And as eventful and "geekly" informative as The Comic Shoppe is, there's still more with Afronerd featuring Captain Kirk airing at 7pm eastern standard. Listen to Captain Kirk and Dburt confabulate on the following issues: is there a grain of truth relating to Wisconsin GOP Senator, Glen Grothman's claim that African-Americans really "don't care about Kwanzaa?" ; continuing where we left off from last week's broadcast (Hitler statue causing a stir in Poland, sperm donor might have to pay child support, etc) ; a recent Daily Beast post posits whether Africa's rising economic outlook makes the continent the "new Asia" and lastly, with Django: Unchained's growing popularity, The Root highlights 12 films that tackled slavery as an entertainment device. The fun begins at 6pm sharp!
It's good to talk.
