Call in to speak with the host
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.
