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!
