James is in the building, and it's a Minority Korner Thanksgiving: leftovers edition! Nnekay is a master crotcheter and all James sees is a potential business (you know his inner Dina Lohan), and the conversation moves onto passing on traditions. Speaking of let's talk about Black Thanksgiving: how/why do POC's celebrate this colonial holiday rooted in the slaughtering of First Nations People? What does it mean to us? And there's an 'aha' moment about spending Thanksgiving with your tribe. James has an unchecked idea of how Thanksgiving became a holiday.  In the Korners Nnekay has a listicle (it's the end of the year and people LOVE lists) about Black Sci Fi you should be dialing into, from comics, to fiction, graphic novels, and web series, there is a lot of dope stuff happening! Time to queer up your Thanksgiving with a Quizlet! And James has tips for all our LGBT tribe on how to survive your family for Thanksgiving. Plus spending time with your family as they get older, surprising your dad for his 60th, and all hail Queen Janet! She is on tour and James has the inside scoop on how to score great seats for pop legends the day of! Ticketmaster... we're on to you!

Synchronize your watches because it's time... to give a fuck! We weigh in on the NFL Boycott and make an attempt to see both sides. James kicks it off (see what we did there) looking at two articles from the Root on opposite sides of the conversation. We'll catch you up on the man that started it all, Colin Kapernick, and theorize the real reason he's not getting picked by a team, why the NBA isn't having this same problem supporting it's players in their peaceful protests, and just what you can do to get involved! If you haven't participated in any #resist/#persist movements this year: now's the time! Nnekay continues the conversation examining the history of our National Anthem that we hear are sports games all the time, along with it's author. It might not surprise you that it comes from racist roots, and Francis Scott Key, author of the Star Spangled Banner... was a white supremacist. Also did you know about the missing 3rd stanza? What got his beef started with Black folks, turning him into a past day Taylor Swift? But FIRST! James is back to the Estados Unidos, and is back to his Carmen San Diego tricks again. Jetsetting to Portland for a Marvel THWIP Shoot in Portland, James has something he'd like to discuss in regards to this "liberal" town. Also legendary Voodoo Donuts... we need to talk. Life After Hate is an organization that needs your dollas! It was started by former white supremacist in Portland, working to end the irradiation of the KKK... See why we need to talk about Portland? Most importantly we need to talk about our friend... Ms. Jackson- cause we at nasty (definitely living up to our EXPLICIT in this episode). James has some inside scoop on why she's crying on stage, after her divorce, and what really happened in the marriage... ALLEGEDLY (for legal reasons). Also, Nnekay has tips about the power of a Manj wig. Ever on an airplane and not sure what to watch? James has been on so many planes he's got your airplane movie reviews! Rough Night Out, Baywatch, Alien:Covenant, The Mummy, Unbreakable, which one's to watch and which to.. skip! Stick around to the end to hear James' bombshell announcement!
