Well citizens, Spring is here...allegedly.  Welcome to the latest chapter 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 place focus on the following (mid) week topics: Rock & Roll icon and pioneer, Check Berry passes at 90; BLM activist/former San Francsico 49ers' QB/free agent, Colin Kaepernick apparently is not getting picked up by any other NFL teams and his friend Spike Lee believes that politics may be the reason for the cool reception;  tech billionaire/Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg pays a visit to noted HBCU, North Carolina A & T State University to discuss diversity (in spite of the fact that FB has 145 Black employees out of 8,000...charity begins at home);  a recent Black Voices piece asserts that African-American Millennials are optimistic in the face of current racial animus and/or oppression; and in "more evidence that Armageddon is real thing" news, a Mass. college student-athlete is facing charges for attacking a visiting team player for wearing braids on the basis of cultural appropriation vs. Black and Brown grade school robotics competitors being told to go "back to Mexico" (just wow); conservative pundit, Tomi Lahren, gets suspended from her Blaze gig over her diverging pro-choice diatribe during her recent visit to the View; singer/actor, Tyrese Gibson causes a stir on the interwebs not only over the skin tone of his new wife but also his critique of Black women and lastly, a White Brooklyn artist has reportedly caused such a controversy with her painting of Emmett Till, entitled Open Casket that the term Whitepeopleing appears to be gaining traction (huh?).  Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
