James is coming in singing, once again, to another... nasty song! Before the Wonder Twins could even jump into this story, it had already been processed, we're talking about SNL's latest hired (now fired) cast member: Shane Gillis. Can racist jokes be funny? Did SNL make the right move? Why did they hire him? Chelsea Handler's new documentary "Hello, It's Me Privilege," is out on Netflix, and according to James it is mandatory viewing for white folks. Nnekay is still on the fence about Hendler, but is she showing how we can people can evolve, and how we must give space for that? Did the new 'Knives Out Trailer' give out too much of it's plot? Who creates these trailers anyways? James has the scoop on old Hollywood. Hold onto your butts because Kerry Washington and Sterling K. Brown are joining forces in a Mr. & Mrs. Smith esque movie: SHADOW FORCE, and the Wonder Twins can't wait! In the main event Nnekay has found a new website that is singing to her heart and walks us through an article by , about call out culture: 6 Signs that Your Callout is About Ego and not Accountability- a great check for all of us navigating our activism spaces, and trying our best to make the world a better place. James is still riding high off his last weeks corner about the Moor's and is keeping his Quizlet Korner in the past with some Queer History facts! Did archeologist find a pair of gay lovers buried next to each other from the 6th century? Did Shakespeare coin the term 'Drag'? When was the first porn created? Is Batman older than you think? All this and more on this week's Minority Korner!

It's halloween, which means something scurry that maybe used to bring joy to many is lurking around every corner: Clowns! Ah! And they even have a sequel to a very particular clown coming back to haunt us. The twins lament over their fears: IT! It's back! Is there a scientific reason as to why people don't like clowns? The Wonder Twins also piece together the real meaning behind a very popular 90s dance jam and surprise: it's nasty. It's the 90s! James is freshly back from seeing the new and exciting version of OKLAHOMA! This ain't yo mamma's Oklahoma, on this dark take on this usually up beat American musical. This transitions into a conversation of how to do a remount of a classic play.Nnekay has some suggestions for him to see next. The duo talk about the rise in violence against the LGBTQ community, and is the economy really booming in Trump's America? Also the shitty tactics employed by the North Carolina State Representative to get bills paid on 9/11. The main event is all about The Moors! James breaks down who they are and how they brought alllllll the magic to Europe, brining them out of the Dark Ages and into the Renaissance giving us advancements in education, hygiene, food, medicine, dining, sexuality, music, technology, agriculture, the modern city, and more! The Moore's are giving us more, and it's time we give them credit, as once again Black folks and their contributions have been washed out of history. Not today on Minority Korner! James will probably drag Europe for there sad dark living before the Moors came in and Fixed Their Lives! Get ready to have your mind blown about the Moor's!

The Wonder Twins are back- no more voicemail messages they are talking person to person! Missy Elliot may have been celebrated at the VMAs (a little too late) but Nnekay noticed a huge problem with her performance... a certain R&B princess was missing. Is James really friends with Beyonce & Jay-Z? Or was it a dream? Speaking of Jay-Z sure did step in it this week. Jay-Z Mr. Got Colin Kapernick's back on take a knee, seems to have flipped the script and aligned himself with the NFL. Is he shcukin' and jivin, or jumping into the arena? The twins discuss. James seems to have come back from Europe more able to see both sides to everything. Does Nnekay get her comedic writing from her dreams? In the main event Nnekay stops the rumor mill for Representative Illhan Omar. Nnekay breaks down her heroic story, truly representing the American Dream, and the work she's done, and what she's been up against. In a new segment called "James Asks a Question" he poses to our friendly neighborhood librarian his burning question over the last few weeks: Sex in the stacks? Fact or fiction based on the latest season of 'Dear White People'. Also please watch the Great Hack on Netflix if you haven't!
