SORT BY Relevancy
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.

I got cyber bullied by someone who called me a death sucking American just because I put a benign fact on my Twitter feed about Palestinian birth rates which by the way are explosive and the highest in the world. Mia Farrow is usually on the mark but she has been a little off kilter lately too with her extreme posts one sided against Israel. No one is on the ground zero battle field. I feel that some people's Twitter opinions are too extreme....or hostile. The person who called me a death sucking American was a teacher. I feel people are too full of themselves. That, and Jon Yoder's original music and how he almost opened for a big act. Yale Butler joins us at the end to explain her perspective on being married to an Israeli.
GO BACK TO WHEN THE BERLIN WALL CAME DOWN. DID WE REALLY WIN THE COLD WAR? DID WE LET OUR GUARD DOWN AND CONVINCE OURSELVES WE WON. DID RUSSIA AND CHINA PLAY US? IS COMMUNISM STRONGER TODAY THAN EVER BEFORE. WHY IS COMMUNISM BEING TAUGHT IN THE THIRD GRADE? NAME ONE COLLEGE NOT INFECTED BY BOLSHEVISM. WHAT IS ENVIRO LENINISM? WHAT IS ISLAMO LENINISM? IS IT TIME TO COUNT THE DEAD ON THE BATTLEFIELD AND SEE WHO REALLY IS WINNING?
RONALD REAGAN CANNOT SAVE US TODAY. IS IT TIME TO ELECT A BATTLEFIELD GENERAL? WHY NOT MCCHRYSTAL?
WHAT IS THE LINK BETWEEN PINETTA AND THE INSTITUTE FOR POLICY STUDIES? THE IFPS IS ALLEGED TO BE A KGB FRONT GROUP. DID YOU KNOW THAT 2017 IS THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY. COMMUNISTS ARE BIG ON DATES. EARTHDAY IS LENINS BIRTHDAY. THE KGB IS NOW THE FSB. HOW OUR ENEMIES MORPH AND CHANGE TITLES. AL QUEDA TO ISIL. DEMOCRATS TO COMMUNISTS. RINOS TO DEMOCRATS.
TIME TO LOOK AT THE BIG PICTURE. KISSENGER WITH PUTIN. MIA FARROW WITH ENVIRO LENINISTS IN ECUADOR. DID KISSENGER REALLY SAY THAT ISRAEL WILL BE GONE IN TEN YEARS.?
WORLD WAR II STARTED BECAUSE HITLER INVADED POLAND. WE WON WWII BUT STALIN WON POLAND AND A LOT OF OTHER SLAVE STATES. IF WE HAD TO DRAFT TEN MILLION AMERICANS TOMORROW, WHO WOULD SHOW FOR WORK?
What happens when a CHP officer "goes postal" and starts beating down a citizen with a display of excessive force? Are we lead to believe this is a one-time incident or is the problem of assault & battery by police officers a bigger problem than we think?
Here is the police beatdown video, you can see the brutality and for yourself.
The incident was reported on fox news website:
"When this incident occurred, I promised that I would look into it and vowed a swift resolution," Farrow's statement said. "Today, we have worked constructively to reach a settlement agreement that is satisfactory to all parties involved."
That's great, there is a swift settlement, but this settlement agreement is NOT to MY satisfaction, as someone (who as a kid) was harassed for no reason by an officer in Upland, California, I would respectfully request that each CHP officer, and commanding officer, submit to 5 addtional excessive-force training videos PER YEAR so that this type of incident won't happen again. The cop should also be cuffed, arrested, and read his rights. Join Vondran Legal Civil Litigation Attorneys and Frontline Liesee as they examine the legal issues surrounding personal injuries caused by brutality of law enforcement officers.

Journalist Rula Jebreal discusses media bias in Palestinian-Israeli Conflict
Rula Jebreal will be the featured guest on Politics Done Right. Rula Jebreal is a journalist, a commentator, and author of Miral, a novel translated into 15 languages, that sold millions of copiesworldwide and a film that was the first ever premiered in the UN General Assembly Hall. She also authored the International Fince Europa Award winning book The Bride of Aswan that was translated into 5 languages. Her third book, Rejected is a non-fiction about immigration in Europe. She wrote and produced the film Permesso di Soggiorno about the death penalty in China, the United States, and Iran during the UN debate on the death penalty in 2008.
Jebreal is the brave journalist that had the spine to go into a mainstream media studio, an MSNBC studio and speak the truth at her own peril. While concurrently writing an article on the refugee crisis on the Texas border and listening to Ronan Farrow Daily on MSNBC, I listened somewhat inattentively as Rula Jebreal gave a spirited narrative on the biased coverage given to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. I had not heard such a brave defense and pushback on MSNBC or on any other network. I immediately stopped what I was doing, recorded the interview, and edited it for Internet consumption. I knew the traditional mainstream media would attempt to make it a one day story. The blogosphere would not.

Today on the Brian The Hammer Show Brian will be talking about Headlines in the Media:
-Civil-Rights Activist Rev. Al Sharpton is leading a boycott against Kanye West, after the rapper declared he has "reclaimed" the Confederate Flag from racists, and emblazoned the symbol on his tour merchandise. - Rev. Al Sharpton took issue with comments from former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin who compared the federal debt to slavery, saying it's hard not to sound racist when you make such an analogy. Sharpton said Palin shouldn't be using such rhetoric, but she's concerned with feeding her base. - Brian will call the National Action Network today to get a statement on both these issues.
-Andy Kaufman, passed away 29 years ago of cancer, is he actually alive and well, a stay at home Dad who faked his own death 29 years ago. Now his Brother Michael and an alleged 24 year old Daughter came out at the annual Andy Kaufman Awards in NYC to say his death was a hoax.
-New MSNBC Host; Ronan Farrow, allegedly Frank Sinatra's Son - Mia Farrow is claiming Frank Sinatra is actually Ronan's Father and not Woody Allen.
What's wrong with the two stories above? What makes sense, what doesn't? What do these people all have to gain by these allegations?
-IFBC (Independent Film Broadcasting Coalition) to announce ONLINE FILM FESTIVAL today - tune in for details!
