Another day another racist comment from The Occupant in the White House. This time he's targeting four amazing Congresswomen. When are the Republicans going to step up?! Does J.Lo know that Africa is a continent? There is an update about the Maternal Mortality Crisis with the app Mahmee. Also a Black Lady 007?! What nonsense is ScarJo spewing now about all the roles she should be able to play? Nnekay is giving you some names of awesome diverse cartoons that feature LGBTQ and POC kids as their leads. James has a Quizlette for you that features: Punisher, Alan Turning, PETA and more!

James went to a party and some said some rancid stuff that might include a taboo word during Taboo. We're also talking about the new Little Mermaid with excitement. Also Bette Midler needs to learn how to read a room especially at World Pride. James is tackling how we can do our part to help close the detention centers, actually let's call them what they really are: concentration camps. Nnekay is talking about how anthropology needs to be reexamined because it is alllll mixed up with racism and bias.
