The Context of White Supremacy welcomes the return of Dr. Niyana Rasayon. A behavioral neuroscientist, neuropsychologist, professor, author and father, Dr. Rasayon is a North Carolina A&T alumnus and one of our listeners’ favorite guests. We’ve previously discussed his published work, including The Awakening: OMG The President Is Black and Reality Check: A Manuel for the Hue-Man Octahedron & The Mystery of Melain. Dr. Rasayon was kind enough to step away from the yuletide festivities to review the hideous year of 2016. Countless black people who devoted their existence to healing black people and confronting Racism did not see this year’s conclusion. Prince, Muhammad Ali, George Curry, Natalie Cole, Phife Dawg, Gwen Ifill, Maurice White, Dr. Delbert Blair, Dr. Afeni Shakur, Dr. Sebi, and Dr. Frances Cress Welsing all transitioned this year. President Barack Obama is still alive, but he won’t occupy the White House in 2017. We’ll ask Dr. Rasayon how President-elect Trump impacts how we view Pres. Obama tenure as Commander In Chief. We’ll also review the federal conviction of Dylann Storm Roof. The White Terrorist killed nine black worshipers – including State Senator Rev. Clementa Pinckney, after having methodically planned the attack for months. Now many White and non-white people are asking that his White life be spared.
