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.
The first week of Black History Month began with monkey t-shirts in Sacramento and a dramatization of one of the finest hours of negro triumph: the OJ Simpson trial. Speaking of unpopular black football players, Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers are hours from grappling against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos in the biggest ball game of the year. Newton seeks to become the second black quarterback to win the Super Bowl in the last three years. Speaking of games, while Hillary Clinton and Ted Cruz were crowned the victors at the Iowa Caucus, author and MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry was confronted with White Terrorism. A Race Soldier moved uncomfortably close to Harris-Perry before saying, “Nazi Germany,” and “Rise to power.” The Racist Suspect fled the scene after security was alerted. And continuing the trend of devastating losses of a young 2016, Maurice White of Earth Wind & Fire died this week at the age of 74. NPR’s Jason King writes, “Maurice White’s clever idea in forming EWF was to power forward with an ethical black music that could force us to keep our heads up to the sky when it mattered most.”
