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 hosts the weekly Compensatory Call-In. We encourage non-white listeners to dial in with their codified concepts, new terms, observations, research findings, workplace problems or triumphs, and/or suggestions on how best to Replace White Supremacy With Justice ASAP. We’ll use these sessions to hone our use of words as tools to reveal truth, neutralize White people. We’ll examine news reports from the past seven days and – hopefully – promote a constructive dialog.
The first full week of 2015 was rough on journalists. ESPN’s Stuart Scott succumbed to his battle with cancer (and Racism); he was 49. In France, the satirical Charlie Hebdo publication was attacked, which resulted in 12 fatalities. Four of those suspected in this attack were killed by French authorities. Many Whites in the United States have focused a good bit of time on this reported act of terrorism, but have been almost unanimously silent about the bombing of a Colorado NAACP office. Colorado, land of the Columbine massacre and James Homes‘ 2012 theater shooting. Amidst an ongoing NYPD “work stoppage,” former New York Governor Mario Cuomo and NYPD officer Wenjian Liu were both buried. Mayor De Blasio’s black wife, Chirlane McCray, was severely chided for “inappropriate” funeral attire. A Ferguson grand juror is contesting the imposed gag order, to share details about Bob Mucullogh’s handling of Michael Brown,Jr’s shooting death.
