Viola Davis Loses Oscar by a Hair; The Blue Area Continues; Porn Kickstarter?; Santorum's Rise; Blackface @Oscars & More-Afronerd Radio 2nite @7pm!
What's up loyal Afronerd Radio/Comic Shoppe listeners! Pull up a chair and listen to our (oftentimes) fiery broadcast this Wednesday evening at 7pm eastern standard time. Join the Captain and Dburt as they highlight the following current event laden issues: The Help's Viola Davis loses the Oscar to Meryl Streep but gained attention for her natural hairstyle; speaking of the Academy Awards, veteran comedian and show host, Billy Crystal catches heat for not only his Sammy Davis "blackface" impersonation but also a off color racial tinged joke connected to The Help; for our Blue Area "positive" copy segment, we pick up what we failed to discuss due to time constraints from last week's show-the opening of the Smithsonian's Black History Museum; is Offbeatr the porn equivalent of Kickstarter? and lastly, in light of Governor Romney's wins in Arizona and Michigan.....what exactly is the deal with his rival, Rick Santorum (i.e. stance on religion, education, etc)? AGAIN...feel free to give us a call "live" at 646-915-9620 or via email/IM at firstname.lastname@example.org.
