The Context of White Supremacy hosts the weekly forum on Neutralizing Workplace Racism. We'll continue to bolster our techniques for countering Racist attacks and accusations while solving problems without creating new problems on the job. In the olden days before the rona, Gus T. welcomes Marcia Chatelain to discuss her book Franchise: The Golden Arches in Black America. The book examines how the burger conglomerate became entrenched in black residential areas and the struggles black franchise owners encountered - being restricted to poor locations for stores, getting restaurants with higher overhead, and being left out of national advertising campaigns. Fast forward, and McDonald's is facing a billion dollar lawsuit from 52 ex-franchise owners. The Victims allege they experienced White Supremacy/Racism for decades that was so crippling, one litigant said, "That acquiring a location from McDonald's was a 'financial suicide mission.'" This would be another illustration of non-white people not being able to escape White Supremacy by owning a business. We'll also discuss how the election and health pandemic continue to reshape the work environment. Listeners continue to report "sensitivity trainings" and other tacky gathers where Racism is discussed in a insincere, deceptive manner. Do not be fooled into "running off at the mouth" on the job about the elections, the protests, or any matters related to Racism. #BlackSelfRespect INVEST in The COWS – Cash App:$TheCOWS CALL IN NUMBER: 605.313.5164 CODE 564943#
