James is hiiiiiiiiiigh … on caffeine and he takes us on the ride of our life! Today we talk about SHONDA and the year of YES! Is Lauryn Hill crazy?! Who know, but Nnekay sure thinks she has the answers. James tells us all about homelessness of the LGBTQ youth community. Meanwhile, Nnekay dives deep into the #FreeKesha movement. Whaaaat a potential Minority Korner Book Club and we answer our first listener question!!! We're so excited, so excited... We're so scared!

Today on Episode 3 of season 2... or episode 20 if your nasty... we talk about silly as Meryl Streep not understand the concept of race. The goddess Angela Bassett being the her amazing awesome self. Nnekay is just too damn tired for the club. James talks about the world thinks the Super Bowl was one big ole Black Gay Affair... which sounds familiar.... hmmmmmm Minority Korner much?!?!?!? Speaking of blackness, Nnekay actually explains what the black panthers stood for. James tries to stump Nnekay again with Quizlet Corner and there may or may not have been a mention of Planet Fitness which we SWEAR is not a sponsor of ours.... but we'll take the monies if you wanna give it ussssssssssssss.

Happy Black History Month! But every month is Black History Month at Minority Korner, and some of you might be asking: why isn't there a Black History Month? Well, Nnekay has your answer… and it's short. Did you see the Beyonce & Coldplay music video? Is Coldplay at it again in their cultural "appreciation"/appropriation? #TweetLikeAWhiteGay has set the internet ablaze! Plus there are plenty of things you use that you probably had no idea that it was invented by a Black person. And this week in Quizlet Korner, James is sure he's got Nnekay stumped! Here we go for our 19th episode!

We're back, and this season we're coming at you from coast to coast. James is finally back from Europe now in New York, and Nnekay is still holding it down in the Bay Area. James survived his first Blizzard. And if you that the Blizzard was white- did you see the Oscar nominations. We're going over the timeline of all the craziness over #OscarsSoWhite, and everyone's got something to say from Jadah Pinket, to Sarah Palin, to self hating troll Stacy Dash. There's talks of a boycott brewing. There's a new young little Black girl taking on America's lack of diversity in children books. Plus your favorite corners are back: Quizlet Korner AND History Korner. This week in Quizlet corner James tests Nnekay's knowledge of what he may or may have not done on his European Journey AND a bonus quiz about our favorite whacky Alaskan Sarah Palin. And History Korner has Nnekay sweatin'. Plus we practice our accents. Welcome back to the Minority Korner!
