    Time to make the donuts, people!  Check out a new installment of Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse broadcast-airing this Sunday at 6 p.m. eastern on BTalk 100.   Listen to your favored AFROnerdist hosts wax about the following topics:  Dburt, while perusing a burgeoning Youtuber, Sinnik22 's channel, which is dedicated to curating the late music icon, Prince's legacy-thought of a potential What ....If? scenario. What if  Purple Rain had been produced by Richard Pryor and Jim Brown's Indigo Productions?  What if the cult classic film had a black director and financing? Would the film have been equally (or more) impactful to pop culture history?



     A recent Undefeated.com article posits that the late Michael K. Williams' character, Omar Little, and perhaps the actor himself, taught Black men an alternate perspective of masculinity. Let's discuss that premise; Has it really been twenty years?  The crew commemorates the lives lost on September 11, 2001, but through a discerning Black lens; our thoughts about the Matrix Resurrections trailer that just hit the cyberwebs:


    Aquaman's "Joker," Black Manta gets his closeup via a limited graphic novel series; and then there's an upcoming VG that has a black protagonist and his African-American nemesis entitled, Deathloop.  It doesn't hurt that the game possesses a swinging 60s spy genre aesthetic to boot:


    And lastly,  Screenrant.com highlights the growing popularity of the other Wonder Woman (of color), Nubia.  The question remains....when will we see Nubia make her big-screen debut?
