Compensatory Call InThe Context of White Supremacy hosts the weekly Compensatory Call-In. We encourage non-white listeners to dial in with their codified concepts, new terms, observations, research findings, workplace problems or triumphs, and/or suggestions on how best to Replace White Supremacy With Justice ASAP. We’ll use these sessions to hone our use of words as tools to reveal truth, neutralize White people. We’ll examine news reports from the past seven days and – hopefully – promote a constructive dialog.

Whites celebrated Halloween 2016 in style. A White NCAA football spectator brandished an effigy of President Obama being lynched – he was allowed to remain at the ball game. A University of Arkansas student dawned blackface to dressed up as Bill Cosby – he was later expelled. Speaking of ghouls and tricks, the 2016 presidential election nears a merciful conclusion. The trend of black people being misused and mauled throughout the campaign continued as a Mississippi black church was vandalized; “Vote Trump” was spray painted on the side of the sanctuary. White terrorists didn’t confine their barbarism to black places of worship, as two Iowa police officers were reportedly shot and killed by a White man. Scott Michael Greene was “detained without incident;” Law enforcement apparently didn’t feel threatened or concerned for their safety even though Greene had a history of conflict with police – including being ejected from a high school football game for brandishing a confederate flag and haranguing black spectators.

The disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 prompted Racist conjecture about Muslim (non-white) terrorists and Bill Maher’s stale, Racist Jokes about inept Asian drivers. Legendary UK athlete Sol Campbell visited BBC Radio to discuss his accusation that if he were White, it would have benefited his prolific soccer career. Evidence of habitual, global Classroom Racism continues to grow astronomically. Students at Oregon State University, South Pudget Sound Community College, Harvard and Oxford waged various campaigns to address the systemic and humiliating abuse of black and non-white students and faculty. Canadian black veterans called on black and non-white people to exit the military until White Supremacy has been totally eradicated. And the former New York City fire commissioner confessed that a culture of Racism exists within the Big Apple’s fire department.

Five Injured,Hospitalized After Police Brutality – Workers On Indefinite Hunger Fast By Anuj Wankhede

The Prime Minister of India trots around the globe and proudly signs contracts for uranium supplies to India He himself visits or calls upon delegations from various continents and nations like Australia, Canada, France, USA, Kazakhstan etc. to discuss uranium related issues. Sadly, he is turning a blind eye to illegalities and gross human rights violations happening right under his nose and in his own country. Is it because the original landowners (the adivasis) are less human than white skinned foreigners? Read on…..

Turamdi, Nr. Jamshedpur, Jharkhand, India: The atrocities perpetuated by the Uranium Corporation of India (UCIL) management against hapless and displaced indigenous people in Jharkhand continue unabated.

Behaving in a roughshod manner, mindless of any concept of natural justice and is behaving in a completely illegal manner with the people around the mining areas which is tantamount to Human Rights violations and the Acts on Atrocities against Adivasis.

After acquiring land and causing untold havoc with the lives, medical and social fabric of locals since 1960’s in Jadugoda, UCIL trained its eyes on the Turamdi mines area which is about 20kms away from Jadugoda and a mere 5kms from the bustling industrial city of Jamshedpur (Tatanagar).

The Turamdi open cast mine

UCIL acquired vast stretches of land for building the Turamdi and Bandohurang   mines besides building a huge tailing pond, a milling and a uranium processing plant since the 1990’s

Gross irregularities have occurred during the land acquisition process. Many adivasis (indigenous) people are still not adequately compensated nor have they received the promised “permanent” jobs at UCIL. In fact, people who did not belong to the Project Affected People (PAP) category have got jobs reserved for these PAP families.

At the Turamdi mines, there was an original promise of hundreds of permanent jobs mentioned in the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and Detailed Project report. However, only a few permanent jobs were created when the mines were operationalized and the balance jobs were offered on a contract basis to the displaced people.
After going through two changes in the contracts lasting over the last eight odd years, now these experienced contract workers are being rendered jobless by UCIL which has negotiated a new contract with another company from Gujarat. The new contractor claims that it will neither hire the original workers nor will it need as many workers as were hired before.

