The Context of White Supremacy welcomes Graham Reynolds live from Canada. The Viola Desmond Chair in Social Justice at Cape Breton University, Mr. Reynolds is a professor emeritus, historian and author. His 2016 publication, Viola Desmond’s Canada: A History of Blacks and Racial Segregation in the Promised Land, examines the history of Racism (White Supremacy) in Canada as well as the story of Viola Desmond. Ms. Desmond was a non-white female who was arrested for refusing to leave the “White” section of a movie theater in 1946. She often compared to Rosa Parks, but Gus insists this is a highly erroneous comparison and continues the distortion of Parks’ titanic legacy, where she invested decades of her life deliberately attacking White Supremacy and facing death to do so. We’ll also get Mr. Reynolds’s assessment of Black Lives Matter: Toronto – which has brought international attention to anti-black Racism in Canada, police terrorism and the death of Andrew Loku.
