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.
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia chose the middle of Black History Month to die. The Supreme Court vacancy has restructured the 2016 presidential election and Pres. Obama’s final year in office. Justice Scalia’s death has also provided an excuse for Racists to further abuse Justice Clarence Thomas and the president. Reverberations of convicted sexual terrorist Daniel Holtzclaw were felt in California, where two LAPD officers have been arrested and charged with repeatedly raping four women over the course of several years. The racial classification of the victims has not been released. Like Beyonce’s Super Bowl demonstration, Kendrick Lamar used his Grammy performance to call attention to the ongoing war against black people. Speaking of terrorism, synchronized with the PBS release of Stanley Nelson’s documentary on the Black Panther Party, Albert Woodfox was finally released from Angola penitentiary in Louisiana. He served 43 years – including decades in solitary confinement.
