The Context of White Supremacy hosts our Friday weekly forum on neutralizing Workplace Racism. A number of regions around the globe are continuing the process of allowing some business and workplaces to reopen. All areas of people activity have been disrupted, and workers in all industries are struggling to deal with daily adjustments and new safety hazards. In New Orleans, Louisiana – a location that was labeled as an early “hotspot” in the United States – sanitation workers are on strike protesting unsafe conditions and unacceptable compensation. It’s reported that prisoners are now being employed to compensate for the state’s sanitation needs. We’ll continue to review what measures employers are taking to ensure worker safety, and we’ll encourage listeners to speak up if you think you see unsafe conditions. In Texas, White entrepreneurs are defying orders to remain closed and employing armed security to ensure they remain open for business. There are no reports of Elon Musk hiring armed goons to patrol his California Tesla factory, but he is reportedly defying state law to continue manufacturing environmentally friendly automobiles.
