    Beyond the Airwaves Episode 96 -- The DUMBEST Change.org Petitions EVER!

    in Entertainment

    This is Beyond the Airwaves: The Infinity Project, where we go beyond the mainstream media and tackle issues that don't seem so important to the major networks.

    We all know about the website change.org. It's the site to come up with petitions to get people to talk about serious issues, like the raping of women in different countries around the world and removing the pink slime from fast food restaurants. However, the petitions we're gonna use here are among the most ridiculous ever created. From wanting to remove Ben Affleck as Batman to completely redoing the entire season of Power Rangers Super Megaforce, some people come up with the lamest excuses to use change.org's site. A big thank you goes to Mike the King of Hearts for suggesting this episode idea.

    Ikari Chaos-San is the founder and creator. Shirley is truly the Oddball Extreme. Janet is our resident Arizona Magician. Tim is the Tokusatsu Master. Heather is Queen Kitty Serenity. Mike the King of Hearts is our video game wizard. We'll also have guest appearances by our friends from the MAD HOUSE, so come and listen in!

    Visit our official website at http://beyondtheairwaves.weebly.com and don't forget to join in the conversation on the forums located on our official website. We want you guys and gals, the fans, to tell us what's on your mind and what you feel is important to cover, so let us know what you want to hear.

    St. Vincent and the Grenadines and the Stolen Elections with Alex Mitchell

    in Radio

    Is There Democracy in the West Indies?  Vote Buying and Fraudulent Elections seem to be the order of the day during elections in the West Indies.  Most recently, however, is the situation in St. Vincent and the Grenadines


    "The Democratic rights of the people of St.Vincent and the Grenadines had been gravely violated on 09th December, 2015. The general election process which was supposed to be a free and fair one, was severely compromised by several reported allegations of irregularities and fraudulent activities, in which a microscopic few had hijacked the electoral process in favor of the incumbent party, despite numerical evidences from votes showing that the major opposition party had won the election in those constituencies."  Change.Org

    Protect Victims of Child Exploitation: Stop charging them as prostitutes

    in Family

    We Need 100 Signatures to Help Stop Charging Victims of Child Exploitation for Prostitution. #BanArrestandAssess.  


    Human Trafficking Victims in America. Stop charging them as prostitutes. #BanArrestandAssess.  This episode will discuss the Justice for Trafficking Victims Act 2015.  We will discuss that children who are victims of child sexual exploitation are charged as "child prostitutes" every day in America. We will discuss that only 18 out of 50 states have Safe Harbor laws and what we can do to change this problem. Every one is accountable for the collateral consequences associated with locking up children, so why has Congress refused to mandate that victims of child exploitation should not be charged as prostitute?


    Go to Change.org and sign our petition and share it with everyone that you know.

    Community Connections with Hank Hunt_A Father's Love

    in Dads and Family

    Divorce is hard; and, when there are children involved it can be downright painful.  Fathers often get left out of the equation and must learn quickly how to create a presence from a distance that their children can feel.  Today's guest not only created a presence in his daughters' lives while they were growing up but he also became a one man movement--proving that sometimes all you really need is a father's love. 


    Tune in as I talk with Hank about his love, his loss, and how he is creating change all over the world.

    Hola, to all our loyal listening compatriots!  Check out the latest episode of Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse show airing this Saturday at 6pm eastern.  For those intimately familiar with our Grindhouse broadcast, it is essentially a sonic version of a cinematic double feature with Comic Shoppe as the opening act and Afronerd Radio for the final epilogue starting at 7pm.  Join Daryll B., Dburt and Capt. Kirk for the Comic Shoppe segment when they address the following pulp flavored issues:  Daryll's take on last week's release of Guardians of the Galaxy film; and conversely Dburt waxes on the New TMNT film; Daryll McDaniels of the legendary hip hop group RUN_DMC promotes a new comic book venture at the Boston Comic Con; the crew finally unpacks on the recent Esquire blog piece entitled, "Are Black Superheroes  Good for Black People?"; highlighting the Black panels at last week's SDCC; Zack Snyder defends Aquaman on a Detroit radio show and lastly, a new Black themed book alert-Top Cow's Genius releases issue #2 next week.  Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.


    And then there's Afronerd Radio batting "clean up" at 7pm.  Join Dburt and Capt. Kirk as they analyze the following topics: is a Change.org petition challenging music artists and record companies to stop degrading Black people/culture a strong enough tactic? Why not a class action suit? a recent USATODAY piece puts the focus on a booming tech economy that is allegedly fueling an urban renaissance.  The question remains-how can Blacks and Latinos take advantage of this especially if it's occurring within or adjacent to their neighborhoods? ; hip hop artist, Busta Rhymes' new  "swagger wagon commercial causes a stir on Black Twitter and The Root critiques a new app called the "Sketch Factor.

Ladies and Gents!  Welcome to another fantastic sonic voyage courtesy of Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse broadcast airing this Saturday at 6pm (EST).  Since our comrade in arms, Daryll B. is vacationing, we will conduct another "mixtape-mashup" show focusing on the latest pop, pulp and political news events.  Join your hosts, Dburt and Capt. Kirk as their colloquium covers the following issues:  the crew at Afronerd Radio Dburt bore witness to the latest Marvel event, The Guardians of the Galaxy (as it seems poised for a 100m weekend boxoffice take); Dburt also checks out the James Brown biopic, Get on Up; a part two discourse on the Stephen A. Smith suspension and his controversial domestic violence rant; Shadow and Act's Sergio Mims ponders why director, Woody Allen "won't hire a Black actor unless the role calls for one" ; Fear of a Black Panel-the Racialicious blog highlights San Diego Comic Con's diversity panels; the NYPD Eric Graner chokehold death case has been ruled a homicide; in Net neutrality news, some civil rights ogranizations are coming forward to support government and corporate control of the cyberwebs (huh?); is a Change.org petition challenging artists and record companies to stop degrading Black people/culture a strong enough tactic? Why not a class action suit? And lastly, a new USATODAY piece puts the focus on a booming tech economy that is allegedly fueling an urban renaissance.  The question remains-how can Blacks and Latinos take advantage of this especially if it's occurring within or adjacent to their neighborhoods? Call live at 646-915-9620.  And in the inimitable words of (Marvel's) Thor...Speak mortals, Afronerd commands it!
