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 2016 vice presidential debate was held in Prince Edward County, Virginia. Tellingly, this is the same location where Whites deliberately closed their schools for five years to keep black children away from White kids. Continuing the theme, Sunday’s pending debate between Hillary R. Clinton and Donald J. Trump will take place in St. Louis, Missouri; the candidates will spar a few miles from where Michael Brown Jr. was killed by Ferguson police. The drama won’t be confined to politics, as Nate Parker and Ava DuVernay each have new films addressing Racism being released this week. Parker’s The Birth Of A Nation hits the silver screen after months spent flogging the actor and filmmaker for rape accusations nearly two decades old. DuVernay’s acclaimed film, 13th, deconstructs how slavery has been refined, not abolished. Her film reveals how decades of deliberately Racist laws have caged generations of black people. The political performances, box office premiers and the debut of Luke Cage obscured the destruction Hurricane Matthew delivered in Haiti. More than 200 have been reported dead on the island still being punished by the global White minority for Haitian Revolution..
