The Context of White Supremacy hosts the seventh study session on Angie Thomas’s historically popular young adult novel, The Hate U Give. Supposedly inspired by the 2009 police slaying of Oscar Grant, Thomas’s work “debuted at the top of The New York Times’s Young Adult best-seller list, and has drawn ecstatic praise from critics, librarians, book sellers and prominent young-adult novelists,” writes The Times’s Alexandra Alter. After more than a year, The Hate U Give remains bound to The Times’s young adult bestseller list and is being formatted for a major motion picture starring The Hunger Games’s Amandla Stenberg. Last week’s segment featured the best night of Starr’s young life. The black teen straddled a White boy in a limousine before nabbing flapjacks at IHOP to cap the high school prom. While basking in the glory of the evening with her White classmates, Starr informs readers that she didn’t think about her dead black friends, Natasha and Khalil at all. After enjoying some “brown sugar,” Chris lip-syncs “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” theme song like only a real “White ally” can. After the house is shredded with bullets, Starr and her family move out of Garden Heights for an allegedly safer neighborhood – somewhat like Will Smith’s beloved sitcom character.
The C.O.W.S. Radio Program is specifically engineered for black & non-white listeners – Victims of White Supremacy. The purpose of this program is to provide Victims of White Supremacy with constructive information and suggestions on how to counter Racist Woman & Racist Man.
