Cyber Bully: Boston University Prof Saida Grundy Tells Rape Survivor to ‘Go Cry Somewhere’

You may remember incoming sociologist and African American studies professor Saida Grundy. She’s the newly-hired Boston University instructor who tweeted out a handful of racist messages directed mainly at young, white men, whom she blames for pretty much every society ill from a lack of good-paying jobs to embarrassing bacterial infections. Here’s a refresher, of which MLK would be appalled:

Saida Grundy 1In another tweet from January, she wrote, “Every MLK week I commit myself to not spending a dime in white-owned businesses. And every year I find it nearly impossible.”

…along with assertions from the Diversity Police that blacks cannot be racist:

Not to worry, though, because she’s sorry…she got caught.

And now Ms., er…Dr. Grundy is in more hot water for comments she made way back in February, months before her racist tweets about the entirety of the white population. Check out this exchange she had on social media with a self-described rape survivor who made the mortal sin of criticizing an op-ed linked on FaceBook which denounced Patricia Arquette’s Oscar speech calling for equal pay for women:

“I LITERALLY cry and lose sleep over this,” Chamberlin wrote, adding she had been raped as a child and felt that: “What this article did was tell me that I’m not aloud (sic) to ask for help… Because I am a WHITE woman… So when I read this article… you do understand what that does to me, right? It kills me…”

The woman, who identified herself as Sai Grundy in the Feb. 25 thread and uses the same photo the professor uses on tweets she acknowledged last week, responded by making fun of the victim’s crying.

“’I literally cry’….While we literally die,” she said before adding, “try this article. A white woman explaining this issue to other white women…who manages NOT to cry while doing it!”

Chamberlin, the rape survivor, responded: “No really. I got it. You can take your claws out, thanks.”

At which point Grundy unloaded:

Intellectual altruism? Must’ve learned that catchy phrase in her doctoral program, just waiting to whip it out at just the right moment, but I digress…

Meghan Chamberlin’s only other crime in Grundy’s eyes? Being raped while white. A burden no woman should ever have to bear.

By the way, Grundy’s Twitter account is set to “private,” you know, so that her racism and rape survivor-shaming can only be seen by a select audience lest a potential employer see. Meanwhile, her attack on Ms. Chamberlin has been conveniently deleted. Nevertheless, social media is forever, even given your best efforts to shred the evidence.

At best, Saida Grundy has a crushing chip on her shoulder, and playing the Victim Card keeps her gainfully employed. At worst, she’s an angry, hate-filled racist. And, unlike Ms. Chamberlin, she’s a coward. And now we know she’s also an insensitive cyber bully who has no business working in an academic environment with a diverse student body over whom she has tremendous power. By the way, that power/racism dynamic? It can also exist in college classrooms, Dr. Grundy. And that’s why no university should employ you. Anywhere. Ever.

Your move, Boston University.

    Yeah, if you want to play that “only white people can be racist because they have the power” card, you *really* have to, ummm, not actually be in a position of power. Oh, and the current president of the United Freaking Racist States of America is a BLACK MAN.

    You really need to grow some self-awareness, girl.

    I can understand Professor Grundy privatizing her Twitter account. But I don’t think her racist survivor-shaming is going to have much of an effect on potential employers. Not an adverse effect, anyway. Besides, the only professors who get fired for what they say about race issues are 80-year-old white guys.

  • Brat says:

    “Intellectual altruism…? IF that meant what this POS (black or white) thinks it does, she could NOT have written any of that crap.

    She is a coward and intellectually dishonest and if I was her employer – supposedly hired to engage ALL colours of students in ctirical thinking with intellectual discourse – she would be fired.

    Period. But that’s just me.

