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 welcomes the return of Dr. Niyana Rasayon. A father, behavioral neuroscientist, neuropsychologist, and author, Dr. Rasayon is a North Carolina A&T alumnus and one of our favorite guests over the years. We’ve previously discussed his written works – The Awakening and Reality Check, and are always anxious to get his thoughts on current events as well as suggestions on what black people can do to solve our problems. We’ll get his thoughts on the FBI’s concern about “Black Identity Extremists.” A bureau document outlined a threat posed by Black people who are angered about police abuse and may be motivated to retaliate with violence. While black people are branded with new labels and subjected to more criminal scrutiny, Whites like Stephen Paddock keep stockpiling weapons of mass destruction. We’ll ask Dr. Rasayon about the carnage in Las Vegas that left nearly 60 people dead. We’ll ask if President Donald Trump’s toxic political climate influenced the shooting and what’s the purpose and impact of the president verbal attacks on Black people like Florida Congresswoman Frederica Wilson and former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
