Minority Korner

Are you easily confused by terms like cultural appropriation, cisgender, toxic masculinity, twunk, black girl magic, and woke? Or maybe you’re tired of explaining terms like these and you need a community that gets you! Sounds like you need MINORITY KORNER! Nnekay & James dish out your weekly serving of pop culture, social commentary, nerdy stuff, politics, empowerment, celebrity feuds, zanny anecdotes, mispronunciation of most names, and things they left out of the history books, all from a perspective that’s Black, queer, and lady like! So come learn, laugh, and play! (Part of the Maximum Fun Network)

MK EP 02: Electric Boogaloo, Back in the Habit! (Charleston Massacre, the Confederate Flag, Madonna, Big Brother 17, Juneteenth, the GOP, Janet Jackson Interludes, and James' Bday!)


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.  ARTICLES FOR REFERENCE Remembering the Victims of Charleston: http://www.buzzfeed.com/jessicasimeone/these-are-the-victims-of-the-charleston-church-shooting#.nqxX3GbJw4 White Fragility: http://goodmenproject.com/featured-content/white-fragility-why-its-so-hard-to-talk-to-white-people-about-racism-twlm/ Hillary Clinton Calling for 'common sense' gun laws: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/06/20/hillary-clinton-charleston-shooting-guns_n_7627930.html?ir=Black+Voices&ncid=fcbklnkushpmg00000047 Sign the petition to help bring the Conferdate flag down in South Carolina: http://petitions.moveon.org/sign/remove-the-confederate-3?source=s.fb&r_by=10838012 11 Ways White America Avoids Taking Responosibility for It's Racism: http://www.alternet.org/news-amp-politics/11-ways-white-america-avoids-taking-responsibility-its-racism Gun sales rise in America since 2009 hmmmm: http://finance.yahoo.com/news/smith-wesson-nails-obama-did-115655106.html Allies the tiem for scilence has expired: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/rev-denise-anderson/charleston-shooting-allies_b_7616708.html The Confederate Flag is More Racists than you think: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/06/22/confederate-flag-racist_n_7639788.html?utm_hp_ref=black-voices THE GOP REACTS TO CHARLESTON...
