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 p eople. We’ll examine news reports from the past seven days and – hopefully – promote a constructive dialog.
Fourteen months after the slaying of Michael Brown Jr. and weeks of tear gas and unrest in the streets of Ferguson and St. Louis, Missouri, black churches are being deliberately burned. A total of seven churches have been terrorized in the last month. A $9,000 reward has been offered – although Darren Wilson and Daniel Holtzclaw received a lot more money for brutalizing black citizens. Racists fumed about black actors in the latest Star Wars installment and Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe being awarded the Chinese Peace Prize. The vigorous protests of black scholars in South Africa produced a freeze on tuition fees for education. Their US counterparts have called attention to the racist obstacles to academic excellence facing black students on this side of the planet. And everyone should make time to read “The Strange Case of Anna Stubblefield;” failure to recognize Whites as sexual predators is a huge error.
