It's hight time that we keep matters simple, folks. Welcome to the latest episode of Afronerd Radio's Mid Week in Review broadcast airing this Wednesday at 7:30pm. Join your hosts Dburt and Capt. Kirk as they decipher the following current event stories: thanks to Gawker.com, it appears we get further insight into the mystery man that operates one of the leading international shock sites, WorldstarHipHop.com; picking up from where we left off from the last show, Dburt believes that he has coined the naming of a theory he dubs steamroller or "locomotive" politics pertaining to the Dolce & Gabbana designer babies controversy (incl. a daughter of a same sex couple that ironically does not support gay marriage); Is ESPN's Stephen A. Smith right about Blacks needing to defect to the GOP (Dburt says "yes" but you knew that); Japan chooses a Blasian Miss Japan and many on the homogeneous island are not pleased; highlighting news of a 100m set aside for African tech entrepreneurs with hopes of creating a million jobs in the continent; X-files returns to FOX after a 13 year lapse. And lastly, more racial stories that are national and international in origin (Starbuck's failed race initiative; Brazil's colorism microaggressions and a Chinese restaurant in Kenya refusing Black patrons...in a Black country). Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
Welcome to the latest edition of Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse (The Comic Shoppe airing at 6pm and Afronerd Radio, thereafter at 7pm) featuring your hosts-Daryll B., Capt. Kirk and Dburt. For the Comic Shoppe segment, the topics to be rousted about are: our thoughts about the recently banned Batgirl variant cover and how the character has been portrayed over the years; the IGN website provides you with their own What If? casting for an Avengers film circa 1985 (think Burt Reynolds as Tony Stark); a recent Comics Alliance piece highlights cartoonist, Ronald Wimberly's lament at being told by an editor to lighten a character of color's skin; our impressions of the CW's comic to TV properties-last Tuesday's Flash episode, the premiere of iZombie and more spinoff talk for the Atom (and others). And lastly, it appears that President Obama's Lilly Ledbetter Act is working because Thor as a woman is selling better than Thor (Odinson)!
Up next, there's Afronerd Radio starting at 7pm. The topics to be grilled on the barbie are: Dburt name checks the theory of "locomotive" (or steamroller) politics relating to the Dolce & Gabbana designer babies issue (incl. the daughter of a same sex couple that doesn't favor gay marriage); a Blasian women becoming Miss Japan causes controversy with some Nipponese folk; highlighting news of a 100m set aside for African tech entrepreneurs with hopes of creating a million jobs in the continent. And lastly, the hosts attempt to discern and dissect the latest racial stories that have hit the scene in the last few days (Mississippi hanging, UVA student beating, Taraji P Henson's son gets profiled, etc). Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.

We discuss the origins of race, why we all look different, and how the reality is there IS no race.
Interracial relationships were once completely taboo and forbidden by society. Today, we see interracial couples everywhere. However, are there still issues with racism and stress on interracial relationships due to societal and familial pressures?
We'll talk about both about what it's like to be part of an interracial relationship as well as the children whom are a result of such a relationship. Also, the racism and bigotry encountered by such couples today.
We'll be joined by Blasian Q, a social commentator.
