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 third study session on Lothrop Stoddard’s world renown work, The Rising Tide Of Color Against White World Supremacy. In the days before her death, counter-racist scientist Dr. Frances Cress Welsing strongly encouraged black people to conduct a scholarly review of Stoddard to better grasp White Supremacy in the 21st century. A journalist and Harvard-educated historian, Stoddard was an intellectual titan during the early 1900’s. He was a prominent advocate of Eugenics – the belief that better Whites should have more children, while lesser Whites and especially non-white people should not procreate. During last week’s session, Stoddard focused on the history and possible challenges posed by Asians. He maintains that there is an “instinctive Asiatic feeling” amongst the non-white people of the “Near and Middle” East. Stoddard repeatedly warns that any constructive alliance between Asian people or with other non-white people should be regarded as a serious menace to White Domination. When discussing Muslims, Stoddard explicitly noted that the issue was the preponderance of dark followers of Islam. The religious practice represented an organizational structure that could codify large numbers of non-white people – again, a threat to White Supremacy. Listeners and Gus have concluded that much of this text reads like ostentatious White Supremacy propaganda: highfalutin verbiage about the swagger of the White Race, naked contempt for heathen coloreds. We hope students of Dr. Welsing will actively engage in these sessions.
