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 our seventh and final study session on Dr. Gerald Horne’s biography, Paul Robeson: The Artist As Revolutionary. Dr. Horne holds the Moores Professorship of History and African American Studies at the University of Houston. He’s authored a bounty of texts and articles that detail what Racism/White Supremacy is and how it operates globally. His 2016 treatment of Robeson chronicles the latter’s illustrious achievements as a linguist, scholar, athlete and entertainer. Robeson used the his enormous bounty of talent to address the problem of Racism. Last week’s installment provided even more evidence of the FBI’s extensive targeting of Robeson. He was essentially tracked for the duration of his adult life, and Dr. Horne documented the numerous times Robeson was called before the U.S. Congress to refute charges of misconduct. Although never charged with a crime, Robeson’s passport was revoked and he was talked about like a rogue. His health and finances deteriorated greatly as a result of this.
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.