To add insult to injury, now,UCIL is offering these contractual jobs to people who have no experience of working in uranium mines nor do these people belong to the project affected areas thereby causing one to wonder if UCIL is working in the interests of the contractors rather than the workers. Hiving off complete mining activities to an outsourced contractor – especially in hazardous industries – is also tantamount to negligence and an open invitation to potential disaster.
The contract workers have been made to work for years in core production areas of the mining business and to summarily discharge from duty is against the labor laws of the country. Prima facie, these workers are eligible for permanent job status with ALL attendant facilities. Now they are being thrown out of their only source of livelihood.

Ever since news of job losses was conveyed to the contract workers earlier this year, they have been on a silent sit-in demonstration at the mines and have been trying to negotiate with the UCIL management and the newly appointed contractor.None of their pleas have been heard by either party who have adamantly stuck to their stand of not allowing the earlier workers back to work.

Displaced and jobless families on a silent sit-in (Oct 2013)

Upon seeing that their jobs were being offered to people having no relationship with any PAP (some even hail from neighbouring states) the desperate and aggrieved workers approached for help from the district administration, labour office. They even met the Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren a few days back who asked his officers to intervene in this matter for an early and amicable solution. Even this did not move the District Collector who maintained that this is an issue between UCIL management and the workers and he would not intervene!

Left to fend for themselves and nobody to listen to their pleas, the workers then moved their agitation to the gates of the project and continued their peaceful and silent sit-in protest. Perhaps as retribution to their actions, the UCIL summarily dismissed a few permanent workers from its staff on vague charges creating complete unrest at the mining site. If the UCIL management imagined that dismissing its permanent workers would create a rift between them and the contract workers, it was grossly mistake. It in fact, brought them together to fight for the legitimate rights of the workers.

But the workers were not prepared for the sudden and brutal police action against them on the morning of November 21 st  2013 when police at the behest of the state administration/UCIL management began to beat them up with lathis (batons) in the process injuring 5 workers so grievously that they had to be hospitalized.

Protest in Ranchi (21st Nov 2013)

Hunger fast – Ranchi 22 Nov 2013

The local workers in association with JMACC (Jharkhand Mines Area Coordination Committee) held a protest march on the same day in the capital city of Ranchi. With no respite from any quarters, the workers have now started an indefinite fast outside the Jharkhand Governors official residence in the hope that they will finally get back their jobs and livelihood.

Their grievances and issues were also studied and found genuine by an independent Fact Finding Team in 2008. They have already lost their lands for no fault of theirs and now they have lost their jobs too – again for no fault. And yet, they have to fight again and again and again for what was and still is their legitimate right.

The Government of India, the Prime Minister’s Office ( to which UCIL reports ) the State & District administration, local police and of course, the top management at UCIL are all equally culpable for this injustice perpetrated on the adivasis who are already dying a slow death due to the radiation from the mining activities.

Don Lemon Orville Lloyd Douglas Interview Why I Hate Being a Black Man – YouTube

Don Lemon Orville Lloyd Douglas Why I Hate Being a Black Man. Don Lemon brought on a black writer who wrote a column titled, “Why I hate being a black man.” Orville Lloyd Douglas explained to Lemon why he wrote such a highly charged column and what it’s like for him being a black man.

Douglas admitted he’s mainly talking about the stereotypes surrounding black men regarding his self-hatred, saying it’s hard for people who don’t conform to the stereotypes of black men to live in society.

Lemon was somewhat baffled by what he was saying, asking him why he doesn’t just let himself define who he is and not worry about other people. Douglas, a Canadian, explained race is handled with kid gloves up there, especially to the “more progressive way” it’s talked about in America.

Lemon credited Douglas for being very brave to come out like he is, especially with all the online hate he’s getting, but also pressed him on rejecting the self-hatred. Lemon said he should just “learn to love being black” and not to “let other people define who you are.”

