Our apologies for our cancelled Comic Shoppe and Mid Week in Review broadcasts, however we are back in full effect tonight for Sunday's show @7pm eastern standard time.  The topics up for discussion on Afronerd Radio Featuring Captain Kirk are as follows:  we unpack yet another story of minstrelsy and stereotypes-the latest Seagram's Gin ad campaign entails customers receiving "do rags" to accompany their purchase of the popular liquor brand (is this targeted "lower tier" marketing....ya think?); Dburt and "The Capitan" discuss the deleterious effect the minstrel business machine (Maury Povich, Dr. Drew, various court shows, etc ) is having the Black imagery;  a recent Onion News piece attempts to parody the concept of the Black nerd....but was the joke really more truthful than they had a intended?;  a NY Times article highlights the achievements of three young men of color who have attained "master" status in the world of chess; Bill Maher vs Elizabeth Hasselbeck on the view; more Occupy Wall Street news and lastly, an 8 year old Afro-Brit has developed a successful internet business centered around his love for playing marbles....whew!  Stop by and give us a call at 646-915-9620.
