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.
I spoke on TRS (Talk real solutions) for the last time on March 21, 2015. Why was it the last time. Because the show's hosts refuse to let their emotional rants, and disjointed arguments die. As opposed to being another place to bring people together who are concerned about the death and destruction of black people, sadly TRS typically is a place to rant, without any tangible solutions. Worse, Tyronne and Supreme, although they do often make great points, allow their emotions and lack of true understanding of History to taint their rants. Further, they target and BULLY certain callers that may not agree with their (often weak) flawed arguments and proceed to use ad hominem attacks, etc on such callers. How is this related to black media generally. Black media usually (not always ) lacks intellect, stimulation and real organization and professionalism. And it hates to be critiqued, and has a I AM SUPERIOR complex. Do I have faults. Yes. But I try to address them, and own up to them. Sadly TRS, and most black media and hosts, refuse to even back up when their research is limited and their positions flawed. It will be difficult to help empower black people when so many black celebrities, radio hosts, etc live for FAME and bullying as opposed to black power. I hope that this messages reaches people and that Tyronne and Supreme decide to grow up and be more civil Until then, I refuse to waste time on TRS, even though there are still some very good people that go there to chat, I refuse to be driven into disjointed discussions, and limited intellectual dialog. I will continue to seek ways to ensure that black people, any oppressed group of humans, get justice, knowledge, power. I don't have all answers but I sure do my best with the resources at my disposal, to try and help. POWER TO THE PEOPLE. Self defense not blind violence and ignorance. Hotep Kenyatta

The Dynamics of Colorism Talk Radio has a new name: Complexity Talk Radio (Complexity Live) featuring hosts Dr. Donnamaria Culbreth and Dr. Julie Jung-Kim. We will continue to feature a monthly segment titled The Dynamics of Colorism.
Although slavery ended over 150 years ago, the effects of this mentality remain today. Research shows that darker-skinned African Americans are disproportionately disadvantaged in many areas. For example, one study found a hiring advantage for lighter-skinned African Americans, even when the resumes of dark versus light skinned applicants were identical (Harrison & Thomas, 2009).
Colorism and Beauty
These biases are particularly salient for African American women, as the American ideal of beauty is primarily Eurocentric. Women who have lighter skin, straighter hair, and more European facial features are preferred over those features considered more historically African. Thus, many Black women wrestle with their physical appearance and whether they meet the dominant culture’s female ideal. They may straighten and lighten their hair to be closer to the Eurocentric standard. Black women put more time and energy into their physical appearance, which may be in part to compensate for being considered less attractive than White women.
"Lord, if, as thou hast taught us, the woman is the highest form of humanity, and the last to be assumed, how comes it that thou, the Christ, art still in the lower form of man? Why comest thou not to lead the perfect life, and to save the world as woman? For surely, thou hast attained to womanhood." And Jesus answered, "I have attained to womanhood, as thou sayest; and already have I taken the form of woman. But there are three conditions under which the soul returns to the man's form; and they are these:--
"1st. When the work which the Spirit proposes to accomplish is of a
nature unsuitable to the female form.
"2nd. When the Spirit has failed to acquire, in the degree necessary
to perfection, certain special attributes of the male character.
"3rd. When the Spirit has transgressed, and gone back in the path of
perfection, by degrading the womanhood it had attained. - Essene Gospels
"Good morning. Straight forward question do you believe in God as in the God in heaven? Do you believe He's Supreme/Ultimate? I pray to that God a lot, it's what I was taught. But do you?"

Howdy, loyal citizens! Welcome to the latest edition of Afronerd Radio's Mid Week in Review broadcast airing this Wednesday at 7:30pm (EST). Join Dburt and Capt. Kirk as they wax politic and prophetic on the following topics: a brief pre-Grindhouse discussion regarding our visit to this past weekend's Black Comic Book Festival located at the legendary Schomburg Black History Museum; Dburt gives his last diatribe on the folly of intraracial colorism at the advent of the release of the Light Girls doc on the OWN network; and there's probably a similar rant as it pertains to Black investment in the Academy Awards; Tesla's Elon Musk is hoping to revolutionize public transportation with his Hyperloop transit system; analyzing actor Anthony Mackie's recent comments about race, Selma and racial profiling (now Anthony you know you can't have a non-tribal/individualistic opinion!); and speaking of Selma, why has Dburt delayed watching the film (and thankfully, Cap has seen it) and lastly, was MSNBC's Ronan Farrow awkwardly condescending toward a young Black attendee to POTUS' latest State of the Union address? You decide. Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