Douglas also talked about diversity in Canada, as well as racial and social issues that aren’t being dealt with in Toronto. If only they had a competent mayor who could f… oh, wait.

Every time I sit on a crowded street car, bus, or subway train in Toronto, I know I will have an empty seat next to me. It’s like a broken record. Sometimes I don’t mind having the extra space, but other times I feel awkward, uncomfortable, and annoyed.

I know I have good hygiene, I dress appropriately, and I mind my own business. However, recently, I finally became cognizant of why people might fear being around me or in close proximity to me: I am a black male. Although Canadian society presents the façade of multiculturalismthe truth is Canada has a serious problem with the issue of race.

I didn’t realize it until my sister said to me:

Orville, people are afraid of you. You are a six foot tall black man with broad shoulders.

My sister is right, people don’t sit next to me on the street car, the subway or on the bus because they are afraid.

The issue of black self-hatred is something I am supposed to pretend does not exist. However, the great French psychiatrist Frantz Fanon wrote about this issue in his ground breaking book Black Skin White Masks in a chapter called “the Lived Experience of the Black Man”. According to Fanon, the black man is viewed in the third person, and he isn’t seen as a three-dimensional human being. The black man internalizes the perspectives of white society and its negative thoughts about blackness affect his psyche. In the chapter, Fanon discusses a white child calling him the “N word” and how he becomes cognizant of how he is different and viewed as someone people should fear.

There is also a fear by some black people that discussing the issue of self-hatred is a sign of weakness. There is a discourse that black people engender: that black is beautiful. But the truth is, the image of blackness is ugly – at least it’s perceived that way. There is nothing special or wonderful about being a black male – it is a life of misery and shame.

The issue of black self-hatred is usually depicted from a female point of view. There are documentaries such as Dark Girls which aired on Oprah’s OWN network earlier this year, in which black women discuss their feelings of self hatred for having dark skin. There are numerous books, articles, documentaries, and essays published by black female writers describing black self-hated. Black women are not afraid to speak out about their self-loathing, yet for some reason, black men are silent about our own contempt for what we are.

A lot of black men don’t want to acknowledge the feelings of disgust we have for ourselves. It is considered emasculating to even admit the existence of such thoughts. I think my own self-hated manifests from the exterior, from the outside world. It is born out of the despair and the unhappiness I see within a lot of young black men.

I can honestly say I hate being a black male. Although black people like to wax poetic about loving their label I hate “being black”. I just don’t fit into a neat category of the stereotypical views people have of black men. In popular culture black men are recognized in three areas: sports, crime, and entertainment. I hate rap music, I hate most sports, and I like listening to rock music such as PJ Harvey, Morrissey, and Tracy Chapman. I have nothing in common with the archetypes about the black male.

There is so much negativity and criminal suspicion associated with being a black male in Toronto. Yet, I don’t have a criminal record, and I certainly don’t associate with criminals. In fact, I abhor violence, and I resent being compared to young black males (or young people of any race) who are lazy, not disciplined, or delinquent. Usually, when black male youth are discussed in Toronto, it is about something going wrong.

Honestly, who would want to be black? Who would want people to be terrified of you and not want to sit next to you on public transportation?

Who would want to have this dark skin, broad nose, large thick lips, and wake up in the morning being despised by the rest of the world?

A lot of the time I feel like my skin color is like my personal prison, something that I have no control over, for I am judged just because of the way I look.

Not discussing the issue doesn’t mean it is going to go away. In fact, by ignoring the issue, it simply lurks underneath the surface. I believe a dialogue about self hatred should be brought to the fore in the public sphere, so that some sort of healing and the development of true non-label based pride can occur.

Of course, I do not want to have these feelings, to have these dark thoughts about being a black man. However, I cannot deny that this is the way I feel. I don’t want to be ashamed of being a black man; I just want to be treated as an individual based on the content of my character, and not just based on the colour of my skin.
