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. Lonnie Randolph. Dr. Randolph is a practicing optometrist and the president of the South Carolina chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. Dr. Randolph and the local NAACP have been working diligently to oppose the economic terrorism targeting South Carolina State University. A South Carolina House subcommittee recently called for the historically black institution to be closed for two years, and the state Legislative Black Caucus has declared a lack of confidence in the SCSU President Thomas Elzey; he was placed on administrative leave this week. While the university faculty and staff may have room for improvement, it’s been reported that powerful Whites have sabotaged South Carlina State by withholding funds and rewarding “schools for building programs that compete with S.C. State.” We’ll also get Dr. Randolph’s thoughts on the South Pointe High School attack as well as George Stinney.
