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.
Kenneth P. Thompson, the first black district attorney of Brooklyn, New York, died this week. He was a husband, a father, and 50 years-old. Unfortunately, many have used this time to disparage Mr. Thompson’s work, voicing frustration with the Peter Liang case. Liang, a former NYPD officer, was convicted earlier this year for the 2014 killing of an unarmed black male, Akai Gurley. Liang was not sentenced to jail time. Thompson’s critics overlook his years of counter-racist work, which includes convicting the White savage who anally raped Abner Louima in 1997. Thompson also stopped prosecuting low level cannabis offenses in his jurisdiction and ” agreed to overturn 21 convictions and re-examine more than 100 in one of the most ambitious efforts of its kind.” Because of his labor, some inmates who were caged for decades were liberated. Mr. Thompson wasn’t the only black public servant having a tough time in New York. Black firefighters l launched a $150 million law suit against the FDNY alleging racial discrimination. In the Caribbean, Haiti continues to suffer from the catastrophe of Hurricane Matthew. The island of black folks are getting much less sympathy than Nate Parker’s deceased White accuser.
