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.
One week after Hurricane Harvey eviscerated the Houston, Texas area, Hurricane Irma – the most powerful storm to hit the United States in over 75 years – is poised to wreak cataclysmic destruction on the state of Florida. Flood damage and toxic leaks have left many black and non-white Texans in a state of dire emergency. Most of these victims have no flood insurance, which only intensifies the devastation. As with many emergencies, a number of Black Floridians and Texans were unable to escape the path of destruction. In addition to the hurricanes and a monstrous earthquake in Mexico, United States political attention locked on President Donald J. Trump’s decision to end President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which allowed 800,000 undocumented children to remain in the country and work legally. Suspected Racists have seized on this issue; there’ve been Whites marching and shouting across the land. Gus witnessed two racist suspects brandishing signs in support of “DACA” on a Seattle, Washington highway overpass this week.
