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.
This week marked the final time President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will occupy the White House for Thanksgiving. The prelude to turkey day was a deluge of handwringing over the looming Trump administration and how much influence the Alt-Right, White Nationalists will wield. The log of flagrantly Racist acts explicitly connected to Trump or conspicuously concurrent with his electoral triumph grows daily. Former Oklahoma City Police officer and convicted serial rapist Daniel Holtzclaw lost the trial for his freedom. But the disgraced sexual predator has a coalition of supporters who’ve financed the erection of a billboard suggesting Holtzclaw’s innocence. Entertainment icon Kanye West halted a California concert to share his view on the presidential election and his theoretical support of Trump. Soon there after, West reportedly agreed to seek medical attention for “stress and exhaustion.” #BlackMentalHealth.
