“Slavery is white people…thing” tweets Boston University Saida Grundy, Assistant Professor of sociology and African-American Studies at Boston University.
Grundy shows stunning ignorance of slavery both past and present in various cultures. Where was this professor educated? How was she vetted?
Grundy didn’t stop there. She asks: “is white people’s new deflection from dealing with slavery that ‘all races have had slaves’ thing? is this the new ‘#AllLivesMatter’?”
Professor Grundy added other enlightening tweets:
“for the record, NO race outside of Europeans had a system that made slavery a *personhood* instead of temporary condition;
“there is also no race except Europeans who kidnapped and transported human beings in order to enslave them and their offspring for life;
“before Europeans invented it as such, slavery was not a condition that was de facto inherited from parent to child.”
Firenze Sage: Somewhere in the dusk of history she may find Greek slaves
or Roman slaves
or Egyptian slaves or even, horror of horrors, African slaves, a word derived from Slavs in the Middle Ages.
