Regret Over Tweets on Race

Inside Higher Ed
May 12th, 2015

Saida Grundy this week may have become the most discussed new assistant professor of the year, without even starting her position.
While Grundy's tweets on race have been debated intensely, she initially stayed on the sidelines. But on Tuesday she released a statement of "regret" and a clarification of her comments that were critical of white male college students and white businesses.
Her statement came hours after Robert A. Brown, president of Boston University, where Grundy becomes an assistant professor of sociology July 1, issued a statement that was highly critical of her comments on Twitter.
