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 8: MKE09: So You Think You Can Podcast?! W/Guest Pearl Marill (Cecil The Lion, Bernie Sanders vs. #BlackLivesMatter, Mariah Carey, Black Women's Equal Pay Day, Black Queer Writers You Should Know, So You Think You Can Lap Dance)

Nnekay literally just got off a plane from the Philippines and is loosing her mind- she was in the future! Nnekay is also running for office and is very behind in the polls. It's Bernie Sanders vs. #Black Lives Matter, but Sanders has an ace up his sleeve to unite movements. James lost his groove, but Nnekay doesn't believe him...

episode 7: MK EP08: Back to the Future: Remember The Time (L.A., JEM, Mariah Carey, Real World/Road Rules, MTV, Music Videos, The Amazing Race)

Get your JNCO's on cause we're going back in time! But first some short term Nostalgia: Nnekay went to L.A. and she saw some "celebrities". Remember LFO? We kind of do.  Should Nnekay and James go on the Amazing Race? We're getting outrageous with JEM & The Holograms. Jem is the ultimate HBIC. Also, this is the true story how the real world has become a drunken frat house...

episode 6: MK E07: Chitty Shitty Gang Bang (Ant-Man, Michael Sam, Gay Black Superheroes, Femicidio, Miss USA, Rue from the Hunger Games, Kylie Jenner, Andy Cohen, Glasgow Pride, Sandra Bland)

There are two different movies called Girlhood, about young Black girls, and we're confused.  James has trouble pronouncing even more words and reveals his celebrity crush.  Buckle down because Femicidio is happening in both of our neighboring countries. But what does Miss USA and the treatment of Aboriginal women in Mexico have in common? (We're not sure they actually do, but some how they're in the same corner). One city has banned drag queens from a prideful celebration...

Nnekay isn't wearing any pants, or is she? We have so many updates this week, in chit chat corner. More nerd talk! DC is bringing an animated Black female superheroine to your TV! Nnekay's not wearing pants.  More things you apparently can't do while being Black. We have two stories that are practically transformers, where there's more than meets the eye... see what we did there...

The gloves are off as Nnekay and James come head to head over a glass (or two) of wine, and Nikola Tesla. But first let's hear about Nnekay's rendezvous with the great Dr. Cornel West.  And James played the part of gay uncle and took his nephew to ride roller coasters.  It's Comic Con, and we're going to get real nerdy on you. Have you seen the blog 'Every Single Word'? It's the Black Brechtel Test with even lower standards and needs- so come on Hollywood! Get with the program...

episode 3: MK E04: Stonewall, and Disney, and Bees! OH MY! (America Ferrera, Donald Trump, Disney, Michael Eisner, Stonewall the Movie, BBHMM, Grand Dragons are Fucking Crazy, Librarians and War)

It's the 4th of July SPECIAL EDITION. America Ferrera wrote a letter to Donald Trump. Nnekay ate some hot dogs on an island... of Alameda. A woman has a very unlucky day, pregnant, lost in the woods, surrounded be bees, and starts a fire. Stonewall the movie is coming to a multiplex near you, but it's all wrong, one word: erasure. The ex CEO of the House of Mouse (Disney) has lost his damn mind, and he did it in front of Goldie Hawn.  Librarians are off to war! The KKK is at it again...

Nnekay went to a fancy library conference. The pride parade happened, where were the LGBT folks? The BET awards were eventful. Crazy things are going down in the Dominican Republic, but why? Yay we have gay marriage, but this pride season lets examine the divide around the LGBTQIA community specifically around transphobia, biphobia, and race...
