No passport is needed for today's adventure to Lagos, Nigeria. Join Queen Sunny Honey and her Tinder-tales from the Motherland perspective. Time to bust the myths that Africans are living in huts, and deal with the reality that Nigeria looks like NYC.

The Context of White Supremacy hosts our Thursday weekly caucus on Workplace Racism. This broadcast is specifically constructed to increase our problem-solving abilities and to codify how black people think, speak, act and manage our emotions while at work. Any listeners who have calculated the best techniques to minimize conflict with White and/or non-white co-workers, avoid demotions, write-ups, terminations or the other typical problems we experience under Racist work conditions should be first to dial in and share details. We always welcome the experiences of Black “entrepreneurs;” please, report how being “self employed” changes your contact with Whites on the job. We’ll hear counter-racist strategies from listeners as well as individual reflections from your own work environment. Gus encourages non-white people to keep a journal of your workplace experiences. Writing down your thoughts or observations is more reliable than memory, and the act of writing can help organize and clarify your thinking about events. We’ll also request that non-white listeners share significant portions of policy and procedure from your current place of employment.
