Listen to your hosts, Dburt and Capt. Kirk expound on the following (mid) weekly issues: Yale University is renaming its Calhoun College (originally named after the US VP and slavery advocate, John C Calhoun) to honor noted computer scientist and US Navy Rear Admiral, Dr. Grace Hopper-somehow, FOX news correspondent, Geraldo Rivera doesn't approve; iconic Jazz and R&B vocalist, Al Jarreau passess suddenly at 76; is Pres. Trump's creation of an HBCU focused executive order meant to "one up" Pres. Obama's relations with AA colleges from the preceding administration?; in a Blue Area/Black business moment-a Nigerian entrepreneur launches KEEX, an Africa themed footwear brand with goal to bolster the manufacturing sector in Nigeria; comedian/actor, Nick Cannon quits Americs's Got Talent (AGT) because the show inhibits his "Blackness"; Dburt comments on two noted interviews this week, Crazy Legs aka Richard Colon of the legendary B-Boy hip hop dance troupe, Rock Steady Crew visits Sway in the Morning and noted author, Malcolm Gladwell (Outliers, Blink) stops by The Breakfast Club; more Trump shenanigans-out like Flynn-the president's National Security Advisor resigns over "alternative" facts; And lastly, in racist tech/nerd related news, extreme Swedish Youtuber, "PewDiePie" loses his show and Disney sponsorship for an anti-semetic (his prior N-word usage didn't have the same affect apparently) video and White nationalist, David Duke apparently doesn't like Captain America's (Chris Evans) POC dating habits.
