And now, a regular feature here on Midday: The Afro Check-In, where we sit down with our colleagues at the Baltimore Afro Newspaper to talk about some of the issues and stories they are covering.

Early voting in Mary’s primary election begins in less than 7 weeks. Several key state senate races, in West Baltimore’s 40th, 41st and 44th Districts are heating up. We’ll take a look at those.

And, the “N” word, used by a Mexican-American rapper. Is that OK?

And how about Kanye West? Given his apprarent Bromance with President Trump, The Afro and others are asking, “Is Kanye OK?”

Kamau High is the Managing Editor of the Afro. Sean Yoes is the Baltimore Editor and the Host of the podcast, Afro First Edition. They joined Tom in Studio A.

Audio to be added by 4 p.m. 

Host, Midday (M-F 12:00-1:00)
