Minority Korner

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.

Hey Everybody! Kimberly here. I was so broken-hearted over not being able to share our full episode about Tupac and special thanks to Greg Edwards of Thug Notes for stopping through. Hope you enjoyed the 12 minutes that we did manage to save. Oh and for the record, during our Hip-Hop Quotables segment, I have never in my life read (out loud) so many vile and profane things within a 20 second time span. It was so ridiculously foul I couldn't even get through the reading of the lyrics without laughing. You would have to listen to the episode to know what I'm speaking of. Well, the real reason why I'm writing this is to give you guys some inside on why we chose to talk about Tupac. It all stemmed from a heated discussion Jasper and I had about Pac. I told Jasper that in my opinion Tupac was a "slightly above average" rapper. (this is in terms of rhyming skills) Yes shots were fired - verbal shots that is. We agreed to disagree on several points made but the huge thing that we disagreed on was whether Tupac was a living legend or did he become a legend in death. What do you guys think? I'm really interested in what the people have to say about this. I don't know if we scrapped all of the audio from the episode, but maybe I can talk Jasper into releasing it, despite the poor quality. Feel free to chime in, was Tupac a legend in life or did he become a legend in death?
