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 319: MK319 The Medium is The Message (Emmy’s so White, DWTS, Mendez v. Westminster, Y The Last Man, Fashion & Style Tips for Personal Empowerment)

We are getting in style with Robin Allen Style- taking it back to her glory days of the T Zone with Tyra. Speaking of Tyra have you seen her hosting Dancing With The Stars which is pushing boundaries with their first same sex dancing duo?!  We unpack The Emmy’s in an era of amazing diverse television, and nominees the winners seem to be lacking in melanin. Y The Last Man is giving us some post apocalyptic realness sans those with a Y chromosome. Is Nicki Minaj spouting all this not getting vaxxed impotent talk to distract us from her legal troubles!? 7 Years before Brown v. Board of education their was Mendez vs. Westminster breaking down segregation in California schools for Latinx children. And our personal stylist guru takes us through a deeper dive into the AOC’s Met gala ensemble and how what we wear can help empower us to be the amazing people we are on the inside, reflected on the out.
