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 fourth study session on Stephen Kantrowitz’s, Ben Tillman And The Reconstruction of White Supremacy. Benjamin “Pitchfork” Tillman is one of South Carolina’s most celebrated sons. He’s a former governor, US senator, co-founder of Clemson University and Winthrop University, and an unabashed antiblack terrorist. He reminisced about his involvement in the murder and torture of black citizens and inspired White Supremacist legal codes across the country. The June 17th Terrorist assault on Mother Emanuel A.M.E. placed South Carolina under tremendous inquiry. The Associated Press reported, “South Carolina House Speaker Jay Lucas… won’t allow the debate that brought down the Confederate flag to extend to any other public property.” This includes Tillman’s shrines at the South Carolina capitol, Clemson, and Winthrop, which remain protected symbols of White Terrorism. Last week’s session detailed the Hamburg Massacre of 1976. At least six black citizens and a white man were killed in an orchestrated campaign of White savagery and intimidation. Ben Tillman was indicted – but not prosecuted – for his participation in the slaughter. This is the South Carolina heritage that gave birth to Dylann Roof.
