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.
Weeks after Hurricanes Irma and Harvey ravaged the Caribbean and coastal regions of the United States, Hurricane Maria pummeled Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and the US Virgin Islands again. This destruction has caused a number of ad hoc lessons about colonialism in the Caribbean. In other natural disasters, Mexico was struck by another devastating earthquake, hundreds are reported dead after the 7.1 magnitude quake. Speaking of first responders, a White Ohio fire fighter, Tyler Roysdon, announced on social media that “if he went inside the burning house of a black man and he had a dog, that he would save the dog first and probably take his time coming back to get the black man.” Roysdon was allowed to resign. Down the road in Missouri, enforcement officials continue to clash with protesters a week after a white officer was exonerated for killing a black male. St. Louis police are accused of calling protesters terrorist and posting a meme calling Black Lives Matter “the klan with a tan.” In the pacific northwest, a Suspected Race Soldier walked the streets of downtown Seattle harassing black citizens and sporting a swastika. He was punched in the face and given a radio interview.
