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!)

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.

It's the first episode of Minority Korner and no topic is safe. Meet Nnekay & James, and travel with them to many korners. Listen as James butchers Rachel Dolezals name, and Nnekay unloads on the 'Orange Is the New Black' Rolling Stones cover. Plus why can't James sleep, inertnet trolls, summertime Nnekay, the hamburglar, racism in the LGBT Community,  and more. Oh! and there's a quiz korner, and history time!
