Just the facts, folks!  Check out Afronerd Radio's Mid Week in Review (MWIR) podcast airing this Wednesday at 7;30pm EST.  Listen to your hosts, Dburt and Capt. Kirk wax about the following subject matter:  a recent piece in The Daily Beast sheds light on popular German hip hop artist, Schwesta Ewa, who literally prostituted her fanbase (definitely more "gangsta" than Rema Ma or Nicki Minaj);  In Search of Purity: Popular Eugenics & Racial Uplift Among New Negroes 1915-1935 by Dr. Shantella Sherman examines how noted African-American scholars (i.e. WEB DuBois) interpolated Eugenics for a social movement for racial progress; Dburt ponders whether the sale of The Root to Univision is analagous to BET being purchased by Viacom-has it ben watered down to pander to prurient (minstrel) interests?; actress/entertainer, Whoopi Goldberg thinks that Disney should reconsider it's embargo relating to the controversial 1946 live action animated film, Song of the South; a Baltimore barbershop produces a pre-teen chess champion; And lastly, after discussing the importance of the term, "Blerd,"  actress/singer, Zoe Kravitz catches twitter hate for affriming that she is an "artist" versus being solely a "Black" artist (lack of comprehension is a helluva drug).  Call the hosts LIVE at 646-915-9620.
