The gloves. Come. Off. It is our 2nd annual fight! And this might be the one that breaks the Korner (put probably not). Nnekay and James haven't disagreed this much since Tesla back in episode 5. Stripped from the cutting room floor it's all of our bonus segments from the past month that were cut for time, but woah is this some juicy material. First James tackles the coded gay characters in Rogue One, and calls out the film industry for it's lack of gay representation, and points out some TV shows are representing. But first there's a fight. Then Nnekay gives us another fabulous list of books every Black teenager (and/or human being) needs to read. It is an action packed episode! So hold on to your butts!
It's time to "get Jazzy with it" in 2017! It's Inauguration Day! We hope you got some boots for the Kwanzaa, Chanukah, Christmas, Winter Pagan Holiday because we think you'll be getting a lot of use out of them this year! This is the year to be gellin?! James walks us through his yearly interrogation by the British Immigration office which usually turns into therapy around his ex's. Does he share too much? Why were so many people against The O.A. on Netflix? James has a theory about this beautiful story, that we're not used to in our world of negative stories, violence, and anti-heroes, a story of hope might be a bit hard to digest these days. Meanwhile Nnekay is watching Scottish titties on Outlander. We dive into some theories about the advance technologies of Ancient Egypt as well as the History of Christmas. It's not as wholesome as it is now, and was once outlawed by the no fun Pilgrims. It's a new year and a New Nnekay, and she's crafted her very OWN list on how to prevent future terrorist that grow up to be crazy Dylan Roof terrorists by combating casual racism before it gets too big. We have our first Ask Minority Korner Anything of the new year, giving "advice for those who "pass". Enjoy!
James is back from his holiday in the U.K. and he brings news: In England the hottest ticket in town is... The Bodyguard the Musical AKA a Whitney Houston tribute, and Broadway level it ain't. After this segment Nnekay and James will probably not be allowed to visit London's theater district the West End because of all the shade but James just might be West End bound anyways. We catch up on our Kwanzaa Celebrations. As promised James is delivering just as he teased last year, we are divining into the history of homosexuality in Africa, debunking the myth that it is a thing brought to the continent by white colonizers. Surprise! Africa's always been gay! We get subversive in this controversial Quizlet Korner, where it might be time to breath, think, and put the torches down. Is Vivica A. Fox's ladies only/no gays allowed Vegas show homophobic? Did she apologize? Does she need to? Did J LO beat out Mariah Carey in the battle of NYE performances by actually having a rehearsal? Is Frank Ocean's mom demanding a homophobic gospel singer be removed from her son's new album? Did Black Lives Matter really kidnap and torture a man? Like... Really??? Did James remove his troll from his life? What exactly IS The Bodyguard Musical? All this and more on this week's Minority Korner!
Happy New Year! We made it to 2017! What are your New Year's Resolutions? Nnekay and James share their goals for 2017, or how to not end up being bedraggled by the end of the year. We also cover what's hot to watch on Netflix. In the first Quizlet Korner of the new year it's a clean slate, as Nnekay starts off a winner to find out where is the truth behind Shemar Moore's sexuality, Lee Daniels potentially having a few more missteps with his latest series Star, a new law for hair dresser/stylists, or a local politician getting new laws in FAVOR to support trans gendered youth. And another gem from Chicago, we have our unreleased full interview with brilliant, talented, hilarious Shantira Jackson of Second City, as well as an activist, comedian extraordinaire is she is going to drop some motivating truth bombs on us. Looks like this new year is off to a GREAT start!
