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 program is specifically engineered to improve our problem-solving abilities and to refine how black people think, speak, act and control our emotions while on the job. Any listeners who have unearthed the best techniques to minimize conflict with White and/or non-white co-workers, avoid demotions, write-ups, terminations or the other usual troubles we experience under Racist work conditions should be first to call in and share specifics. We always welcome the experiences of Black “entrepreneurs;” please, report how being “self employed” alters your contact with Whites on the job. We’ll hear counter-racist recommendations from listeners as well as individual reflections from your own work environment. Gus encourages non-white people to document our workplace experiences. Recording your thoughts and workplace incidents is more trustworthy than memory, and the act of writing can help organize and refine your understanding. We’ll also request that non-white listeners share important portions of policy and procedure from your current place of employment.
CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE 564943#
