AGAIN SPECULATION AS EVIDENCE IS NOT JOURNALISM. PLEASE STOP SUPPORTING A SITE THAT CLEARLY DISRESPECTS BLACK PEOPLE AND BLACK CULTURE. MR. SMITH APPEARS TO BE ONE OF THE FEW REMAINING ENTERTAINERS THAT PROVIDES A CLEAN IMAGE AND FAMILY AND YET WE DON'T LIKE ANYTHING UNLESS IT'S DYSFUNCTIONAL, CRIMINAL OR REGRESSIVE. THE MORE NORMAL SOMEONE NOTABLE (OR OTHERWISE) APPEARS TO BE THE LESS THEY ARE LIKED!
TRY COMBATING THIS SITE BY GOING TO A PLACE THAT RESPECTS BLACK CULTURE....AFRONERD.COM AND AFRONERDRADIO.COM.
ISN'T IT TIME FOR A CHANGE? A TIME TO SWITCH THE PERCEPTION THAT BLACKS FOLKS CURRENTLY POSSESS. ENOUGH! ENOUGH OF THE MINSTRELS! ENOUGH OF NO TALENTS WEARING AFRO-SAXON TOUPEES OR CAUCASIAN HAIR HATS! HAVEN'T YOU HAD YOUR FILL OF MTO SHOWCASING AND MAKING MONEY OFF OF BLACK DYSFUNCTIONALISM AND EMBARRASSMENT?
AND WHILE YOU'RE AT IT, CHECK OUT AFRONERDRADIO.COM *** (AND EVERY WED) AT 7PM. FOR URBAN ALTERNATIVE MUSIC, PROGRESSIVE HIP HOP, BLACK ROCK, FUNK, ETC (YOU KNOW, THE MUSIC THAT CORPORATE RADIO STATIONS REFUSE TO PLAY THAT DOESN'T INSULT BLACK PEOPLE, WOMEN OR CULTURE!!!). THE TOPICS: Pull up a seat and listen to The Comic Shoppe this Sunday starting at 6pm. Join Daryll B., Dburt and Captain Kirk as they pontificate on the following "nerdic" fare: the Latino Review reports that the Hulk may end up with a Planet Hulk/Avengers tie-in story or the silver screen at some point in the future; a recent Robot 6 article puts focus on the dearth of Black writers at DC and Marvel; is the JLA movie in distress?-a writer is let go and Paul Dini (Batman Animated Series, Justice League Animated) states that he wouldn't be interested in writing a live action version and lastly, a discussion of race and and animation-the Shadow & Act site highlights Ralph Bakshi's Coonskin as well as Warner Bros' controversial cartoon past. Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620!
Next up, Afronerd Radio bats second at 7pm eastern. Captain Kirk and Dburt wax on the following topics: rogue LA cop, Christopher Dorner rampages vowing revenge against a police force he deems corrupt; quite a bit of nastiness on the part of Facebook for their refusal to remove a racist page; more on Roots Vs Django with the cast of Roots; the HufPost's Black Voices has an interesting op-ed by Clarence Haynes regarding his fondness for comics-specifically, the character Storm from The X-Men and lastly, The Root denotes the historical origins of the "Blerd" (Afronerd sounds better, doesn't it?). CALL THE HOSTS LIVE AT 646-915-9620. TIME TO THROW UP (OOPS) THROW OUT THE CLOWNS!
