Tuition these days at Boston University is $47,000 a year. If that sounds steep, then consider this: Who wouldn’t want to take classes with assistant professor of sociology and African-American studies Saida Grundy, who says white people are a “problem population”? For a mere $47,000, you too can learn to define yourself by the color of your skin while adopting a weird sense of self-loathing that will stick with you the rest of your life.
Thanks to some amazing legwork by college student Nick Pappas over at Socawlege.com, the world now gets to see who dispenses “higher education” these days at universities across the country. Fox News dug in a little deeper into Ms. Grundy’s account — before she locked it — and found out that not only are white males a “problem population,” but so is white masculinity. (Sorry Navy SEALs and Army Rangers — you’ve got to go.)
She tweeted: “White masculinity isn’t a problem for America’s colleges, white masculinity is THE problem for America’s colleges.”
She’s so angry about these “problems” that once a year she goes out of her way to try and refrain from purchasing goods and services from white-owned companies.
And when she’s not lamenting on those “problem” white people, she’s trying to convince her students that looting by black people is no different than Wall Street trading. Got it? If not, then there’s a good chance you have been corrupted by “problem” white people (i.e., men who use logic and reason) like yours truly.
Fox News reached out to Boston University, which stands by its professor’s racist Twitter stream:
“Professor Grundy is exercising her right to free speech and we respect her right to do so,” Boston University spokesman Colin Riley said.
Grundy did not respond to a request for comment from FoxNews.com, and has made her twitter account private.
Just think: for roughly $200K, you too can get a African-American studies degree from Boston University. When you walk into your first job interview, you can possibly berate a white man sitting across the table and tell him how much of “problem” he is for the rest of the country. You can pitch your top marketable skill — steering black people away from his business one week each March. When he doesn’t hire you, then it will be counted as proof that Ms. Grundy was right all along. You can go back for a Masters degree in African-American studies and possibly end up being a teacher’s assistant at Boston University.
Ask yourself (or Boston University spokesman Colin Riley) this question: If a Boston University professor said that black men were a “problem population” and then admitted that he went out of his way once a year to try and avoid black-owned businesses, how long would that individual be employed?
Years ago I had a job that allowed me to do quite a bit of traveling to colleges across the country. It was self-evident that professors like Ms. Grundy are the norm in certain departments. They might not say transparently vile things into their Twitter feed, but the same general worldview is pumped into the minds of impressionable young students.
Why would any sane white student on a tight budget — who is taking out tens-of-thousands of dollars in student loans — ever register for Ms. Grundy’s class? There are some left-wing professors who are fair, but there are others who expect students to parrot everything they say in order to receive high marks. With scholarships and big money on the line, it would make little sense to voluntarily enter a classroom where your mere existence constitutes a “problem.”
If I attended Boston University, then I would not be donating to it in my golden years. My guess is that if you do a little investigating into your own alma mater, then you’ll soon see rhetoric that will make you think twice about opening up your wallet when the requests for cash come rolling in.
These days, the only thing many colleges are good for is a degree in double-standards or hypocrisy. Sad.
