Saida Grundy’s excellent electronic adventures: Now it’s a sex site set up for a love-rival

May 22, 2015

My latest blog post for the Independent Women’s Forum:

Saida Grundy, the incoming Boston University professor accused of insensitive trolling.

Grundy: Loving her some social media

First, there was the bizarre series of anti-white, anti-male Twitter comments, all tweeted by Grundy, who is black, made only this past April, after Boston University hired her to teach sociology and African-American studies starting this fall. They included such remarks as:

“why is white america so reluctant to identify white college males as a problem population?”

“in other words, deal with your white [expletive], white people. Slavery is a *YALL* thing.”

***

But now there’s this, reported by the Boston Herald:

Grundy used the identity of a Virginia woman in a jealous fit over a man in late 2007 to create online accounts in the woman’s name, including one on an adult website for people looking for trysts, according to a police report obtained by the Herald under a Freedom of Information Act request.

Grundy got one year of probation after pleading guilty to malicious use of telecommunication services, a misdemeanor, according to online court records and Dan Dwyer, the court administrator at Washtenaw County Trial Court in Michigan. Two felony charges, identity theft and using a computer to commit a crime, were dismissed.

The cyber harassment took place in December 2007 when Grundy was at the University of Michigan, where she earned a master’s degree in sociology and a doctorate of philosophy in sociology and women’s studies in 2014.

During an interview with detectives at her home in May 2008, Grundy said she had never met the victim but “this was a jealous thing regarding another man,” according to the police report.
