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.
The final week of October saw the passing of musical genius Fats Domino and legendary actor Robert Guillaume. Domino, a Louisiana native limited to a fourth grade education because of racism, sold millions of records and survived Hurricane Katrina and the 2005 levee failure. Guillaume acted in television and film for decades and challenged restraints on what black entertainers could do. Speaking of prohibition, President Donald Trump announced plans to address the White opioid epidemic as a “public health emergency.” A Virginia high school was in crisis after video showed White middle school students simulating the rape of black children while shouting they would “fuck the black out” of them. Sensitivity training is planned. The “medical apartheid” against black people continues as the Los Angeles Times reported on the staggering maternal mortality rate for black mothers in the US. There has not been a state of emergency declared or millions in funding to safeguard expecting black mothers.
