If you are awarded a grammy, you are considered to be the best artist among your peers. The problem is, the Grammys is a white-dominated organization and while it has long "included" non-white people, specifically Black people in the music business, the industry continues to support, promote and reward music that is harmful to black people in general and black women and girls specifically.
The Context of White Supremacy welcomes the return of Dr. Tommy Curry. Dr. Curry is an Associate Professor of Philosophy at Texas A&M University. His weekly radio segment “Talking Tough with Tommy,” is one of the top rated segments on SiriusXM. We’re curious to know more about how Dr. Curry has managed to speak out so consistently, explicitly on the System of White Supremacy. We’ll inquire about any career obstacles he’s faced while seeking to advance within the academy. We’ll also get his thoughts on whether or not “White Ignorance” is responsible for the abuse that Whites dole out to black people. As Black History Month winds to a close, we’ll also examine his thoughts on the poor understanding of black scholarship. Dr. Curry contends that black people don’t hold a comprehensive grasp of attempted counter-racist soldiers such as Ida B. Wells, Amiri Baraka and Rosa Parks. He submits that if we did have an in depth understanding of these people, we would loosen our grip on the White concepts and White behaviors that continue to consume the bulk of our time and energy. We’ll also look for his views on the hoopla around cannabis legalization.
