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 Jasmine Iona Brown. Ms. Brown is a Seattle, Washington artist and mother of a black son. She recently had images of her teenage son, Jaymin, reading a book while wearing a hoodie – and homage to Trayvon Martin, who was killed in 2012, posted all throughout the Capitol Hill area of Seattle. Not long after, her portraits were mutilated, in one instance, her son’s image was totally defaced as if her has been devoured leaving only his sneakers. Ms. Brown’s artwork was replaced, only to be vandalized again. Tyrone Baason wrote about this incident for the Seattle Times, noting: “It’s unclear who’s behind the vandalism. But if this is how people respond to harmless pictures of her son, Brown wonders, how does that bode for Jaymin himself?” We’ll ask Ms. Brown how this incident has changed her understanding of White Supremacy. Incidentally, Gus is very familiar with this area of Seattle, as he’s been a Capitol Hill resident for nearly a full calendar year in response to the great flood of 2017.
The C.O.W.S. Radio Program is specifically engineered for black & non-white listeners – Victims of White Supremacy. The purpose of this program is to provide Victims of White Supremacy with constructive information and suggestions on how to counter Racist Woman & Racist Man.
