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!

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!!!

Did you know that June is African American Music Appreciation Month?! Well now you do! The Wonder Twins try with all their might to talk about this, but Jimmy Carter just keeps showing up to steal the show! James needs tips on how to leave a date early and Nnekay has dubbed herself the Date Referee giving tips and calling it when the gig is up! Should James trust a "walk up dentist?" Nnekay says no and tells a tale of caution. In James' Korner he addresses the Supreme Court ruling in favor for Jack Phillips- who refused to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple. What does this mean for the future, what has happened in the past, and how we can stay woke to discrimination with love and respect. Inspired by the recent Oakland, Ca events involving BBQ Becky and Jogger Joe, Nnekay talks gentrification- what and what not to do.
