    If boston university continues to employ this women then I highly suggest all white students avoid her class like the plague.
    I think it also very much discredits boston university as a scholarly school for supporting such a person.

    if this was a white person they would be fired automatically.

    I hope that all you people criticizing this professor criticize hateful bigots like Pamela Geller or Ayaan Hirsi Ali just as hard

    Ward Churchill kept his job for six years after his "Little Eichmanns" comment after 9/11, which was FAR worse.

    That said, this BU professor is a loon who SHOULD lose her job.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Why?

    Sai Grundy Is a hateful bigot all on her own. So is Gellar... on her own. I don't know enough about Ayaan Hirsi Ali to comment but why the need to provide a measure of cover for Grundy by insisting that these other people be included in any criticism? Gellar is taking a POUNDING right now in more than one thread on this site.

    Did you post a comment in any of them insisting that anyone criticizing her must also criticize Grundy with equal enthusiasm? If you did, great. If not, zip it.

    So read the whole exchange as well as the article the conversation was about. And the article had nothing to do with sexual assault so the woman making the complaint DID hijack the conversation. That said, if someone hijacks your conversation with their rape story you at least say "I'm sorry about what happened to you but...." and THEN tear into them about derailing.

    The whole $82000 below my pay grade comment? Yeah, she is full of herself. Seems like an unpleasant person to hang around and I certainly wouldn't take her class if I had a choice.

    Trolling a white rape victim? How very classy.

    Boston University needs to do the right thing here. This woman has no business in the classroom and her presence there is a poor reflection not only on Boston University but on higher education in general.
    If I'm not mistaken, she hasn't entered a Boston classroom yet. I posted info from her CV (available online) in another thread, and you can see exactly who she is from this. She's filling a little niche for her new employer, and she will be wildly, wildly popular with the very few students who are interested in her boring two-note song.

    Institutionally, the concern, at least in my opinion, should be the number of auto-grade challenges there will be by any student who doesn't fit the extremely limited student demographic she will appeal to. I'm sure Dr. Grundy has already had a little conference with HR, and they've probably jump-started her on harassment training required of all.
