The Context of White Supremacy hosts our weekly caucus on Workplace Racism. This broadcast is specifically constructed to strengthen our problem-solving abilities and to codify how black people think, speak, act and control our emotions while on the job. Any listeners who have unearthed the best strategies to minimize hassle with White and/or non-white co-workers, avoid demotions, write-ups, terminations or the other usual problems we experience under Racist work conditions should be first to call in and share specifics. We’re always eager to hear the experiences of Black “entrepreneurs;” please, report on how being “self employed” changes the way you encounter Whites on the job. We’ll hear counter-racist strategies from listeners as well as individual reflections from your own work environment. The holiday season continues, and some of our listeners have angered Whites for refusing to attend office parties. We’ll review counter-racist tactics for office parties or potential gift exchanges. We’ll also request that non-white listeners share significant portions of policy and procedure from your current place of employment.
