Check out the latest installment of Afronerd Radio's Mid Week in Review podcast airing this Wednesday at 7:30pm EST. Join your hosts, Dburt and Capt. Kirk as they wax about this (mid) week's newest stories and issues: our impressions of the Spring Valley HS police vs student assault video that has gone viral garnering national attention; a self avowed fan of the upcoming Batman vs Superman film has a theory (also viral) positing that Christian Bale may be donning the Bat cowl after all; a recent Daily Beast piece ponders how and why author, Ta-Nehisi Coates has a growing White fanbase while writing from a certain Black perspective; Dr. Ben Carson surges ahead of Donald Trump in the latest national Republican presidential poll; more urban strife-teenager gets shot in the head near Brooklyn's Barclays Center in what appears to be a gang related melee (Black Lives Matter!...including disruptive/non-compliant HS students..whoa!); more on actor, Harold Perrineau's defense of his daughter over skin tone in a culture of Black Twitter and Hollywood expectations; Dburt tackles the "school to prison pipeline" trope espoused in journalist, Michelle Alexander's The New Jim Crow (shhh....her husband, US Attorney Carter Stewart doesn't agree either). And lastly, Bill Oreilly is right for critiquing Black Lives Matter but wrong about his conclusions (but what does the truth have to do with ratings?). Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
