If It's Sunday & 7pm & It's Afronerd Radio Time! Discussing A Real Life "Jaquan" Incident, Egypt in Wisconsin?, More from Last Week & Keenan Cahill!
Well it's time to get into it, folks! It's time (as always) to battle lower tier sentiment and sensibilities on Afronerd Radio, this Sunday at 7pm eastern. But before the battle begins, Dburt and Captain Kirk have their tricorders ready to analyze the following maladies: it appears that the NY media have been locked on a tragic story involving a college bound, prep school scholar from Harlem and her allegiance to a street gang (Jaquan has something to do with this......literally); Wisconsin is under the spotlight with labor unions fighting for survival and why the protests look a lot like Egypt; a commendation goes to a Chicago charter school's 100% Black male student college matriculation rate; a continuation of last week's topics (Oak Bluffs, Super Bowl commercial controversies) and a brief nod to the struggles of internet sensation, Keenan Cahill....whew! So log on to afronerdradio.com and call us up live at-646-915-9620 or contact us via email/IM firstname.lastname@example.org! And in the immortal words of Bruce Wayne-"Criminals (or progressives of various tiers) are a superstitious, cowardly lot, so my disguise must be able to strike terror into their hearts. I must be a creature of the night, black, terrible... a... a... a bat!(or an educated, well spoken Conservative person of color)"

Afronerd Radio Airs 2nite at 7pm-Discussing Dburt on Opie & Anthony, New Supes Actor, St Albans & Black History Month & Is BHM Still Necessary?
Hey Folks! As you know, since everyone and their grandmother is going to to be glued to their respective 3D flat screens looking at Super Bowl XLV, we decided that it might be prudent to air The Afronerd Featuring Captain Kirk Show (aka Afronerd Radio) this Saturday at 7pm eastern. And in our time honored tradition in keeping matters copacetic and succinct, check out the topics we deemed worthy of discussion: an analysis of my brief (1.20.2011) appearance on The Opie and Anthony Show during their "discourse" on violent crime in Black communities (I succumbed to tribalism..damn!); a new Man of Steel actor has been chosen and he's a Brit!; St. Albans' (NY) contribution to Black History; and speaking of BHM, is it still necessary? (we're just asking) and lastly, it looks like President Mubarak and his administration are resigning but now the question remains-what's (or rather, who's) next? Call in live at: 646-915-9620 or via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org. See you guys (and gals) tonight at 7pm!
And in honor of Black History Month, let's take a look see at an important interview or is it a grilling with Malcolm X:
