The C.O.W.S. Global Sunday Talk On Racism 06/18/17

Sunday, June 18th 3:00PM Eastern/ 12:00PM Pacific

The Context of White Supremacy hosts our monthly Global Sunday Talk On Racism. This broadcast is specifically designed to encourage participation from Victims of Racism outside the United States and/or non-white people who are not able to dial us during our typical program time. We’ll discuss the Grenfell Tower Fire in London, England. The twenty-four story tower was quickly gutted by fire. As of Sunday, June 17th, 58 deaths have been attributed to the blaze, and authorities expect the final number of fatalities to be higher. “Gentrification” has greatly reduced the number of black residents in the area, but high number of black people continued to live at Grenfell Tower. Many of the residents had protested the unsafe living conditions of the complex and predicted a catastrophic fire for years. This incident calls to mind, the 1981 New Cross fire, which sparked the infamous Brixton Riots when black Britons and police clashed. We’ll also make time to discuss Theresa May’s dreadful showing in the recent election.
