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 eeest 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.
Yesterday marked the 81st birthday of author and psychiatrist Dr. Frances Cress Welsing. Her theory of White Genetic Annihilation continues to corroborated daily. In the United Stated the clocks were moved forward and Donald J. Trump and Hillary R. Clinton pummeled their opponents during the final Winter primary; both hold sizable delegate leads and look poised for a November tussle for the White House. Once again black people were credited with helping Clinton vanquish Senator Bernie Sanders. Speaking of black political power, President Obama nominated Judge Garland Merrick to fill the SCOTUS vacancy. NPR’s Nina Totenberg noted that the president chose the only White Man on his short list of candidates. Michigan Governor Rick Snyder testified before Congress about the poisoned water in Flint and how his administration has responded. Despite ongoing recall efforts, Mr. Snyder remains employed. And speaking of White men getting off the hook, the continuing trials for the 2013 White Terrorism at San Jose State University illustrate the need for criminal justice reform. Two former White students were sentenced to thirty days in jail or weekend work; they must also complete “50 hours of volunteer work with a nonprofit organization serving the black community and enroll in a cultural awareness program on the African-American experience.” A third White criminal was given probation.
