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 double standard about who can tweet what isn't what bothers me about this, although, if this were turned around in any sense then we would see firings and outrage of epic proportions. What truly bothers me about this is that when you create a toxic situation like this professor has done it is impossible to heal as a nation and it creates resentment. This means there is no room for real discussion or debate and no chance for love and mutual respect to come into play. I am disappointed and sad.

Just change the words in his statement from "white" to "black"

Still free speech? Or hate speech?



aint that the truth

Might have something to do with the over representation of white males at the top your typical Joe schmo is not getting the hate. The hate is probably the deliberate manipulation of society by a small group of white males who also work in cooperation with other races to keep the status quo afloat.


What a load of BS.

Wow.

I am a regular Joe Schmoe. I have gotten the hate, and so have many others.

Everyone is being oppressed people being prejudice towards you is the tip of the iceberg of a long line of hate and oppression being brought towards humans because people were fed to believe in the illusion of seperation.

"What people say is their Karma - how you react is yours"

The 1st amendment has blessed the professor and all US citizen to open their mouths and go full retard if they so please......

Any US citizens' opinion has equal weight to the professors.

Opinion being the operative word.






People can say what they want. When someone brings violence to the table, don't be surprised when my karma is self defense. Want peace? Do things peaceful. Want death, keep doing what you're doing. I'm armed and ready for whatever outcome comes my way. I'm tired of the bull# anyway and just looking for a reason to put it down.

I'll never be sorry or think whites are the problem or that there is a debt to be paid by us. You can shove that # up your collective asses.

You apart of a bubble you've never seen the glorification of European ideals by people that have nothing to do with Europe. How every culture seems to stereotype and dislike the people of a darker skin tone it is prevalent everywhere in this day and age.


Being surrounded by gangs increases the probability, but does not guarantee it. Most of my childhood friends joined gangs, sold drugs, some are dead, most have been to prison. I'm no angel, but I've actively avoided it. I lost friends for trying to live with morals, It's harder than it sounds, but on the other hand it's only as hard as you make it. People need a greater sense of self-determination.

My friends belong to Mexican/Latino gangs, we grew up with the same situations, most had parents who where drug dealers and users as well.

I don't accept anyone suggesting that a person from that environment can only be one way. That's a trap. It's a powerful trap, and easy to fall into, but it's a trap. I know drug dealers who say "I couldn't afford college" but they have a nice car and jewelry, all the latest technology. They have money to start a legit business.

They don't need excuses, they need new ways of thinking. I've gone out of my way to be challenged. I expose myself to new ideas daily. My friends stay shut off to ideas, because they don't like being told what to do. They question my manhood for listening to other men's opinions. The problem is much deeper than "they grew up in a bad neighborhood" if we end the discussion there we make no progress.

The problem is culture perpetuated by media and blaming people part of the trap they don't know any better especially when media enforces their perception

I'm itching for justice. If it's what you said, so be it. I never did like playing the victim or letting someone else do the work.

You just spewed a bunch is bull. Egyptians were originally black they live in africa for emboss sake and essentially we all the same which is black we all come from one origin and that is the motherland. Then you have the audacity to criticize black culture? You mean the culture artificially created by the mainstream to keep people stagnant and mind controlled as consumers? Hip hop was about uplifting and showing the flaws of the system but was bastardized and commodified for the masses you do know ALOT of white people listen to rap shot there the only ones you see at the concerts because they can afford it. And longer hours won't help our education system teaching less crap will.


When I had my DNA tested there is some African, which I am proud of actually. I look white. Culturally I am white. So do I get to criticize black culture because I am part black even though I don't look like it? Nope. "Black culture" would never accept me because of what I look like. Most people, black or white simply dismiss it if I tell them this... because of what I look like. We sort people out culturally by what we see. I think this is inevitable. I hope that someday in this country we will become more homogenized in our morphology; then maybe this will stop.

We all come from Africa, this is true, but some of us are a little closer than others, and some people wear that on their faces and some don't. It is what it is.

Every MLK week I commit myself to not spending a dime in black-owned businesses. and every year i find it nearly impossible.

There I have the right to say it. Should there be outrage? NO, because I have the right to say it. Would there be outrage YES, because this is the land of entitlement. Let's take the high road and eventually the nonsense talkers will fall apart.

But what is black culture if you see the present culture as Black culture you are wrong. This culture pushed on black ppl by the media is not theirs even tho they claim it. It is a culture purposely concocted to keep them stagnant. The black community is actually worst off now then 50 yrs ago and this is not a coincidence just because oppression is more covert doesn't mean it isn't happening.

There is still racism towards african americans or those of color, I've seen it myself. I don't get it and think its retarded. I think people who're like that don't know any african americans and come from a very isolated background. But do I think most of this hate is coming from college professors? No. The vast majority I've known have not discriminated anybody based on race and are pro-affirmative action. BUT it has been my experience college professors are haters of anybody who isn't educated or not fluent in more than one language. I think they just tend to hate anybody who they think has a lazy mind or managed to skip school and still get a good paying job. And it seems a number of them hate republicans/conservatism too.

They're teachers, not working people. Maybe they were working people at one time. Maybe some of them still are. Just seems to me lots of them are out of touch with the actual working world. I know people conventionally think of teachers as working people but school isn't real life. And THAT's why it's not the same thing. School is fantasy land dominated by liberals.

REAL black culture if examined throughout history is a matriarchal society that emphasizes community and family also a healthy reverance for nature.

I didn't mean it in a bad way but we must look at the whole and find the root because all hate comes from the same.source

Yes it's human nature.

We're a hateful species. Always have been, always will be.

The thing is, some people are taught to control it, and others are taught to let it out on those that offend them.

It's all about self control, and understanding right from wrong.

This professor came from a background of hate, so she continues to hate. It would take a life altering situation for a person to change their belief structure, and that happens to a precious few.
