THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS ON A SLOW NEWS DAY AND WHEN YOUR CULTURE IS IN SHAMBLES. CAN WE PLEASE AIM THE FOCUS ON OTHER CELEBRITIES? THERE ARE SITES LIKE SHADOW AND ACT THAT HAVE RAISED THE BAR AND FOCUS ON BLACK FOLK IN MEDIA AND ENTERTAINMENT ON AN INTERNATIONAL LEVEL NOT THE SAME TIRED MINSTRELS THAT MTO WORSHIPS. THIS HAS BECOME SAD AND YET ANOTHER REASON WHY BLACK FOLKS ARE CONTINUALLY DISRESPECTED ON AN INTERNATIONAL SCALE. WE LOOK LIKE CONFUSED, DYSFUNCTIONAL COURT JESTERS WITH THE ONLY PURPOSE BUT TO ENTERTAIN WHITE FOLKS WHO GLOAT AT OUR DOWNFALL.
WE SEE THAT THERE IS A NEED FOR OTHER BLACK CULTURE AND NEWS SITES THAT FOCUS ON "OTHER" CELEBRITIES BESIDES THE 10 OR 12 ROTATING NOTABLES THAT GARNER THE ATTENTION OF THIS MINSTREL CENTRIC SITE. THERE IS A ZIMMERMAN TRIAL, MDKS (MURDER, DEATH, KILLS) IN CHI-RAQ (CHICAGO), EDUCATIONAL/BUSINESS AND SCIENTIFIC ACHIEVEMENTS BEING MADE BY PEOPLE OF COLOR AND YET MTO CHOOSES TO FOCUS ON CROTCHES. BUTTS AND FEET....THERE HAS GOT TO BE A BETTER WAY TO EXPLOIT BLACK PEOPLE.
CHECK OUT AFRONERDRADIO.COM THIS SATURDAY AT 6PM (AND WEDS AT 7PM) WHERE ALTERNATIVE MUSIC , CULTURE AND THOUGHT FROM A BLACK PERSPECTIVE IS THE FOCUS. CALL THE HOSTS LIVE AT 646-915-9620.
Howdy, loyal listeners and Afronerd citizens. Pull up a seat and feel free to sip a cool refreshing drink as you listen to the double feature broadcast of The Grindhouse starting at 6pm sharp. First up, The Comic Shoppe featuring your hosts, Daryll B., Captain Kirk and Dburt will discuss the following pulp/pop cultural topics: the crew gives their review of the latest Guillermo del Toro helmed film, Pacific Rim; a new book entitled, Bill the Boy Wonder aims to highlight the uncredited contributions of legendary comic book creator, Bill Finger; impressions of next week's San Diego's Comic Con; the death of yet another minority character (from Marvel's Fearless Defenders #6) elicits fan outrage: Spike Lee's Old Boy trailer hits the net and lastly, actor Vin Diesel paid a visit to Marvel Studios recently......and let the speculation begin. Call the hosts live at 646-815-9620.
Next, we have Afronerd Radio "pitching relief" with Dburt and Captain Kirk at 7pm! The issues on the table this week are: our impressions of the George Zimmerman trial as it comes to a close and verdict appears imminent; noted sports columnist and Fox Sports analyst, Jason Whitlock questions hip hop entrepreneur, Jay-Z' latest foray into Sports management; a new book entitled Confessions of a Sociopath by M.E. Thomas gives insight into the mind of the author/attorney who is a self identified sociopath and lastly, does the new film Fruitvale Station sustain the cinematic meme of Black dysfunction= oscar consideration? Stop by, call in..the water is warm!
