Good Evening, peeps!  Welcome to the latest episode of The Mid Week in Review, courtesy of Afronerd Radio airing this Wednesday at 7:30pm EST. Join Dburt and Capt. Kirk as they discuss this (mid) week's issues:  a recent article from The Root, delves further into the "Superheroes are White and Thugs are Black" meme as The Fantastic Four film featuring actor, Michael B. Jordan approaches; aspring rapper, Chet Hanks (son of Academy Award winning actor Tom Hanks) is asserting his right to say the n-word; two WW1 soldiers (of Jewish and Black ethnicities) once overlooked acts of bravery due to the racism/ant-semitism of the period receive recognition from POTUS now; Bruce, now Caitlyn Jenner has a very public reveal; The team reviews the USA Network's upcoming TV thriller series, Mr. Robot which was released a preview on YouTube; an African-American Queens, NY resident asks for the return of NYC's "stop and frisk" policies in the wake of the death of his nephew due to gun violence; Dburt still has yet another take on how some POC misinterpret "respectability politics"; hypocrisy alert-2016 presidential hopeful and reknowned neurosurgeon, Dr. Ben Carson appearing on a t-shirt with Dr. King raises eyebrows (I guess past depictions of Biggie/Tupac with various Black political heroes is ok, huh?); a Stanford University study affirms that Black students get punished more harshly than their White counterparts based on unconscious teachers' biases.
