Just the topics, ma'am...the topics!  Listen to Afronerd Radio's Mid Week in Review (MWIR) airing Wednesdays at 7:30pm ET.  Join your hosts, Dburt and Capt. Kirk as they tackle this (mid) week's current topics:  noted screenwriter, John Ridley (12 Years a Slave, American Crime) causes a stir with his latest TV series, Guerrilla, which is about the rise of Black revolutionaries in 1970s London (minus Black female involvement in Ridley's version); and just what happened to that passenger that was unceremoniously booted of an United Airlines flight?;  and in the world of the inane, our impressions of the news that superstar actress/singer, Janet Jackson, now thrice divorced, ended the union due to insurmountable cultural differences;  WH press secretary, Sean "Spicey" Spicer is in the thick of it (again) with some pretty ignorant remarks about the gassing of humans as a part of the historical record (Syria vs WW2 Germany); is there such a thing as "hot water" Wednesday?  Dallas Cowboys wide receiver, Dez Bryant get his foot "stuck in it" by giving his opinion on racism versus Afircan American self defeatism and intraracial bickering;  Black Voices has an addditional angle to the Kalief Browder Rikers Island tragedy;  Dburt lists a few ancillary and trending stories as a reminder that the world is crazy and perhaps the public is being dooped into submission and misdirection;  a FL middle school teacher loses her job due to what many parents assert was a controversial questionnaire involving racial and religious issues;  if articial intelligence is expected to be the next big thing-are American adults preparing to obtain the necessary training/education to remain competitive in this evolving marketplace; And lastly, we finally discuss the trouble with Morehouse College and its leadership.  Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
