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.
As opposed to rehashing scenes from Dr. King’s “I Have A Dream” speech, many used this week’s Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday to protest the same problems with Racism that Dr. King died countering. If “justice rolls down like water,” we hope it’s not from Flint, Michigan’s water supply. The poisoned water in the predominantly black city is attracting growing attention and calls for Suspected Racist Governor Rick Snyder to resign. Speaking of justice, Oklahoma City police officer and convicted sexual predator Daniel Holtzclaw was sentenced to 263 consecutive years in prison for multiple counts of rape and sexual terrorism of black females. His attorney has vowed to appeal. And echoing the suspicious deaths of Sandra Bland and Kimberly Randle-King, Gynnya McMillen, a 16-year-old black female, was reportedly found dead in a Kentucky juvenile detention center. Officials have released few details. Speaking of black people dying behind bars, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania legend and MOVE member Phil Africa was also reported to have died in prison at the age of 59.
