Fires, earthquakes, and droughts- California is out of control! Never forget the major earthquake of 2015, and we survived! Are Renaissance fairs for Black people? Alfre Woodard in all her amazingness is joining the Marvel Universe, but Nnekay is not happy with her characters name. James is also making a list and checking it twice (a make out list). Nnekay watched the Backstreet Boys documentary. Nnekay investigates Black Queens and gives them praise, and is about to start a major feud and beef with Queen herself Aretha Franklin. James dives into 'Straight Out of Compton' looking at the true true story of this true story, and a behind the scenes look at the casting of women for the movie. What's Campaign Zero? We're here to tell you, and it's awesome! Plus the Industrial Prison Complex is getting in the hot seat for the Quizlet Corner, and you'll never guess which athlete superstar is being put in the corner, because he sucks as a human being.
NNEKAY'S CORNER, BLACK QUEENS:
STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON
QUIZLET CORNER, INDUSTRIAL PRISION COMPLEX:
Just like Janet Jackson said when her new track hit #1: Bitches need to stay woke! We have pop artist Saturn in the studio, and things are gonna get shady. James has a bug a boo. Did you hear about the one about the Catholic priest, a bagel, and an ear? Target is going gender neutral with it's toys and bedding, and it's a sign of the Apocolaypse because people are FREAKING OUT! Good trolls! How to fuck up your kid the least. CA ain't got no love for grand juries, and which candidates are actually listening to #blacklivesmatter? John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt opened up a Slavery museum, how many slavery museums exist in the country? Also little Matilda is throwing some shade towards director Ronald Emmerich, Madonna has lost her mind, and Donald Trump is... still Donald Trump. All this and more on our big ten episode!

Nnekay literally just got off a plane from the Philippines and is loosing her mind- she was in the future! Nnekay is also running for office and is very behind in the polls. It's Bernie Sanders vs. #Black Lives Matter, but Sanders has an ace up his sleeve to unite movements. James lost his groove, but Nnekay doesn't believe him. It's Black Women's Equal Pay Day so BBHMM! We have our very first special guest Pearl Marill from So You Think You Can Lap Dance, and Crunch Pop (or as we know here from: College!). Nnekay and Pearl battle it out in this weeks quizlet corner about Mariah Carey. James takes a look at some Black Queer writers you should know, specifically Charles M. Blow writer of 'Fire Shut Up in My Bones', and he reveals something nobody knew happened to his cousin. And we're still debating if we should go on the 'Amazing Race'.

Get your JNCO's on cause we're going back in time! But first some short term Nostalgia: Nnekay went to L.A. and she saw some "celebrities". Remember LFO? We kind of do. Should Nnekay and James go on the Amazing Race? We're getting outrageous with JEM & The Holograms. Jem is the ultimate HBIC. Also, this is the true story how the real world has become a drunken frat house. Also we dive into music videos! Where did they go? Looking back were pop teen princesses actually just strippers with voices? This is actually going to be a giant episode about MTV which apparently raised us both.

JURASSIC PARK THE HEELS EDITION:
There are two different movies called Girlhood, about young Black girls, and we're confused. James has trouble pronouncing even more words and reveals his celebrity crush. Buckle down because Femicidio is happening in both of our neighboring countries. But what does Miss USA and the treatment of Aboriginal women in Mexico have in common? (We're not sure they actually do, but some how they're in the same corner). One city has banned drag queens from a prideful celebration. It's not the hunger games, but it is the twitter games, where a celebrity teen tweet feud is raging, and for some reason Andy Cohen has decided to butt his head into it, and in this case he should keep his drunk ass out. Teen sensation Amandal Stenberg is blowing us away with her wisdom around black culture, and what it means to appropriate the culture of others. Listen up Kylie Jenner, we're talking to you. Plus yes... we're still talking about comic con but come on! A gay black superhero? Yes please! Sandra Bland has left us speechless. And this weeks Quizlet corner made it on the cutting room floor but it's in the Bonus Content section, and will give you a hint into next weeks Podcast!
Nnekay isn't wearing any pants, or is she? We have so many updates this week, in chit chat corner. More nerd talk! DC is bringing an animated Black female superheroine to your TV! Nnekay's not wearing pants. More things you apparently can't do while being Black. We have two stories that are practically transformers, where there's more than meets the eye... see what we did there. We crack the case on the infamous "mandingo" that was supposedly terrorizing a university, and uncover the real villian in a case of a population being infected with HIV. Also did you hear about the sequel to 'To Kill A Mockingbird'. It doesn't take Scooby Doo to uncover the mystery of Nosfaratu. Joe Biden and the gays, and who exactly is Ida B. Wells? Let's go to the Korners!
QUIZ CORNER CONTENT:
Don't peak until after you listen!
The gloves are off as Nnekay and James come head to head over a glass (or two) of wine, and Nikola Tesla. But first let's hear about Nnekay's rendezvous with the great Dr. Cornel West. And James played the part of gay uncle and took his nephew to ride roller coasters. It's Comic Con, and we're going to get real nerdy on you. Have you seen the blog 'Every Single Word'? It's the Black Brechtel Test with even lower standards and needs- so come on Hollywood! Get with the program. Also what is going on with theater etiquette!? Is Madonna acting crazy in the theater?

Every Single Word:
It's the 4th of July SPECIAL EDITION. America Ferrera wrote a letter to Donald Trump. Nnekay ate some hot dogs on an island... of Alameda. A woman has a very unlucky day, pregnant, lost in the woods, surrounded be bees, and starts a fire. Stonewall the movie is coming to a multiplex near you, but it's all wrong, one word: erasure. The ex CEO of the House of Mouse (Disney) has lost his damn mind, and he did it in front of Goldie Hawn. Librarians are off to war! The KKK is at it again. And have you seen Rihanna's new music video Bitch Better Have My Money!!!??!? Let's go to the Korners!

Nnekay went to a fancy library conference. The pride parade happened, where were the LGBT folks? The BET awards were eventful. Crazy things are going down in the Dominican Republic, but why? Yay we have gay marriage, but this pride season lets examine the divide around the LGBTQIA community specifically around transphobia, biphobia, and race. Who's going in the Korner this week? What is Ava DuVenray's next movie going to be? Iggy Azalea, Dan Savage, Sister Act, and more! (We're still battling sound issues- trial and error- thanks for keeping with us!)
Dominican Republic and Haiti
You're still here! You're back for episode dos! It's been a crazy week in America, and Nnekay and James dive in on this very special episode of Minority Korner. Hear those 'P's pop' as we still battle sound issues. We talk about Charleston, the Confedrate flag, and GOP responses and reactions. A call to action for white people to join the fight for equality! Did you see that new Madonna video? Let's discuss! Janet Jackson is on her way back, and we hope with even more ridiculous interludes. And what's going on in the Big Brother house this year? All told, debated, and analyzed from the perspective of these two minorities. Plus it's James' birthday, bye bye 20's, and Nnekay sips some wine... loudly.
