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 fourth study session on Jeffrey Toobin’s The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson. This 1996 New York Times bestseller enjoyed two different waves of success. It was critically acclaimed during the initial mid-90’s publication and enjoyed re-newed success following the wildly successful 2016 FX miniseries – which is based on Toobin’s work. Toobin compiled three glorious decades of journalism, spawned from his coverage of the Simpson trial. He wrote beloved books on the Supreme Court and authored a scathing indictment of President Donald J. Trump. Things were triumphant until the year of the rona. While participating in a live Zoom conference with prominent White journalists, Toobin exposed his penis and began masturbating. He was initially suspended by the New Yorker. After a weeks of investigation, Toobin was terminated. We’ll keep this in mind while reading his account of the most well documented, most watched court trial of all time. Last week’s session covered the infamous June 17, 1994 Ford Bronco procession. Toobin specifies how residential areas with higher populations of White people were less likely to have cheering throngs along the roadside waving at O.J. While millions watched to see if The Juice wold “blow his brains out,” Robert Shapiro and Robert Kardashian – both lawyers representing Simpson – divulged lots of information that would likely violate attorney-client privilege. We’ll pay attention to as many details as possible, while studying the buildup to the “Trial of the Century.”
