    stupid school.

    Don't care if she has that opinion, lots of people of all colours have similar racist beliefs. The issue is with a university hiring her. What a fabulous role model for her students.

    White males are a problem population?

    Oh yes, because when I think high crime areas, I think all white male areas.


    I find it hilarious that Boston University is standing behind her and saying she was just using "free speech." Please. If that was a white professor tweeting that same comment about black men they would be fired immediately. It would also be splashed all over cable news.

    She's certainly free to say whatever she wants under the first amendment. However, if I were a student paying $62k a year (yes, you read that right) to attend Boston University, I would seriously question the quality of the education I'm getting for my (borrowed) money.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Unfortunately, this is nothing new for our universities. If she were white all hell would break loose.

    If African Americans don't stop rioting and burning down black businesses, they might have no choice but to go shop from Whitey or go hungry.

    Stupid fucking comment by the professor, and I am sure that if a white professor said that, the University would say "it's a free speech issue".

    If she was white and said that about blacks she'd be fired. And rightly so. I'm embarrassed for the stance of that school.

    It really is a sad statement on society in general that she's a college professor. That "the educated" have opinions like hers is truly sad. That she publically states them is frightening. That her employer does nothing about is inexcusable.

    I don't find this particular tweet, or the actions / sentiment described therein problematic:

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

    It seems to me that this statement is simply recounting her experience of an interesting, annual, social experiment, and the economic realities encountered. We had an entire TV series devoted to something similar recently where families tried to survive 'only buying British'. They too found it next to impossible. Would you consider the airing of such a topic xenophobic?

    There is a not so subtle difference between "buy British" and "avoid the white devils businesses".

    but why phrase it like that? Why not say, every MLK day I commit myself to supporting black owned businesses? That's a positive stance similar to " I support independent businesses on the Saturday after Black Friday" It's the negative attack stance that I have a problem with. What does boycotting white businesses have to do with supporting black businesses? they are not mutually exclusive.

    Incidentally, having done a bit of digging around, it seems that neither Fox News (or the Washington Times) reported the contents of the tweets entirely accurately, surprise, surprise...

    Prof. Grundy's reference to "white college age males" as being a "problem population" was, in fact, in response to the Dept. of Justice's report that over 60% of campus rapes were committed by..."White males"...

    Might I go so far as to suggest that the young man who complained about her comments was in fact a little toad, looking to further his own agenda, whatever that may be? (He runs what has been described as a right wing blog entitled "SoCawledge").

    I always like to get both sides on this sort of thing - it makes news stories a bit more 'rounded', if not quite so salacious...
