A Mayan Calendar Won't Stop Afronerd Radio! Tune in @7pm EST-Issues: Urine-gate & The Taliban; The 1st Lady Gets Even "Not" Angry; A Ghetto App & More
Don't forget to mark your calendars (Mayan, maybe....) for Sunday's Afronerd featuring Captain Kirk broadcast at 7pm eastern standard time (live call in number is 646-915-9620). Keeping it clean and succinct, as always, the team will "unpack" the following topical concerns: the fallout certain to arise stemming from a viral clip of U.S. Marines urinating on dead alleged members of the Taliban; a new book entitled, The Obamas makes some startling charges against the FLOTUS, Michelle Obama which many have deemed characterize her as a stereotypical "angry" Black woman; Is Microsoft's new "pedestrian route production" app really a thinly veiled racist "avoid ghetto" mechanism?; we finally address last week's House of Lies and Amber Case stories and for our Blue Area/positive spin segment-a reflection on the upcoming Dr. Martin Luther King holiday.
Afronerd Radio's pre MLK day special broadcast!
And speaking of Dr. King, take a look at this PBS interview from 1963 with Dr. Kenneth B. Clark:
