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.
George E. Curry, former editor of the National Newspaper Publishers Association and Emerge magazine, died August 20th at the age of 69. Alice Jervay Thatch remembered his unwavering commitment to counter-racism. “George Curry was a part of NNPA’s effort to gain pardons for the Wilmington Ten. On the day NNPA announced at the National Press Club our intent to secure those pardons, George interviewed Wilmington Ten leader Dr. Ben Chavis onstage. It brought tears to our eyes, including Ben’s. Later, Ben had to admit that this was the most emotional interview he had experienced and the first time he had cried in public!” Eleven years after the levee failure and Hurricane Katrina, Louisiana is again suffering catastrophic flooding; General Russel Honoré reports that more than 100,000 homes have been destroyed. Nate Parker has supplanted Bill Cosby as the face of rape culture. Parker has not been convicted of any sexual crimes and a has film slated for release in weeks, but what’s become primary are the unsubstantiated allegations of a dead White woman.
