We're back, and this season we're coming at you from coast to coast. James is finally back from Europe now in New York, and Nnekay is still holding it down in the Bay Area. James survived his first Blizzard. And if you that the Blizzard was white- did you see the Oscar nominations. We're going over the timeline of all the craziness over #OscarsSoWhite, and everyone's got something to say from Jadah Pinket, to Sarah Palin, to self hating troll Stacy Dash. There's talks of a boycott brewing. There's a new young little Black girl taking on America's lack of diversity in children books. Plus your favorite corners are back: Quizlet Korner AND History Korner. This week in Quizlet corner James tests Nnekay's knowledge of what he may or may have not done on his European Journey AND a bonus quiz about our favorite whacky Alaskan Sarah Palin. And History Korner has Nnekay sweatin'. Plus we practice our accents. Welcome back to the Minority Korner!
