We got a frown town of an episode for you guys this week- but don't fret! We're still going to bring the entertainment! Both Korners this week are covering things you might not have learned in school- Nnekay is tackling when the US blamed the loss of jobs on Mexicans taking them and started to deport anyone who had Mexican heritage... including US Citizens... sounds familiar....welp this happened during the Great Depression. James is covering the Taino people, their culture, where they existed and thrived before Christopher Columbus and his destructive ass decided to come stopping into town. We also cover Neil DeGrasse Tyson's Sexual Misconduct, Kevin Hart and his racist dated birthday parties, Scarlet Witch getting the short stick, Barbara Lee being scammed against, and the Manhattan Young Democrats loosing it's POC leadership. Let's head into it!

This week you better have your eyes lubricated because we are side eyeing EVERYTHANG- from California and it's horrible history of the genocide of Indigenous People, to a certain celebrity who just keeps fucking up! But before we get to the korners James is super excited about A Star Is Born, and Nnekay joins in on the the questionable reason as to why we even need another Lion King, is this one even "live action"? The duo also talk about when to have tough conversations with people- James gives examples and Nnekay gives more examples as to why the many tiny mistreatment of black women in the medical field could lead to Black Maternal Mortality. Let's get to it!

We hope all of you are full off of the feast from the previous day! Now we have a FEAST for your earholes! Nnekay will be making Black Friday actually Black, by giving you guys some black owned businesses to do all your holiday shopping with! James has dusted off our friend the Quizlet Korner... this time it's all about the Bubonic Plague... of course there is a twist. But before that we get into what Shanice is up too, other than smiling and liking our smiles, notes about American Son staring Kerry Washington on Broadway, kick ass Viola Davis in Widows, and Marianne Williamson's EPIC 2020 announcement!

Halloween might be over, but is this a spook ass episode! But first! We're talking about James' new flirtation with fame! Stacey Abram and her monumental race in Georgia, her celeb supporters and how The View is helping her spread the news about voter suppression. We're also talking about how Kanye might be leaving politics behind... PHEW! In the Korners Nnekay is talking about Trump and his bullshit, this week it's his threat of removing Birthright Citizenship, the 14th Amendment plays into this, what can, and what can't happen. James breaks down the new spread of fascism in Brazil with the election of Jair Bolsonaro- who is blatantly sexist, homophobic, racist, and in favor of dictatorships... that's just the tip of the iceberg. Shutter... Don't forget to vote on the 6th, everyone!!!

MKEP 151: CC Me! CC Me! (Fighting Back Against The Memo, Transgender Rights, Megyn Kelly, Blackface, Halloween)

Show: 
Minority Korner

This week Nnekay and James are fighting back against the awful memo that was passed around to major agencies in our government about the definition of gender. Before we get to the main event, James and Nnekay wonder... is Halloween still fun? Speaking of Halloween, Megyn Kelly has some questions about costumes as well, specifically Blackface. Let's just say she's WRONG in her opinions. Luke Cage and Iron Fist are getting cancelled, which makes James wonder if Disney has something up it's sleeves- James also elaborates on his newest obsession: DocuDramas! James kicks of the first korner by explaining what this memo is all about, and how it can impact the lives of Transgender and Gender Non Conforming people. James also gives tips on how we can fight back against this hateful ass memo and what we can uplift and support each other. Nnekay takes the baton by giving more tips on self preservation for POC transgender and gender non conforming people. She also gives a trusty dusty list of books that celebrate and lift up the voices of those apart of the community. Also did James manage to get yelled at by George Takei? I think you know the answer.

See James perform at the Broadway Comedy Club, Sat Oct 27th @6pm!

We start this episode off by talking about our legends and their Twitter personas. Cher = good, while Bette Midler... surprisingly NOT. Taylor Swift is coming up roses, while Kanye shows us his ass and his simple iPhone code. We got another false accusation from a white woman blaming a NINE year old boy of sexual assault... WHAT?! Wahooooo casting news for Birds of Prey. James breaks down two important documentaries you should check out: Dirty Money and Active Measures- Trump is just the puppet and Putin is a dangerous form KGB mastermind who must be stopped. For the Main event we got a Minority Korner Movie Review about Netflix RomCom (?) Nappily Ever After starring the fabulous Sanaa Lathan ... was it good? You'll just have to listen to find out. We also have a quickie review of The Hate U Give.

Coming in strong with the duo discuss what they recently viewed! Nnekays talks about seeing Spike Lee's Blackklansman  move, and James was inspired by Notorious RBG. James also had an interesting experience with a woman in Starbucks... should we yearn for the better days of the 1950s? Nah. What the hell is Melania wearing and what historical implications does it have. Hint: it's not good. Nnekay talks about all the new and exciting Asian and Asian-American actors on Fall TV Premiers. James wants us to Queer the Vote, but highlighting some LGBTQ politicians running this coming November!

Insecure just ended it's season and the duo can barely believe it. Give that show more episodes, dammit! James watched the HBO documentary on Jane Fonda and was reminded why he loved her so much. Such an amazing life! Nnekay could relate since she watched the recent Quincy Jones Documentary. It's wonderful to honor our heroes while they are alive. Nnekay found a new video game called Supreme Courtship... about dating justices... which is as problematic as you would think it is. In the Korners- James is Getting us pumped for this November with ALL the facts on why it is truly important and necessary to make sure we all get out there and VOTE. He breaks down the Michael Moore Film 11/9 and how this could be the possible end to our democracy. Nnekay has a another great book list for you- this time on how to teach your children about consent and help curb toxic masculinity. Let's get to it!!!

These wonder twins sure are cranky! Some might even say Crotchety! Not really, though! They're here to first discuss the Emmy's which neither of them watched- and dive into a deep discussion as to where IS the line between being PC and comedy. Next up, something they both did see: Captain Marvel Trailer. Whew Lawd this looks good! Also was it weird for Vulture Magazine to feature a story about Soon-Yi Previn written by one of Woody Allen's friend? On to the main event- It's QUIZLETTE Time, Back 2 Skool edition. James guides Nnekay through some of the hottest topics including, Violas Davis and The Help, Bi-Pride Parade, Julie Chen...
