We are feeling easy, breezy, and beautiful this week. We further deconstruct Bitch Betta Have My Money. James went to a bourgeois club doctor. We take a trip to Shondaland! Nnekay wound up in the Bermuda triangle of San Francisco. Apparently political correctness is running rampant amongst our American Universities and reeking havoc on millennial ability to critically think... or are old professors just really wanting to hold onto saying offensive things? Bernie Sanders wants to take down private prisons. This weeks history corner looks at Vanessa Williams the first black Miss America, and we go off an deep tangent about Lifetime movies.
The teenage dream episodes continue, with an episode full of teenage dreamyness! But first Nnekay's in need of a corn chip intervention, and gives hair tips that may lead to suffocation. We need to talk about Raven Simone, Chris Brown has "love" for the LGBT community, and we continue the conversation: can you separate the art from the artist? But most of all we need to talk about teenage dream Rowan Blanchard of 'Girl Meets World', the first member of the Minority Korner Party Korner! It's time to Marvel at the Marvel Korner because they are diversifying their roster, and the people behind the scenes. Taylor Swift is still basic. Australia did a study that asks: Is sexual racism different than actual racism...? They're probably the same thing but let's look. Plus actor/activist Anthony Williams of hit film 'The Diary of a Teenage Girl' stops by the Korner. Teen sexual awakening, subtle racism, white fragility, activism through social media, and more, we talk about it all with Anthony! And then Nnekay disappears and you wont believe where James finds her.

SEXUAL RACISM VS... RACISM:
It's the teenage dream episode, as Minority Korner is now a teen... in epsidoes and it's awkward! We share our teen secrets in a new segment for our teen episodes called "Teen Secret Corner". But first in adult land, James is a high profile choreographer for a local tech commerical, and even here (on the lower end of the) casting table there is some weird racial things happening. The reviews are in, Nnekay has seen 'Temple of Poon'. Adventrues with Nnekay at Michaels in the DIY section. There's white dudes trying to explain slavery... Slave Trade the video game exists... and the creator is hell bent on trying to convince you this game is a great idea and necessary. We know we were supposed to do an all teen episode, but we miss understood the assignment. Why's Burning Man so White? The originator has an explanation. Super Minority Korner fan, Ryan Christo from the band One Hundred Percent, stops by the corner, who also works in the tech industry and weighs in on tech folks and the changing climate of the Bay Area. Ryan faces off against Nnekay in this weeks quizlet corner. Also Ryan has a gripe about the Minority Korner and is calling us out on Empire.
RYAN CHRISTO'S BAND ONE HUNDRED PERCENT:
Empire! Did you watch that crazy show- we're both caught up, and it's time to talk about Cookie! James is writing a book on the art of getting that special someone to fall in love with you... or just sleep with you, and it all involves one single word. The VMA's happened, we don't want to talk about it, but how can we not, with the surprising presidential announcement. Taylor Swift has given Nnekay more reason to call her basic. James had a major star sighting (remember he watches a lot of Real World so set your bar low). We check in the world of allyship, and see how two different ally's are taking two very different approaches to creating visibility for Black folks. Two VERY... different approaches... one's a pickup artist. Also the entire judicial system is even more fucked up then we thought, and it's starting early in the juvenile detention arena. Also today's quiz is going to look at the myths and truths around the Rentboy.com bust.
