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 10th study session on Harriet A. Washington’s awesome publication, Medical Apartheid: The Dark History Of Medical Experimentation On Black Americans From Colonial Times To Present. Washington’s tremendous research unearths intentional, premeditated exploitation of black bodies under the guise of “science.” Washington’s book should permanently alter black people’s interpretation of the scientific developments of whitefolks – like the “crispr” gene editing technology and DNA tracing websites that stockpile genetic material. Last week’s session reminded us that black children are not exempt from savagery of Racist brutes. Washington documented how Whites continued to insist that there was a racial correlation between melanin and crime. The criminalization of black people justified all manner of egregious experiments that exclusively targeted black children. Washington emphasized that Whites found numerous ways to deceive black parents about the nature of these studies so they couldn’t make an informed decision about their child’s participation. Medical Apartheid should be required reading for any and all black people.
