Minority Korner

James got that 'milk gift" and he is #blessed, he also narrowly escaped joining a cult. Thank goodness a certain body part saved him. After escaping the cult, Nnekay and James talk about Neil Degrasse Tyson and the universe, which initially freaks Nnekay out- but with Degrasse Tyson and his show, Cosmos' help the universe can be accessible and even... magical? In Nnekay's korner she tells of life and times of Tyrus Wong, the Chinese American artist who radically influenced the Disney classic, Bambi- but his journey to America and the story of his survival might be even more fascinating. Remember the "It Gets Better" Campaign? In James' korner he is seeing if there has been any change in the 7 years since it was first launched. James uncovers some currents facts about LGBT youth, analyses some recent articles that say that the campaign didn't work, and ultimately gives some tips on how to work through those moments in life when things seem bleak. We also have an Ask Minority Korner Anything!!!! This time from Eboni S. and relationships and vegetarians. We also cover such topics as: the wigs of scandal and just fake hairs in general, recommendation for Hasan Minhaj Netflix special Homecoming King and the book This Is What A Librarian Looks Like, which features one of your favorite Wonder Twins of Podcasting.

Adam Ruins Everything Episode 20: Doug Massey Gives Us the Facts on Immigration

| 0 comments

From the push to build a border wall to the recent executive order temporarily banning immigrants from Muslim-majority countries, there are so many emotions associated with the current immigration policy proposals. But what are the real facts regarding immigration history in this country? And what are immigrants'  actual impacts on our society? Today we try to answer those questions with our guest Professor Doug Massey. Doug is a Princeton Sociology Professor who appeared on Adam Ruins Immigration. His research focuses on international migration, race and housing, discrimination, education, urban poverty, and Latin America, especially Mexico. On the episode, Doug and Adam discuss the negative net migration flow of immigrants coming into United States from Mexico, the United States' reliance on migrant labor, and what reasonable immigration policy looks like.

It's time to "get Jazzy with it" in 2017! It's Inauguration Day! We hope you got some boots for the Kwanzaa, Chanukah, Christmas, Winter Pagan Holiday because we think you'll be getting a lot of use out of them this year! This is the year to be gellin?! James walks us through his yearly interrogation by the British Immigration office which usually turns into therapy around his ex's. Does he share too much? Why were so many people against The O.A. on Netflix? James has a theory about this beautiful story, that we're not used to in our world of negative stories, violence, and anti-heroes, a story of hope might be a bit hard to digest these days. Meanwhile Nnekay is watching Scottish titties on Outlander. We dive into some theories about the advance technologies of Ancient Egypt as well as the History of Christmas. It's not as wholesome as it is now, and was once outlawed by the no fun Pilgrims. It's a new year and a New Nnekay, and she's crafted her very OWN list on how to prevent future terrorist that grow up to be crazy Dylan Roof terrorists by combating casual racism before it gets too big. We have our first Ask Minority Korner Anything of the new year, giving "advice for those who "pass". Enjoy!

James is back from his amazing Palm Springs Spring Break... in October?! He witnessed first hand the invasion of the Bachelorette Parties in Gay Clubs... THEY'RE TAKING OVER, and Nnekay just CANNOT handle it. She would much rather celebrate Helen Keller. Nnekay is no longer a Bridezilla... but a GUESTZILLA, ya'll betta watch out, because she's coming to tear up your NEXT wedding. In our Korners, James is educating why your camera and film miiiiight just be racist... and why is there a woman named Shirley Cards involved... and is she wearing black gloves?! Nnekay discusses how privatized prisons might be coming to an end soon... but while this is a cause to celebrate... we still have a ton of work to go. In Quizelet Korner will Nnekay be stumped by James' questions this time? We cover NBC's Mail Order Bride, Solange Knowles, Britney Spears, Shonda Rhimes, and the transgender community. Enjoy the show!
