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. Join James: a queer, political, comedian, self proclaimed, sexy blerd (that’s Black Nerd) and each week he's joined in the Korner by another fabulous minority tackling 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! (Part of the Maximum Fun Network)



episode 297: MK297: Upset & White (Vincent Chin, The Cheetah Girls, Murder of George Floyd Trial, Zenon, Violence & Racism Towards AAPI, Stacey Dash)

We continue our discussions and dives into the rise in violence towards the AAPI community- but first. Did Raven-Symoné see that both the third Zenon and Cheetah Girls movies were not going to be good- so she didn't return? Just who is Sheryl Sandberg? No seriously who is she? We find out. In the main korner James takes us through the history of the murder of Vincent Chin in the 80s and the movement it sprang, uniting the AAPI community, and the ripple effects it created. Racism, murder, civil rights, justice- all mirroring what's happening with the Murder of George Floyd Trial as we await with bated breath.
