The Context of White Supremacy hosts our Thursday weekly forum on Workplace Racism. This broadcast is specifically constructed to fortify our problem-solving abilities and to refine how black people think, speak, act and control our emotions while at work. Any listeners who have unearthed the best methods to minimize conflict with White and/or non-white co-workers, avoid demotions, write-ups, terminations or the other usual problems we experience under Racist work conditions should be first to call in and share details. We always welcome the experiences of Black “entrepreneurs;” please, report how being “self employed” changes your contact with Whites on the job. We’ll hear counter-racist strategies from listeners as well as individual reflections from your own work environment. Gus encourages non-white people to maintain documentation about our workplace experiences. Recording 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.
