James and Nnekay are hot and bothered about Britney's new album, Glory- She is also BACK with her performance at the VMA... which G-Money (whoever that is) tried to lay a big ole smooch on her face. Not to mention she had to go after BEYONCE who SHUT IT DOWN... but was it better than her concert? Colin Kaepernick of the 49ers is facing an unusual amount of grief by flexing his freedom of speech. Cause Nnekay and James to wonder... maybe it's time to pick or creaaaaaate a new national anthem.
Nnekay's topic for the day is the largest anti-war protest held by American Minorities: the Chicano Moratorium- which protested the Vietnam war as well as the ridiculously large amount of Mexican American soldier death. James is talking about the Church and it's priest who are spreading hate against the LGBT community and are closeted themselves. As well as illegally spending the money of church goers for their own gain.
Some things included in Quizlet Korner this week are: Dildos, Olympics, and Bath Houses... Think Nnekay can get at least one right this time?
Remember to #BeFabulousFriday
James and Nnekay have been running ragged! James has a show debuting this week, Champagne White is Disastrous! (Oasis SF) and Nnekay's uterus is On. The. Mend! So they need a break. But of course they would never leave you guys high and dry! So here is a little bite sized episode of Minority Korner. Some how we still manage to cover the olympics including: that turd Ryan Lochte and dear sweet Gabby Douglas. We give an update on the North Dakota Access Pipeline... James lets us know about a Prince from Jordan seeking asylum. James lets us know about Britney's new album... we even manage to squeeze in a tiny little Quizlet Korner... about good ole Janet Jackson! We'll be back with a regular sized episode next week... in the mean time keep sharing the love and spreading the news!
GO SEE THE SHOW JAMES IS IN: http://sfoasis.com/event.cfm?id=170572
This week we are doing the work that 24 hour "news" networks (entertainment channels) aren't doing and we're going to report some ACTUAL stories that you all should be paying attention to. But first, Nnekay has survived her surgery and she has all of the gory, delicious details, and photos, which you can't see because this is a podcast, but James has seen them. JettSetter Jones AKA James flew to LA for work for a day, and may have eaten people, does LA really turn you into a monster? Also Nnekay has a mind blowing theory about The Little Mermaid, and we may have insight as to where Hamilton star Lin Manuel Miranda might be taking the new version he's helming, or at least we have some notes on where the story should go. Nnekay is shinning light on the North Dakota Access Pipeline, which is potentially going to wreak havoc on Native American reservations. NSFW (Naked Sword Film Works) could be changing gay porn forever, and for the better, it's everything we've ever wished gay porn would be, and what we always knew it could be. Also how close is James to the gay porn industry? Quizlet Korner is all about the Louisiana Flooding nobody seems to be paying attention to, and we're giving a giant fuck you to a certain reporter attempting to out athletes at the Olympics.
Nnekay sets The Facebooks a blaze with a debate: are gay men and black women fierce? Is it time to retire this over used phrase? And "When Dez Nuts Attack" will James survive? This could be the last episode for our Korner kid James, but before he goes he'll tell all about his adventures at his first ever music festival 'Outside Lands', and he's got three words for you: Lionel Mutha Fuckin' Richie... ok that was four. The Olympics are here and it's hella sexy, between the names, the shiftlessness, and the USA Men's Gymnastics team who are 'thirsty' for some attention- it might be too much for James to handle. So we'll switch gears and look over the history of LGBT representation and involvement in the Olympics, as we hit record breaking numbers this year. Nnekay has the low down on a new show being headed by two Black Queens of art and entertainment called Queen Sugar. Led by Ava Devernery, it serves as a rally cry to female directors behind a new project on OWN. Who are these ladies collaborating on a new project, and what's it about? In the Quizlet Korner: is the San Francisco Stud gay bar closing? Do you want some cream with your coffee at potential sexy new cafe in England? What beautiful thing has happened to a survivor of the Pulse nightclub attack? Find out this week on Minority Korner!
We're back! In more ways than one. Nnekay and James are physically back in the same time zone, same space, and same park, that's right we're back in Dolores Park, will things get as crazy as last time? Nnekay explains the history of pigeons, and James tells his tales of cheep peep shows, and sexy fairs. In the issues korner Nnekay sheds light on other movements outside of #BlackLivesMatter, that's right there's other movements effecting change. James has a DNC news roundup! This year at the DNC we had a lot of 'firsts' as movements are having effects on our electorate and party system in more ways than you think. Also James calls out Bernie or Bust, which is big, because as you recall Minority Korner feels the burn! Quizlet Korner has a whole new set of rules as we talk about Matt Damon is everyone's savior, male body dysmorphia, and poisonous vagina. All on this weeks episode of Minority Korner!
It's our tribute to Larry Bird episode! Just kidding! But hold on to your butts as we dish on random subjects from 'Crazy Ex Girlfriend' to the debate around the new out Star Trek character. Should you be watching 'Stranger Things'? YES! Nnekay takes sides on the feud that most didn't even know existed between Charlize Theron and one of the Sister Sister... sisters. James jumps into the perplexing nature of the RNC especially when it comes to the gays there both in and out of the Log Cabin closet. And what's Third Eye Blind doing there? In a more positive corner Nnekay is shinning some light on a community doing some good for others in Berkeley, as it lives up to it's name 'The City of Refuge'. Are Ghostbuster toys selling? Are Muslims being targeted for discrimination on planes? Are Latinos para Trump? Does that even make any sense? Find out in this weeks Quizlet Korner.
We are not reporting from the RNC- because that would be dangerous for us. We are still internationally recording, and James has a bird's eye view of all the crazy Republican politics, safely from Europe. Let's talk about the terrifying circus that is the Republican National Convention. Nnekay speaks about a hashtag near and dear to her heart #LoudBlackWomen, and it's celebration, and empowerment of Black women to be themselves. James is going to myth bust some gender and race stereotypes, and we need to have a very important conversation about white on white crime. This week's Quizlet Korner might actually be legit. Did Stevie Wonder go crazy at a concert? Is Grand Theft Auto taking place at a Pride Parade? Are Homosexuals lacing fireworks with chemtrails to turn everyone gay?! Find out!
James is STILL across the whole planet from Nnekay and living it up in Amsterdam with Bae. He met the parents and may or may not have bonded over the EuroCup and some Canal Tours.
