Afronerd Radio Airs Sun at 7pm: Topics 2B Covered; WeinerGate; New Xmen & Old Racial Formula; Another MTO Rant; An Anti Aging Pill is Here! Or is it?
Good Evening, true believers, supporters and detractors! I'm just coming of a "nerdic" euphoria after bearing witness to the latest in the Marvel Comics movie franchise-X-men: First Class. We will, of course, discuss the film in depth on Tuesday's Comic Shoppe but we will address some overtones in the film that still continue to persist as a formulaic device when it comes to characters of color. Captain Kirk is scheduled to check out the film on Monday, so out of respect, I will be very vague as it pertains to the plot and spoilers. Anyway, let's run down the rest of the issues to be discussed....AGAIN, tomorrow at 7pm eastern at-afronerdradio.com: I'm fairly certain that our listeners are aware of the cursory advances taking place in the biotech industry but the latest news appears to be a new and substantive anti-aging pill; more on Congressman Anthony Weiner's "wiener" dilemma; Dburt has a double rant involving yet another misleading Mediatakeout blog posting involving monolithic, authentic vs inauthentic Blackness (AGAIN!!) and a life lesson from his father, The Oracle. Definitely not the show to miss! Stop by or better yet, call in live at 646-915-9620 or via email/IMfirstname.lastname@example.org. And remember, in the immortal words of Eric Lehnsherr-"Always remember: Mutant, and proud!"...
