The Context of White Supremacy hosts the weekly Compensatory Call-In.

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.
The eastern United States needed the past week to dig out from the Snowzilla blizzard – as if we needed an extra serving of whiteness. Nate Parker’s epic film on Nat Turner lit up the 2015 Sundance Film Festival; Fox Searchlight peeled off $17.5 million for the highly acclaimed production. Speaking of blacks who were killed, the trial in the shooting death of Akai Gurley began this week in New York City. Non-white (Asian) officer Peter Liang faces manslaughter charges for shooting the unarmed black male in 2014; if convicted he could face up to 15 years in prison. On the opposite side of the country, the White Terrorist showdown in Oregon climaxed with multiple arrests and enforcement officials killing one (Robert Finicum). Some of the armed White thugs remained entrenched on the federal property, despite pleas from their detained White comrades that they surrender. And the Pacific Northwest’s own Macklemore released his ode to “anti-racism,” “White Privilege II.” Whitefolks are much more comfortable – and benefit – from labeling terrorism and total war on black people as a “privilege.”
