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)

Happy Black History Month! But every month is Black History Month at Minority Korner, and some of you might be asking: why isn't there a Black History Month? Well, Nnekay has your answer… and it's short. Did you see the Beyonce & Coldplay music video? Is Coldplay at it again in their cultural "appreciation"/appropriation? #TweetLikeAWhiteGay has set the internet ablaze! Plus there are plenty of things you use that you probably had no idea that it was invented by a Black person...

We're back, and this season we're coming at you from coast to coast. James is finally back from Europe now in New York, and Nnekay is still holding it down in the Bay Area. James survived his first Blizzard. And if you that the Blizzard was white- did you see the Oscar nominations. We're going over the timeline of all the craziness over #OscarsSoWhite, and everyone's got something to say from Jadah Pinket, to Sarah Palin, to self hating troll Stacy Dash. There's talks of a boycott brewing...

We are feeling easy, breezy, and beautiful this week. We further deconstruct Bitch Betta Have My Money. James went to a bourgeois club doctor. We take a trip to Shondaland! Nnekay wound up in the Bermuda triangle of San Francisco. Apparently political correctness is running rampant amongst our American Universities and reeking havoc on millennial ability to critically think.....

It's the teenage dream episode, as Minority Korner is now a teen... in epsidoes and it's awkward! We share our teen secrets in a new segment for our teen episodes called "Teen Secret Corner". But first in adult land, James is a high profile choreographer for a local tech commerical, and even here (on the lower end of the) casting table there is some weird racial things happening. The reviews are in, Nnekay has seen 'Temple of Poon'. Adventrues with Nnekay at Michaels in the DIY section...

Empire! Did you watch that crazy show- we're both caught up, and it's time to talk about Cookie! James is writing a book on the art of getting that special someone to fall in love with you... or just sleep with you, and it all involves one single word. The VMA's happened, we don't want to talk about it, but how can we not, with the surprising presidential announcement. Taylor Swift has given Nnekay more reason to call her basic...

Alfre Woodard in all her amazingness is joining the Marvel Universe, but Nnekay is not happy with her characters name.  James is also making a list and checking it twice (a make out list).  Nnekay watched the Backstreet Boys documentary...

Target is going gender neutral with it's toys and bedding, and it's a sign of the Apocolaypse because people are FREAKING OUT! Good trolls! How to fuck up your kid the least...
