You're still here! You're back for episode dos! It's been a crazy week in America, and Nnekay and James dive in on this very special episode of Minority Korner.  Hear those 'P's pop' as we still battle sound issues. We talk about Charleston, the Confedrate flag, and GOP responses and reactions. A call to action for white people to join the fight for equality! Did you see that new Madonna video? Let's discuss! Janet Jackson is on her way back, and we hope with even more ridiculous interludes. And what's going on in the Big Brother house this year? All told, debated, and analyzed from the perspective of these two minorities. Plus it's James' birthday, bye bye 20's, and Nnekay sips some wine... loudly.
