Property Is Racist, Boston University Professor Says |

https://dailycaller.com/

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.

  1. “ what is good and not good reactions”. A college professor that can’t use standard grammatical form. Send the momo back to third grade.

  2. This idiot is a professor? He’s not got the brains for it. And this property thing – he needs to be told he is not a piece of property. Never was. No one has owned him. No one today is a slave, no one today owns slaves. Why do blacks want to live in the past? They need to face reality – they are not slaves.
