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)




episode 133: Skip That Track, Imma Go Apeshit! (Romans 13, Jeff Sessions, California Banning Black People, The Carters, Janelle Monae, Kathy Griffin)

James is BACK in the BAY! But sadly the duo aren't in the same room, yet- but that's coming! James had his West Coast debut as a comedian at a cat themed stand up show. The wonder twins talk art history and the majesty of Beyonce and Jay-Z aka The Carters and their new album and the visual richness of the video for Apeshit. Nnekay went to Janelle Monae and has lost all of her damn edges due to the sheer amazingness black female empowerment. The night before James went to Kathy Griffin at the same venue!!! He talks abut her fight against the Trump Administration. In the Korners, Nnekay talks about Romans 13 the bible verse that has been use to give legitimacy to many horrific events in world history- including most recently Jeff Sessions' use of it to plead the case for separating undocumented families. James talks about California's dirty past of trying but (thankfully) failing to ban black people from living in the state.    Links!   https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2018/06/how-you-can-fight-family-separation-at-the-border.html   https://biblia.com/bible/niv/Rom%2013   http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1177/014610799002000405?journalCode=btba   https://books.google.com/books?id=R3QNBQAAQBAJ&dq=%22misreading+of+romans+13%22+gushee&source=gbs_navlinks_s   https://www.theroot.com/a-brief-history-of-people-using-romans-13-to-justify-wh-1826875704   https://www.bustle.com/p/what-is-romans-13-about-jeff-sessions-cited-the-bible-verse-to-defend-family-separation-9423488   https://slate.com/human-interest/2018/06/jeff-sessions-chose-romans-13-to-defend-trumps-immigration-policy-and-heres-why-hes-wrong.html   https://www.colorlines.com/articles/jefferson-beauregard-sessions-cites-bible-justify-cruel-border-policy   https://www.colorlines.com/articles/trump-administration-mulls-tent-cities-house-unaccompanied-migrant-children Minority Korner Store: https://teespring.com/minority-korner-t-shirt#pid=369&cid=6513&sid=front Twitter: @minoritykorner
