Moni Bambo/Moni Mayi to our ever faithful and vigilant listeners! Welcome to another fiery and fun fact finding mission courtesy of Afronerd Radio's Mid Week in Review! Join Dburt and Capt, Kirk as they unravel the following current event laden topics: we finally address a recent Esquire blog piece that pondered, "Are Black Superheroes Good for Black People?" ; discussing the untimely passing of actor/comedian, Robin Williams; Dburt waxes on a Brilliant Idiots podcast and their confused analysis of "White privilege"; yet another Black teenager (this time in Ferguson, Missouri) dies at the hands of police (but they're dying by other violent means and in true Afronerdic fashion, does the reason matter when the result is the same?); and in response to the teen's tragic death, a writer for The Root laments on the difficulty of raising Black boys; we finally highlight NY Knickerbocker, Carmelo Anthony's foray into venture capital investing of tech companies as well addressing the urban tech boom rennaissance; Dburt noticed that a new School of Rock music instruction franchise has opened up on Long Island but will minority children be encouraged to take advantage? and lastly, if time permits, perhaps we can continue Saturday's heated discussion relating to the Change.org petition of the record industry for degrading women in the hip hop music genre. Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
