James takes us back to a korner where he elaborates about the crisis of homelessness effecting LGBTQ Youth. With it's anniversary coming up soon, Nnekay takes us back to when she talked about the Chicano Moratorium of 1970. What it meant and how it relates to today. We hope you enjoy this travel back in time!! WE'll be back next week with a whole new barrel of laughs for you to enjoy!

It's Friday and we are hot, fresh, sexy, and cool with this episode, bbs! James bring to discussion the new SciFi Natalie Portman thriller, Annihilation directed by Alex Garland (of Ex Machina fame)... are we sensing a little...Whitewashing?! Double N and Lil J discuss the lack of representation for Asian American woman in film, drafts of manuscripts, Tessa and Gina, and James' love for Natalie Portman. Moving forward to the Korners- James continues the Hollywood trend by discussing the movie, Detroit directed by Kathryn Bigelow, is it FUBU aka For Us By Us? They chat about the 1960s riots- how many there actually were. It will surprise you. In Nnekay's Korner- she wants to give an update on the power outage in Puerto Rico caused by Hurricane Maria on September 20th. How many people are still out power, who is in charge of fixing the crisis, and what can we do about it.

Oooh weeee do we have a treat for you! You might have missed it, but Nnekay guested on a special MaxFunCon episode of Lady 2 Lady- she chats and takes audience question and more with Barbara Grey, Tess Barker, and Brandie Posey. But before we get to the episode- The wonder twins talk about the Women's March and how to be an ally. James has a bone to pick with Mike Pence for his twitter feud with Olympian Adam Ripon. Why do we make kids do math on the chalk board in front f everyone?! We also do a quick gratitude check in following James' journey through his 100 Days of Gratitude. Enjoy the show!

We're still in Chicago, and it's still pretty magical! We are mesmerized by how clean this windy, cold ass city is, and they have alleys seems to amaze James (there ain't no alleyways in New York). And is everyone in Chicago a champion ice skater? JamKay also sets out to find and save Kwanzatown Village, potentially a new ABC Family/Hallmark Channel holiday movie vehicle for the Minority Korner hosts. In Nnekay's Korner we talk about climate change.. it's real. It's not a hoax, and the first to go will be Florida. So here's a list of what you can do to help save Florida. Come on ya'll... we know it's Florida... but they need our help. Remember 2014's Gamergate? Did it predict the rise of Trump and the Alt Right through it's wishing of "simpler times", flat out racism, sexism, and ultimate trolling through social media, harassment, and chat rooms? In Quizlet Korner we there are some questions, and we'll find out the answers: Is Mark Anthony is on a Man kissing rampage? Did Mike Pence have a life changing experience at Hamilton? Is Senator Barbara Boxer going out of the Senate like a champ with a last minute call to action? Did Black Lives Matter enter into retirement as a result of Trump?! Find out! Also... what are you opinions about Anita Baker?
