    Well that is somewhat true. But this woman is freaking idiot. It is quite obvious that she has generalized all white people into one pool that she hates. I just wonder what she does with someone who is biracial? half hate them?

    the hypocrisy of the situation is amazing and the double standard of racism as long as it isn't white racism is for some reason tolerable.

    I think students should boycott her classes. if she has no students then there will be no reason for the college to keep her.
    of course she is teaching African studies which I do believe is just an elective class unless now they have made it mandatory to take.

    they should just not take her class and leave her to sit in a room by herself.
    if I was a white student I wouldn't take her class and I would protest the school if I was forced to citing racial discrimination and a hostile
    study environment.

    somewhat? no it is 100% diseased and it is we as a society that has allowed for this to happen because we have abandoned truth
    for feelings and emotional rants of people.

    gone are the days of telling people like this to shut up and sit down. we have become a country of wimps and whiner's that allow
    this type of situation to occur.

    BU should have fired her on the spot and dismissed her outright.

    instead they tried to defend it by saying she has a 1st amendment right to say it. it wasn't until major donors to the school
    started pulling their wallets that the college came out and said anything against it.

    which means they still support her.
    for a college that supposedly doesn't tolerate racism they sure give the definition a wide berth when it comes to white racism.

    Yet, still is going to be teaching at Boston University, which is ridiculous. It's pretty obvious she hasn't exactly put in the level of academic research into her b.s. statement in the first place (hint: it isn't white masculinity that is the problem for American colleges, it's a culture of boozing and sex).

    Anyways, the biggest issue, how can she be expected to be impartial at all in the classroom? Hell to even give all the "nuance and complexity?" When you go so far as to avoid white businesses during MLK week, I fail to see how you can be expected to give students fair treatment in your classroom, especially if they dare disagree with what you believe.
    Bull ****, YOUR OUTTA HERE! Did the white people riot and burn class rooms?

    If some people didn't have double standards, they have no standards at all.

    To be fair, white college males are a problem population. I would know, I was one of them.

    The threat title should be changed to "professor regrets being held accountable for calling white college males a problem population".

    She still believes whites are THE problem, and I'm sure she has learned her lesson to make her racist statements in a less public forum the next time, and to continue her racist behavior more subtlety in the future.

    That's generally how it goes.

    Except when they get six figure windfalls from gofundme, anyway.
