Greeting to all our long time supporters!  Stay tuned as the Afronerd.com/AfronerdRadio.com machine goes through some much needed changes (i.e. an upcoming reorganized web presence).  Keeping matters terse, however, join Dburt and Capt. Kirk this Wednesday at 7:30pm as they discuss the following current event laden "fauna": Dburt weighs in a bit heavier on the concept of "respectability politics" and how (in a way) Black folk should move toward this ideology and not away from it; Min. Louis Farrakhan weighs in on Ferguson, MO, unfortunately proving that POC need new ideas; African-American albino male model, Shaun Ross has an interesting perspective on the lack of diversity in fashion; recent polling shows that Black NYers desire increased policing even in the wake of the Eric Garner police brutality case; a Time magazine article about "Negrophobia" elicits a strong twitter response and backlash and lastly, a new HuffPost piece highlights a Northwestern University study that posits that the achievement gap between rich and poor students may close through music education.  Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
