The far-left finds evidence of racism under every rock, often with very scant evidence.
One week it might be a pull rope attached to a garage door and the next it might be something as basic as math.
Now, this week’s new thing that’s racist was unearthed by a Boston University professor.
In yet one more example of leftist craziness, Boston University employs Saida Grundy as an assistant professor.
Grundy is infamous for being an apologist for leftist BLM rioting during the 2020 “Summer of Love” where dozens were killed in addition to billions of dollars in property damage in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death.
The University tweeted a video of Grundy saying, “We hear President Biden say, ‘You know, I understand your frustrations but don’t destroy property.’ 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, right? So that’s why I think it’s very important for, you know, people who see reactions in communities to not judge and to not make assumptions about what is good and not good reactions. And not actually re-victimize communities by saying there’s an acceptable and a not acceptable way to react.”

So Grundy feels that the injustice of slavery several lifetimes ago ought to be a “get out of jail free” card that gives a pass to those who riot and steal and break things and, more than that, she thinks it’s wrong to judge people for their criminal actions negatively.
Of course, since slavery was abolished 157 years ago, no one who looted property during the George Floyd riots had been a slave, or had parents or grandparents or great-grandparents who had been slaves, and no one in the George Floyd riots was looting as a weapon against the injustice of slavery.
Also, black people in America own property and would no more like to see that property looted as anyone else would.
If Grundy was sincere in her belief, she could divest her personal possessions in a show of solidarity with the oppressed in order to really make a bold statement.
All of this racialist discourse is, at its core, a backdoor approach to Marxism.
That no one at the University even thought to challenge or push back against this nuttiness and that it was broadcast on the University’s social media accounts says everything that needs to be said about the radical and sad state of higher education in 2022.
