Just another one of those "straight with no chaser" moments, people! Welcome to a new episode of Afronerd Radio's Mid Week in Review (MWIR) podcast. Listen to your inimitable hosts, Dburt and Capt. Kirk wax about this week's topical data: Dburt revists the Tarzan mythos with predictions for how actor, Samuel L. Jackson's character (based on historical renaissance man George Washington Williams) might be portrayed in the upcoming film; British supporters of the legendary nurse, Florence Nightingale are none too pleased with the vigorous focus on British/Jamaican nurse, Mary Seacole being exalted and placed in the annals of Great Britain's history; our thoughts on the Cleveland Cavaliers playoff triumph. Does "King Lebron" remain in Ohio? Should men cry over sport accomplishments versus medical/scholastic/life altering-adversarial achievements? Can we finally cancel notions of "plantation olympics" (Dburt's code word for primitive colorism antics); a forthcoming UK horror film, Girl with All the Gifts garners quite a bit of social media attention partly based on it's young Black female protagonist; the Senate rejects gun measures in the wake of last week's Orlando, FL massacre and lastly, just what does the hashtag, #AirbnbWhileBlack mean?
