Boston U prof skates after 'horribly racist' Tweet

"why is white america so reluctant to identify white college males as a problem population?

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

looting is just poor black ppl’s best impression of Wall Street [thanks for capitalizing that … no pun intended] and the *entire rest of america*. wanting unearned goods is not a black trait


dear white people: u are all ben affleck. those euphemisms for ur ancestors like “farmers” & “pioneers” means owned humans & killed natives"  Dr. Saida Grundy

Do you want actual racial equality? Do you desire actual racial harmony? I have news for you: you’re in the minority. It seems even the most ardent champions fighting against racism are often avowed racists. Case in point: Dr. Saida Grundy, a black professor set to start teaching at Boston University on July 1.

She decided it was a good idea to get on Twitter and pontificate in a most scholarly fashion concerning the obstacles that need to be destroyed in order to achieve racial equality. Unfortunately, one of those obstacles is apparently the entire white male population. Below are some calm, well-reasoned tweets, absolutely none of which were written in ALL CAPS!!!!!!! or without any punctuation at all, and all of which avoid hasty and/or sweeping generalizations. Because that wouldn't be fitting for a college professor. /sarcasm [Last Resistance]

Just prior to stumbling across that Grundy-race bait,  I saw this blurb about "Confederate  Flag at Prom flag" horror on CNN's  Amtrak story page.  The whole Confederate flag is a racist meme has been explained and refuted so many times (myfavorite is Shelby Foote's) that we know not to try.  Rabble rousing race baiters like Saida Grundy, or Barry Obama for that matter, are not interested in reason.  I'll close by paraphrasing Obama's recent comments about why FOX NEWS needs shutting down.

They will find folks who make me mad. I don’t know where they find them. They’re all like, “this is racist. and so is that,  and if you don't believe me then you be a racist mofo, or whatever.” And that becomes an entire narrative that gets worked up.

Sit back and enjoy the self segregation that our hyphenated brethren demand. It has worked well in a number of US cities. And let us not ignore the success of Robert Mugabe's Zimbabwe.

Robert Mugabe is one of the very few of Barack Obama's heroes still among the living.

After all, Lenin, Stalin and Trotsky are all long gone, as are Dr. Goebbels, Mussolini, Mao and Pol Pot. Saul Alinsky and Frank Marshall Davis have shuffled off this mortal coil, as have Hugo Chavez and Nelson Mandela.

And I’m pretty sure the Mau-Maus who terrorized the hated British in his beloved Kenya are all gone, too.

But at least Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Fidel Castro and Robert Mugabe are still around. Not to mention the rappers that Obama so much admires, when he has them visit the White House and put their feet up on the desk in the Oval Office.
