Afronerd Radio plays "Dueling Banjos" a.k.a. White Trash Blues.....

For the uninitiated, the dueling banjos reference is not only a famous scene from Burt Reynolds' Deliverance but also serves as an excellent example of Appalachian or "White Trash" culture. As I mentioned in a previous post, we experienced technical difficulties which caused our White culture (or more specifically, White Trash) analysis show not to air. So I guess that makes us entitled to a do-over. On this Thursday's (May 17th at 9pm) broadcast we are going to discuss the similarities (and differences) between "white trash" and ghetto culture, respectively. We would like to hear from our readers/commenters-call us live at-646-915-9620 or IM the show via afronerdradio@yahoo. Be there and be square. And in homage to our topic, take a look at the above clip of one man's astute synopsis of a White trash dish better served cold-a proposed reality tv reunion between Amy Fisher and Joey Buttafuoco. You gotta love it.

Time to talk about White Culture. Hey turnabout is fair play!
