Minority Korner

Are you easily confused by terms like cultural appropriation, cisgender, toxic masculinity, twunk, queer, black girl magic, and woke? Or maybe you’re tired of explaining terms like these and you need a community that gets you! Welcome to Minority Korner, where we take an introspective look at the world. through an intersectional lens. I’m James: a queer, political, comedian, self proclaimed, sexy blerd (that’s Black Nerd) and each week I’m joined in the korner by another fabulous minority where we tackle pop culture, the news, media, and history all with a little self care, and self love sprinkled throughout! It’s time to Learn, Laugh, and Play, right here at Minority Korner- because together: we’re the majority!




episode 187: The Aloha Experience (Close the Camps, Racist Anthropology, Drop Dead Gorgeous)

James is tackling how we can do our part to help close the detention centers, actually let's call them what they really are: concentration camps. Nnekay is talking about how anthropology needs to be reexamined because it is alllll mixed up with racism and bias.    Links: https://daily.jstor.org/anthropologists-hid-african-same-sex-relationships/ https://www.google.com/amp/s/timeline.com/amp/p/7a45289071cf https://undark.org/article/nubia-sudan-amara-west-archaeology/   What You Can You Do to Close the Camps- from Yopp Voice https://bit.ly/2G8Q1V1  (Bookmark & Share)
