Harambe(e)!.....unfortunately, has a double meaning, folks. Welcome to the latest episode of our Mid Week in Review podcast, airing this Wednesday at 7:30pm EST-powered by the good folks at Afronerd Radio Machine Works. Pull up a chair and a refreshing mint julep as you listen to the sonic analysis laid forth by your hosts, Dburt and Capt. Kirk regarding the following topics: the death of a beloved Gorilla (named Harambe) at the Cincinnati Zoo in order to save a child has sparked controversy; Conservative author/pundit, Ann Coulter, whose business model is all about controversy, raised the ire of many on social media by referring to Asian-Americans as "Mandarins" (racist, much?); the Roots TV series reboot airs this week as numerous critics assert that the time has past for cinematic slave narratives; and in even more racial news-a Chinese detergent commercial appears to be racially insensitive toward those with dark(er) skin; Dburt opines on the recent shooting incident that took place during rapper, T.I.'s concert at NYC's famed Irving Plaza and lastly, Harvard grad, Donovan Livingston's speech is certainly worthy of Afronerd's Blue Area recognition. Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
