Black Professor at Boston University Criticized for Tweets about Racism, Slavery

Black Professor Saida Grundy Criticized for Tweets on White Masculinity

Right Wing Twitter is loudly outraging itself today over the tweets of Dr. Saida Grundy, a new African American Studies professor at Boston University who dared to imply that White people were responsible for slavery and called “White college age males” a “problem population.”

A right-leaning college blog called SoCawlege, run by a guy named Nick Pappas, seems to have been the first place to get angry about Grundy’s tweets, pointing out ones where she said things like, “White people, slavery is a *YALL* thing,” and calling her “a big problem” for BU. Pappas also declared she was unfit to teach White men: “If you are going to work at Boston University you have to teach college aged White males eventually no? You probably already have/are working with them. To us, this seems like you are unqualified to grade their work as you clearly demonstrate some kind of special bias against them.”
