The Context of White Supremacy was scheduled to speak with Black Lives Matter Toronto co-founder Yusra Khogali. However, unfortunate circumstances kept her from speaking with us. Gus still made time to discuss developments with the case of Andrew Loku – a black male who the police shot and killed in Toronto during the summer of 2015. Gus reiterated his position that no amount of protesting, marching, “rioting” or counter-violence against the police is going to stop enforcements officers from brutalizing black people. This is a part of what White Supremacy produces. We also made time to discuss developments with the 2016 presidential election. Donald J. Trump seems all but assured the Republican nomination as all other candidates have gracefully bowed out. Gus also emphasized the importance of monitoring how speak to other black people. Anti-blackness is a major problem and product of White Supremacy. Talking down to black people is probably not going to help us solve our problems.
