Property Is Racist, Boston University Professor Says

by Bryan Babb


A Boston University assistant professor deemed property racist while defending riots in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd in a Wednesday video.

Boston University assistant professor Saida Grundy compared looting in the aftermath of George Floyd‘s death to black people “looting themselves” from slavery, according to a video posted by the university. Grundy also urged people not to judge communities’ reactions and to listen to them to address their needs.

“We hear President Biden say, you know, I understand your frustrations but don’t destroy property,” Grundy said. “Well, when you say that to Black people who historically have been property, one of our greatest weapons against injustice was the looting of ourselves as property from the system of slavery.”

“And what we see in communities is they’re reacting to the very racism of what we call property,” Grundy added.

Grundy is a “feminist sociologist of race & ethnicity” who covers women’s and gender studies, sociology and African-American studies, according to Boston University. Her prior research has examined masculinity and “social justice capitalism” as well as “racialized rape culture.”

Boston University and Grundy did not respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

    Another typical far left professor teaching worthless courses soout off to get her 15 minutes of fame. Bring this stupid, she deserves to be denied tenure, but given how clueless the university was in hiring, she is probably well on her way to tenure.

    It would be justice if someone helped themselves to her property.

    colleges like BU are communist training centers.

    “Grundy is a “feminist sociologist of race & ethnicity” who covers women’s and gender studies, sociology and African-American studies, according to Boston University”

    anything with ‘studies’ on the end is a clue to the uselessness of the topic and the person teaching it.

    Funny. I had a black male patient who stayed on the farm and continued to buy property east of Memphis. He is doing pretty good with over 5000 acres now.
