Afronerd Radio 2 Nite, 7pm ET: Spike vs Tyler Perry, Madness at McDonalds, Iphone Addiction is Real, Soul Food Shame, 7yr old in Handcuffs & More!
Afronerd Radio returns pretty much in the same vein as the lyrics of a Mavis Staples' song....Let's Do it Again! Join Captain Kirk and Dburt tonight at 7pm eastern as they wax poetic on this week's current event laden topics: it appears that the battle over appropriate Black entertainment representation reached a fever pitch with Tyler Perry telling Spike Lee to "go to hell" over Lee's recent criticisms of Perry's films for promoting Black minstrelsy; a woman weaponized her vehicle in an Ohio McDonalds' parking lot, striking four people during the famed franchise's national hiring day; not only has cell phone usage among the young mimicked a form of addiction but the very same technology doubles as a form of tacit surveillance; are some people of color ashamed of Soul Food?....case in point-actress, Holly Robinson Peete vs The Braxtons and lastly, is it appropriate for a 7 year old boy with autism to be handcuffed over behavioral concerns? Stop by and call in live at-646-915-9620 or via email/instant message-afronerdradio.com.
