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 Melvin Poole. Mr. Poole is a sixty-five year old black male and South Carolina resident. He’s the former president of the Rock Hill, South Carolina NAACP branch. The New York Times published a chunky report on South Carolina’s Friendship 9. This group of black people were a part of a local and national sit-in protests against Racism. Nine black males were convicted of trespassing and sentenced to 30 days labor in a county prison (slave) labor camp. Some of the Victims believe these convictions caused them long term problems and are long overdue for being vacated. Whites are making a production out of acknowledging one of their acts of terrorism, and this event is a part of a broader White effort “to bestow hometown-hero status on civil rights protesters who were once shunned, jailed or beaten [or killed].” Mr. Poole concluded that Whites are using this occasion to camouflage ongoing, 21st century operations of Racism. We’ll get his thoughts on George Stinney as well South Carolina pillars of education: The Citadel and Clemson.
