Nnekay and James are back giggling in the korners. Trying to figure out how to set the record straight? No. Setting the record right? No. Setting the record on the appropriate course. Yes. They are here to discuss as what Marvin Gaye and James say, "What is going on?" They discuss horrible incident that happened in Las Vegas, what we can do about it, and how this keeps happening to America by Americans. The semantics of the media... who is called a lone wolf, a thug, a terrorist? In Nnekay's Korner, she is talking about two stories about two good things moving in the right direction, Harvard students protesting Betsy DeVos, and how Black Lives Matters cannot be sued. To round out her korner, Nnekay talks about way that we can take care of ourselves when the world looks bleak. James taking a trip to Latin America for Latinx History month, which is from September 15th- October 15th. In his korner he is taking a page from Anderson Cooper's book and doing and expose on what is going on in Venezuela. How Nicolas Maduro, the president of Venezuela is changing the country since Hugo Chavez, and has just been declared (by the US) a dictatorship. How are the people of Venezuela are rebelling and creating their own narrative. This is your last change to enter our 100 Minority Korner review sweepstakes! We're taking a little bit of a break (two weeks) and will be back with our 100th episode!!!! Enjoy the week and thanks for listening!!!!!!

Minority Korner

Hola! We are coming to you from around the globe, as James is in Espana and being unapologetically Black overseas, while spreading the gospel about racism in America like a Paul Revere. James is also working like a bastard, why do they work so hard, training for the Avengers 10K, accidentally joining separatist protests, and making a crazy film that may bring in the Spanish new wave of film making. Meanwhile back in the states, Nnekay has fallen in love with a new dog, and her bitch Zelda might not be having it. Also, maybe British Black actors leading American biopics might not be such a bad idea in terms of overseas appeal, aka John Boyega in Detroit, has found a home in Espana. Then we go to the main event: Writer/Comedian (not Comedienne) Janine Brito! We discuss the haunted Poconos Manner, getting lost in the forest, what to do when your family voted for Trump, why you should turn off Reality TV and do something, what's it like to be a lesbian comedian in LA, and create an idea for embroidered pillows on the go! Also someone please call James' mother, and tell her that he is safe in Europe. All this and more!

Nnekay talks about the her turn as the cheesiest audience member for Yan Can Cook. Also Whoops! We made a mistake Ed Skerin was the bad guy in Deadpol. James talks about meeting the legend...Dolores Huerta who might be side eyeing us. WHAT? In Nnekay's Korner she covers some of the ways that you can contribute still to Houston. This was recorded before Irma hit, so be sure to listen to the top of the show where we cover how you can help with Irma relief as well. Links are included in these show notes. Help is needed further than just the first few weeks. In James' Korner we got the return of Quizlet Korner! Some of the topics he covers: Harriet Tubman and the 20 dolla bill, Star Wars and Asian Stars, Todrick Hall, KKK, The Democratic Party, and Bisexual Discrimination. We are still aiming for that goal for 100 reviews by our 100th episode for the Minority Korner Give away! So please write those reviews!!!!

James is back from the Poconos, making Pizza Delivery guys high kick for a tip and Nnekay is MELTING and shouting from the roof tops that climate change is here and showing it's ugly lil head. Just like Nnekay did in MaxFunCon West, James had a BLAST at MaxFunCon East!!! There he met comedian Cristela Alonzo, and also comedian Janine Brito. He taught people to P.E.E- provoke, enlighten, and entertain and of course... started a Conga Line. James leaves us with some amazing tips from Chenjerai Kumanyika (@catchatweetdown) who spoke at Max Fun Con. In James' Korner he is celebrating Labor Day by talking about and honors the POCs who are normally not recognized all that they do for this holiday. In Nnekay's Korner, she is going over what the DACA Program is, how Trump and Sessions are repealing it, and what people who benefited from this program can do and know what their rights are. We are still gearing up for our 100th episode which means, we're aiming to reach 100 reviews for the drawing for our Minority Korner Care Package, so please keep the reviews coming to be entered into the running!

Can Auntie Maxine save us from that BW (basic woman) Taylor Swift and her latest display of white lady privilege? Also, Auntie Maxine... can we say that?

Nnekay is still here, she's still in New York! James is showing her the sights! World Trade Center Monument, The High Line, The Stonewall Inn, a... bone... mall? Also James is excited to share his mutant power, which might not get him accepted into Professor X's institute. Did you know Madonna dated Tupac? The wonder twins discuss. Did you know that DeMario Jackson (from Bachelor in Paradise) asked Britney Spears out? James got to experience the fabulous Phylicia Rashad... sleep for most of the play? In James's Korner, we're discussing a tough topic (Trigger Warning). With the recent suicide of Chester Bennington of Linkin Park, James dives into one of the causes he was incredibly vocal about: Child Molestation. James breaks down some of the statistics from the website Darkness to Light, to squash a lot of the misconceptions that are spread. Also, James shares some tactics on how to protect those children that surround us. Next up! We try something new with a Super Soul Sunday. With all the intense conversations and whirlwind recording, we take a page from Oprah's book and discuss self worth, shared histories, race, and gentrification.

Nnekay is in NEW YORK!!! Any every street is her runway! Once Nnekay got off her jalopy of a plane (after being tortured by children and Tom Ford), James has shown her THE. TOWN. But before we get to that, we cover how the American AssClown sent out tweets banning the trans community from the military, Nnekay and James discuss. In Nnekay's Korner, she gives us the direct opposite of Dunkirk, and examines how American Black GIs were treated and existed in the UK during WWII. The results might be SURPRISING. In James' Korner he starts an open conversation regarding the proposed new HBO show, Confederates. What in the hell are Game of Thrones showrunners, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss THINKING by making a show imagining a world where the South succeeded in secession. Closing out the show, Nnekay and James discuss the new movie obsession- KIDNAP starring our Hollywood QUEEN Halle Berry. You know they're gonna break down that trailer.

The Wonder Twins of Podcasting have transformed into Amelia & Badelia, and one of them... we'll say Badelia (James) explains the entire plot of Beauty & The Beast- the live action version to Nnekay... or rather Amelia (no spoilers because it's pretty much the same as the animated version- but James- we mean Badelia is in to it)! Let's go over the chronological timeline of Lil Kim's face. What happened? She was so cute! We must talk about A Wrinkle in Time and how amazeballs it's going to be! Speaking of Amazing things: Spider-Man! But not The Amazing Spider-Man with angst Andrew Garfield (who Badelia ((James) was a big a fan of)) but Spider-Man Homecoming is swinging into our hearts (see what we did there)? James/Badelia continues the exploration of Queen Califia and the California Blacks from last episode. If they did exist, what happened, and where did they go? If you got a kid in your life Amelia (AKA Nnekay) has just the thing for their summer reading with another booklisticle: Social Justice & Activism Books for the younger folks. Yay!

Were you down with Ewoks? One of the Wonder Twins of Podcasting confesses their love, while the other demands reparations! Don't quite consider yourself a Millennial or apart of Generation X?! Good news theirs a made up sub-sect to make yourself feel better: Xennial. Nnekay breaks down why theirs a lack of women, and specifically women of color in the field of Astronomy and fingers seem to point towards: sexual harassment. Come on Physicist! Keep it together! James is going to blow your mind with the untold story of Queen Califia. Who was this African Queen of California? Was she a myth? Or were here and many Blacks before her living in the New Lands of the Americas long before white European settlers? The answer... might surprise you... or maybe not if your'e listening to this podcast. All this and more on this EPIC episode of Minority Korner!
