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 300: 300th Episode LIVE From OasisTV! (Pauli Murray, Falcon & Winter Soldier, Racism in Crafts, George Floyd, Ma'Khia Bryant, Don Lemon, Quizlet Korner, Caitlyn Jenner for Gov?)


It's our 300th episode LIVE streamed from Oasis TV! Nnekay is back to celebrate this moment, we reminisce about the genesis of this podcast 6 years ago on the heels of Michael Brown, and with the verdict of the murder of George Floyd, how much has changed? Don Lemon had a questionable response to the killing of 16 year old Ma'Khia Bryant, and we hear Nnekay's thoughts as a new mother. We dish on the blackest thing Marvel has ever done, no not Black Panther: Falcon + Winter Soldier.  In the first Korner James walks us through the remarkable trailblazer who's shoulders we all stand on Pauli Murray, intersectional royalty, who you probably never heard of, but we all owe a lot. Then the Queen of Craft Nnekay walks us through the racism happening in the craft world because, yes, racism is everywhere! And it’s back! Quizlet Korner!
