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.
