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!

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? Is Britney losing her mind... again? Is Patti LuPone putting folks in check? Find out! Also we have bonus material! As if this episode couldn't get in longer! Find out what we did actually cut.

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.
