It's the last episode of the summer before the summertime sadness kicks in, and Nnekay and James head to their respective coast lines! James explains the Folsom Street fair to Nnekay like what a harness is. A new season of SNL is firing up and there's good and bad about it's upcoming cast members.  We catch up on TV like Master of None, Atlanta, and get those Oscars ready because here comes Denzel Washington and Viola Davis in August Wilson's 'Fences'. It's that time of year again, time to talk about cultural appropriation, and Nnekay is STILL pissed ya'll ain't getting it about cultural appropriation so she's gonna break it down for you... AGAIN. From dread locks to Mark Jacob's, to Miley Cyrus, to Bon Appetit, and we'll give you a hint- it deals with power. And we know... we're tired... but the election isn't over, and the debates happened... so let's check in with our friends at Fox News to see how they felt the debate went. There are 6 points they're PISSED about when it comes to moderator Lester Holt who they feel pushed the debate in Hillary's favor.  And get ready for the SEXIEST Quizlet Korner yet! You have a LOT to learn this week: Does sex get you closer to God? Are straight slutty more men more likely to get prostate cancer?

It's that time of year again! Yes the Emmy's but most importantly it's the MK Black Suspense Movie Review, as every September Hollywood releases what should be a Lifetime movie to the big screen. The reviews are in: Save your money and watch last years amazing Perfect Stranger, and enjoy our Spoiler Review of 'When The Bough Breaks' or what it should've been called 'Go Tell Your Wife AKA Morris Messes Up'. But first, James might be on Mariah Carey levels of celebrity after his hit San Francisco Show, where like Mariah he doesn't know JLO. It's a historical Emmy's because Black*ish is nominated for Outstanding comedy, the first Black show since 1985... so apparently the Oscars ain't the only thing that are so white. James has some facts and figures on this surprising situation. I mean come on! Where's Urkell's Emmy!? Nnekay is throwing us some history with medical advancements created by Black surgeons in perilous times. Thank you Black doctors for so many life saving techniques and practices. You probably had no idea. Well that's why we're here! Also are you getting down on the Get Down- you will be after James' stark raving mad review (and he's only an episode in).

The reviews are in, Nnekay saw James' summer show 'Champagne is Disastrous', and did you know Black folks LOVE Dolly Parton, Nnekay explains why. Lady Gaga has a new song out and JamKay is into it. Cancer sucks but there's a Black Lady Physicist who may have found a new pioneering technology that could change everything! Longtime running San Francisco institution Beach Blanket Babylon posted a racist casting notice, but is it any different than what theater companies around the country are already doing without posting? We also have some ideas on how to diversify your theater company. Also writer/comedian Carla Lee from Killing My Lobster stops by the Minority Korner and man oh man is she busy with web series, stand up, and a new comedy series "Nice Tan".

It's intervention time and you know it. Many of us have it: PHONE ADDICTION. And we got your back, even though Nnekay is going to go through heavy withdrawals through out the episode.  But first Nnekay and James have a different kind of addiction: binge watching and it is a battle royal between Quantico vs. Homeland vs. Scandal. Also James seems to be quite the socialite these days and witnessed the truth about what happens to a gaggle of girls when they go out clubbing, and who happened to flock towards a gay club: GIRL DOWN! Getting down to business James is going to break down how and why you're addicted to your phone- it's like an addictive casino in your pocket, especially when it comes to your dating apps (aka hookups). Nnekay applauds the social media site Nextdoor because it is FINALLY adding parameters to correct it's users from racially profiling each other! Hooray for change! .  In this Quizlet Korner Nnekay has much to say about White Feminism especially in regards to Lena Denam and Amy Schummer. Plus James has your Back to School sex tips!

James and Nnekay are hot and bothered about Britney's new album, Glory- She is also BACK with her performance at the VMA... which G-Money (whoever that is) tried to lay a big ole smooch on her face. Not to mention she had to go after BEYONCE who SHUT IT DOWN... but was it better than her concert? Colin Kaepernick of the 49ers is facing an unusual amount of grief by flexing his freedom of speech. Cause Nnekay and James to wonder... maybe it's time to pick or creaaaaaate a new national anthem. 

Nnekay's topic for the day is the largest anti-war protest held by American Minorities: the Chicano Moratorium- which protested the Vietnam war as well as the ridiculously large amount of Mexican American soldier death. James is talking about the Church and it's priest who are spreading hate against the LGBT community and are closeted themselves. As well as illegally spending the money of church goers for their own gain. 

Some things included in Quizlet Korner this week are: Dildos, Olympics, and Bath Houses... Think Nnekay can get at least one right this time?
