The Context of White Supremacy hosts our Thursday weekly caucus on Workplace Racism. This program is uniquely designed to strengthen our problem-solving abilities and to codify how black people think, speak, act and manage our emotions while at work. Any listeners who have unearthed the best techniques to minimize conflict with White and/or non-white co-workers, avoid demotions, write-ups, terminations or the other typical problems we experience under Racist work conditions should be first to dial in and share specifics. We always welcome the experiences of Black “entrepreneurs;” please, report how being “self employed” alters your contact with Whites on the job. We’ll hear counter-racist methods from listeners as well as individual reflections from your own work environment. Gus encourages non-white people to keep written notes about our workplace experiences. Writing down your thoughts and workplace incidents is more reliable than memory, and the act of writing can help organize and elucidate your understanding. We’ll also request that non-white listeners share significant portions of policy and procedure from your current place of employment.
