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.
The White “sheriff” Peyton Manning vanquished (black) Panther Cam Newton and the Carolina football squad. In the subsequent days, Whites have invested equal time gloating over Newton’s defeat and rebuking his Trayvonesque press conference as well as Beyonce’s halftime performance of her new single “Formation.” Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani and others have branded the Grammy-winning vocalist a “racist” and protested in front of NFL headquarters for allowing her to perform a tribute to the Black Panther Party. Speaking of the Big Apple and police terrorism, NYPD officer Pete Liang was convicted for the 2014 killing of Akai Gurley. Liang could face up to 15 years in prison. The Gurley killing took place within weeks of the non-indictment of Michael Brown Jr.’s killer. This week Attorney General Loretta Lynch and the Department of Justice announced their intent to sue the City of Ferguson for failure to comply with the federal guidelines for reforming the police department that terrorized and financially extorted black citizens. Speaking of antiblack, the trailer for The Purge 3 was released.
