To get my car to start I had to use some duct tape and apply some afro engineering.

"Hey I made this hooka out of an old coffee can and some crap I found lying around in my house"
"Thats some real afro engineering you got going right there"

A mild-mannered way of saying "ni**er rig." Used mainly when describing an action in which a person has used strange or unusual means to carelessly fix something.
"How do you like my afro engineering?"
"Looks like you just stuffed cotton in the speaker hole and taped it up."
"Exactly."

The science of half-assing small repair jobs.

When used in isolation sometimes referred to as a nigger rig.

When an individual believes his way of repairing is the best way, yet his repair will certainly fails within weeks due to the quality and use of improper equipment.
My dad has a degree in afro-engineering. Look at all the repairs he never actually fixed.

The less offensive way of saying "nigger rigging"
That guy should be shot, he did nothing but get that shit to work long enough to get away. This afro engineering is unacceptable.
