Happy Halle Days! We are bringing back Kwanzaa, straight out of the vaults. Why? Because it's some of our best segments, and... we kind of forgot how to do Kwanzaa so we figured you did too for our longtime listeners, and new and fresh info for our newer listeners. But first! James talks about his near death peanut allergy attack through the streets of New York, where his survival instincts kicked in. Kwanzaa came early, Omarosa got the boot! Maybe she'll have a Scrooge like awakening? Get ready to revisit a magical journey as we rediscover and explore Kwanzaa. How well do you know Kwanzaa? We'll take a quiz sponsored by PBS, (that gets really competitive... by James) before diving into it's origins. James talks about it's history, importance, and meanings, and Nnekay will walk you through how you can celebrate this beautiful holiday celebrating African American Awesomeness. Also join Nnekay and James as they plan their Kwanzaa Albums, and future Kwanzaa movies and TV projects. Will they beat out Oprah and Gayle for King and Queen of Kwanzaa? Stay tuned to the very end for James' special announcement! 

Happy Kwanzaa!

Minority Korner Guide to a Gay Bar: Straight Guy Edition Part 3- Understanding the History of Queer Culture
Dec 15, 2017

No terrorist got James this week! Nnekay went to an avant guard Bill Murray live performance and apparently the hipsters of San Francisco were drunkenly not hear for it. Also did Bill Murray set up an awkwardly racist caricature, pro confederacy moment? Nnekay's got the side eyes ready. The Golden Globes nominations are in and we've been snubbed, and by we, we mean POC's. Still so many white nominations! James is perplexed with all the Black excellence on TV from Queen Sugar, to Atlanta, to She's Gotta Have It, which brings up a great discussion. Spike Lee has updated his 80's classic of a young Black woman who doesn't have her shit together, queerness, sexuality, and feminism. And would She's Gotta Have It be more embraced by the feminist community if it were starring and written by a white woman like Leah Dunham? Let's continue our conversation about PrEP! What is it? How does it work? What is the debate? Why are some for it, and some against it? What is the fear or celebration? And who has access to it? And we have some alarming info about infection rates amongst young folks. Apparently Nnekay is the Chancellor/President of School of Don't Trust A Bitch. Nnekay's got all the tips of what to watch for when on the net, some of what you're reading is paid content known as Native Advertisement, which is growing in our media in crazy ways. Nnekay's got it's origins through advertorials, banner ads, and to sponsored content, and how it's growing, and doesn't seem to be going away. How will this impact our media sources and their credibility? How can you protect yourself when in information land? And Charles sit down or go home!