  • Meghan Chamberlin says:

    This article is everything to me. I can’t thank you enough for it. I’ve felt so completely slighted and alone in all of this. I’m not going to lie, though. In light of the exposure of her criminal activity, I am “LITERALLY” scared for my safety and more importantly, my family’s safety. How can someone get away with “apologizing” for the “white male comment”, give an “EXCUSE” for disgusting, harassing, stalking, thievery of ANOTHER woman and yet her and the institution that keeps her in “POWER” have nothing to say to me except “I didn’t know she was raped” (which she didn’t say to me… I got to read her sentence, spoken by someone else, somewhere online). I actually gave her the benefit of the doubt. I wanted to believe that what happened that day didn’t affect me as much as it did (still does); I wanted to believe “no way: a) another woman; b) another woman who has felt marginilized; c) a very educated person; d) a very educated person with a PhD; e) a PROFESSOR at some pretty elite universities; e) a FELLOW smart, educated woman, period… could EVER talk to me that way while knowing it. I hadn’t looked back at that thread since it hit Fox News. I couldn’t because it was a trigger. Now that I can’t avoid it and I am forced to really look at this event objectively… I feel victimized again. Please keep in mind that my previous sentence is honestly very scary for me to say because I’ve been afraid to say “yes, I can be a victim too” for so long because I’ve been conditioned to think “okay, so some bad things happened to you… a lot of bad things. but, it doesn’t compare to what other people have suffered, therefore I should keep my poor-me, pity-party mouth shut up.” However, I’ll tell you one thing… I’ll be DAMNED if my girls ever grow up feeling they aren’t deserving of every right that anyone else on a leveled playing field would be given. They will never feel such self-deprecating behavior that robs them of their life”. Such self-deprecative behavior that overwhelms so many victims of sexual/physical/domestic assault & all too often therefore suffer a lifetime or what feels like a lifetime of mental health issues. We’re not weak, but we are very impressionable at times… (it “LITERALLY” is science that victims, especially of multiple assault traumas, often feel like they have to protect their oppressor because of fear and then after enough time has gone by, the brain convinces itself that it has no worth or it wouldn’t matter etc.) It hit me one day… “This is going to kill me; this feeling and the way it makes me treat myself is going to kill me unless I say “STOP”, find my voice and call out the intrinsic horrid consequences that come with intersentionality. I’m still waiting for a discussion on that. There are those of us out there that need a voice, a platform, a team behind them and not lost, silenced or postponed for the poor sake of intersectionality. So it stops with me. Another key point is that by American standards I am “poor”. One income family; one car; two kids; paycheck to paycheck; can’t even afford to pay co-pays, therefore my illness suffers so much more; My husband who has MS can only make his BARE MINIMUM, at best, appointments for same reasons… so that pay-grade part? That’s another discussion altogether. Her flaunting her education, when mine was robbed after the PTSD said “nope” (also another conversation). Oh, and just an f.w.i. to Dr. Grundy, I’ve used the term “intellectual altruism” since I was a freshman in high school, just about every weekend/weekday when prepping for my regular cross-examination debate/extemporaneous speaking tournaments, locally, state wide and nationally. Ironic? Don’tcha think? I at least have to laugh to myself about it to keep some kind of humor in this, which is what keeps me sane. Again, thank you Victory Girls… probably more so for putting up with my signature “novel comments”. Thank you for helping me to feel so much less alone in this. It really does mean the world to me.

      Hi, Meghan,

      Thank you so much for your comment, and for visiting our blog. I can only imagine the horror of what you’ve endured, let alone experiencing an undeserved personal attack by a person who should no better.

      Stay strong. And as my fellow Victory Girls have already expressed, you are not alone.

      You are boring and so is your story.
      Get a life.
      This ¨life is treating me like I´m the N*igger¨ sob story you have going on is silly and dumb.
      Trying living in a third world country.
      But here is a thought.
      Bleach your hair blond, get implants, and go work for FOX news full-time.
      They love race hustlers like you.

      • Jodi Giddings says:

        W, thanks for visiting our blog.

        To counter: The only “race hustler” I see in this whole story is Saida Grundy and those who use the “N” word to describe both a rape survivor, and an entire community of their fellow Americans.
