge you get to wear… YOU BENEFIT FROM RACISM. WE’RE EXPLAINING THAT TO YOU and you’re vilifying my act of intellectual altruism by saying i stuck my “claws” into you?”
When Chamberlin responded that she was exiting the conversation, Grundy replied, “go cry somewhere. since that’s what you do.”
As stated in my previous post, Boston University will be charging nearly $63,000 in tuition for the forthcoming academic year. For $63,000 a year per student, is this the best BU can do?
