How did you spend Janet Appreciation Day (AKA Super Bowl LII)? We took a knee in support of Colin Kaepernick, and protesting Justin Timberlake's (Mr. King of Appropriation) performance after his participation of 'nipplegate' back in 2014, aiding in Ms. Jackson's dethroning, and riding his wave of white male privilege unscathed to the land of further success. Scandal seems to be showing some Janet love this week in it’s hot mess of a final season. Are you watching James’ “Auntie’s” (Angela Bassett's) show 9-1-1? Nnekay has a huge correction for the Today Show, and their unveiling facts about Queen Nefertiti, and who she really was. Note: she did not look like Gladys the soccer mom. Also King Tut was probably a bubble boy. Inspired by Justin Timberlake’s Super Bowl performance, James takes us on a magical journey through time exploring a timeline of white folks appropriating Black music, why this has been occurring for over a century, and American music’s roots in African culture. Nnekay continues her discussion from last week exploring Black comic characters you should know! Hold onto your butts as we continue our celebration of Black culture!
