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 Dr. Frances Cress Welsing for the 24th time. Dr. Welsing is a third generation physician, general and child psychiatrist and author of The Isis Papers: The Keys To The Colors. Millions around the globe have focused on the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, Jr. in Ferguson, Missouri; this incident has forced many Whites and non-whites to acknowledge that Racism remains a major problem. We’ll ask Dr. Welsing what has stood out most to her during the two weeks since Brown’s murder; we’re eager to hear her thoughts on how black people – including Pres. Obama – have responded to this conflagration. Thus far, she has concluded that Racists want black people to “riot.” We’re also interested in hearing Dr. Welsing’s thoughts on the eruption of black people being gunned down this summer – Ezell Ford, Eric Garner, John Crawford, III, Dante Parker, and Kajieme Powell. This coincides with more than a thousand reported deaths on the continent of Africa because of Ebola.
