BU Professor: Property is a “Racist Construct”


Saida Grundy, a Boston University assistant professor, called property a racist construct and urged people to refrain from judging the actions of minority communities to events such as the death of George Floyd. 

In a video posted by the University, Grundy says that the looting during the riots that followed the George Floyd case is similar to Black Americans “looting themselves” out of the place of being slaves. The video was produced to mark the second anniversary of Floyd’s death. 

“We hear President Biden say, you know, I understand your frustrations but don’t destroy property,” Grundy said in the University’s video. “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 said that by saying there is an acceptable way or an unacceptable way to respond to tragedy essentially “re-victimizes” people of color in communities were these events take place.

According to Boston University, Grundy is a “feminist sociologist of race & ethnicity” who covers women’s and gender studies, sociology, and African-American studies. 

The 2020 George Floyd riots caused over one billion dollars in damages in cities across America in 2020.

    An idiot like this should be picking up trash off the streets.

    She and all other idiot, racist haters like her must NEVER be allowed in any school, college or university in America.

    Well she is right – in the way she and her kind use language. When they say “racist”, they mean “not communist”. And communism does not have property rights. So when she says “property is a racist construct”, translated into English, this means what normal people would state as “in communism, there is no private property”, which is correct.

    She is of course a dangerous lunatic, but it helps to understand what your adversaries are thinking and saying rather than saying it’s just nonsense (which her sentence, if treated as an English language sentence, is).

    She’s not right in the head.

  4. Bill B. says

    I wonder how much she gets paid for shoveling this mush into her students’ heads! =

  5. Stan says

    Whereas this could hold true long ago, it doesn’t hold water today. There is nary a person alive today that was a slave nor even witnessed slavery so no, that dog don’t hunt

  6. John says

    An attempt to legitimize racial ignorance by a tenured college professor, only reinforces the ignorance of any class under her instruction.
    We have educated at least 2 if not 3 generations of community organizers and/or left-wing protesters. Antifa and the BLM would be so proud!
