Nnekayy is potentially on her death bed with fever dreams of Michelle Obama. Is this entire episode just a dream of hers? James Olivia Pope'd it to D.C., and Nnekay survived her Bachelorette, though now she's on her death bed- so maybe she didn't. James tackles Hollywood White Washing: the Asian Edition- we're looking at you Dr.Strange, and Ghost in a Shell- and more! Nnekay has another list: This time of awesome African children cartoons. This weeks Quizlet has Nnekay guessing… the game itself! Is the GOP turning on itself with death threats to each other, are these lions gay? Are Jay-Z and Beyonce moving to the Bay Area? Let's Figure it out!!!!!

Nnekay (AKA Dawn's Old Face) tells a horrific tale of a night out in El Cerrito. James tells of a night out in NYC both are prime examples of these two aging Korner Folk. Nneaky dives into aisle discrimination involving Black hair care products.  James examines the history of LGBT characters in Cartoon, and specifically highlights the importance of Sailor Moon in most Queer kids upbringing. Quizlet Korner has you covered from Major League Baseball to the Panama papers. Plus we have to Free Brandy! And we look at Black Girls Rock!

Nnekay and James are back on their respective coasts, and Nnekay is a woman on demand. James lost his I.D and is incredibly confused as to what city he's currently in. We dive into the Hamilton casting notice controversy.  and Nnekay and James talking about breeding possibilities involving a poodle. James continues his 2 part investigation of RuPaul, and if you thought last week was problematic- hold onto your butts this week. Nnekay shines light on 5 Japanese American woman who were doing it up in the civil rights movement. And as usual we have a Quizlet Korner that is just as random as ever!

Nnekay and James are reunited and recording from Dolores park, on Easter Sunday- what could possibly go wrong?! (EVERYTHING!) We scope out the diversity (lack there of) of the park. Nnekay looks into the Unfair and Lovely campaign in India. James starts his 2 part investigation into the complicated, brilliant, yet problematic RuPaul who is essentially a Minority Korner Burrito. We also plug lots of things (you'd think we're getting endorsements). Quizlet Korner gets crazy, we might murder someone in the park, and uhhhhh Joey Brown stops on by. Get ready for the wildest Minority Korner to date!
