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 film makers of WHITELANDIA. Whitelandia is a documentary film that investigates the evolution of White Supremacy (Racism) in the state of Oregon. They explore how the 1857 state constitution prohibited black people from being Oregon residents – which directly contributed to 21st century Portland, Oregon being the “whitest large city in the United States.” This broadcast is a result of Bruce Poinsette’s outstanding journalism. He cited allegations aimed at the White filmmakers: [they] alienated some influential voices in the Black community by using people’s material without permission and leading many to falsely believe the film was a Black production. Gus tweeted Mr. Poinsette’s report, and the filmmakers responded. We invited them to The C.O.W.S. to address the confusion and accusations of Racism leveled against them. This program aired at the time the grand jury announced that Darren Wilson (Suspected Race Soldier) will not be indicted for the shooting death of Michael Brown, Jr.
