Fires, earthquakes, and droughts- California is out of control! Never forget the major earthquake of 2015, and we survived! Are Renaissance fairs for Black people? Alfre Woodard in all her amazingness is joining the Marvel Universe, but Nnekay is not happy with her characters name.  James is also making a list and checking it twice (a make out list).  Nnekay watched the Backstreet Boys documentary. Nnekay investigates Black Queens and gives them praise, and is about to start a major feud and beef with Queen herself Aretha Franklin. James dives into 'Straight Out of Compton' looking at the true true story of this true story, and a behind the scenes look at the casting of women for the movie. What's Campaign Zero? We're here to tell you, and it's awesome! Plus the Industrial Prison Complex is getting in the hot seat for the Quizlet Corner, and you'll never guess which athlete superstar is being put in the corner, because he sucks as a human being.
