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.
By Scotty Reid – 2020 Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has oft been criticized in media targeting Black voters for a response he gave to a CNN host when told Sen. Elizabeth Warren supports reparations. Sanders correctly asked the CNN host well what do reparations mean exactly, what specific policy initiatives does Warren support. I recently wrote about a political cartoon targeting the Sanders campaign and Black voters published in August of 2019 that has possible foreign origins.

The Baltimore based non-profit news outlet Real News Network recently spoke with the Sanders campaign’s National Press Secretary Briahna Joy Gray for a segment where among many things, race and reparations were brought up and she was able to articulate clearly on where Sen. Bernard (Bernie) Sanders stands on the issue of reparations and economic justice.
