This week you better have your eyes lubricated because we are side eyeing EVERYTHANG- from California and it's horrible history of the genocide of Indigenous People, to a certain celebrity who just keeps fucking up! But before we get to the korners James is super excited about A Star Is Born, and Nnekay joins in on the the questionable reason as to why we even need another Lion King, is this one even "live action"? The duo also talk about when to have tough conversations with people- James gives examples and Nnekay gives more examples as to why the many tiny mistreatment of black women in the medical field could lead to Black Maternal Mortality. Let's get to it!

We hope all of you are full off of the feast from the previous day! Now we have a FEAST for your earholes! Nnekay will be making Black Friday actually Black, by giving you guys some black owned businesses to do all your holiday shopping with! James has dusted off our friend the Quizlet Korner... this time it's all about the Bubonic Plague... of course there is a twist. But before that we get into what Shanice is up too, other than smiling and liking our smiles, notes about American Son staring Kerry Washington on Broadway, kick ass Viola Davis in Widows, and Marianne Williamson!

We kick things off with a giggle, in a burning search for where is Shanice? We may not have answers but we got questions! James has some info about 90's pop group Ace of Base... and we'll just say you'll never listen to them the same again. James sounds like a party girl but not for the reasons you think- he was off drinking the empowerment kool-aid at the Tony Robbins conference Unleash the Power Within. But what's up with all these Nazi's on the rise from high school to video games- how can we stop this madness? Does Jaden Smith have a boyfriend- and is he being a TERRIBLE boyfriend? One of the wonder twins' face can be seen on ads, and billboards around New York State- get covered ya'll! In the main event James takes a look at the life of visionary Stan Lee, who recently passed away, who was an advocate for civil rights and equality as shown through his diverse comic book characters, empowering folks of all different backgrounds, genders, sexualities, and beyond all around the world. Continuing on the celebration train, Nnekay is here to tell us about how dope Sam Esmail is in his diversity in casting in Homecoming with Julia Roberts on Amazon Prime and Mr. Robot. Phew! It's a whole lot of episode so get ready for the fun!

Halloween might be over, but is this a spook ass episode! But first! We're talking about James' new flirtation with fame! Stacey Abram and her monumental race in Georgia, her celeb supporters and how The View is helping her spread the news about voter suppression. We're also talking about how Kanye might be leaving politics behind... PHEW! In the Korners Nnekay is talking about Trump and his bullshit, this week it's his threat of removing Birthright Citizenship, the 14th Amendment plays into this, what can, and what can't happen. James breaks down the new spread of fascism in Brazil with the election of Jair Bolsonaro- who is blatantly sexist, homophobic, racist, and in favor of dictatorships... that's just the tip of the iceberg. Shutter... Don't forget to vote on the 6th, everyone!!!
