The twins also discuss the difference between nonviolent and violent protest inspired by the events of South Africa in reaction to H&M's racist ad. Rachel Dolezal decides to take advantage this opportunity by making poor choices and bad decisions once again. We kick off this episode with James' Korner- the return of our good friend Mz. Quizlette and this time she is look at you, Dr. King! James breaks down some facts that you might not have known about the legendary civil rights hero. Continuing the thread of activism, Nnekay takes us through a list of various Asian American activist who deserve a spotlight shined on them for their accomplishments in civil rights, labor right, anti-racism, and anti war efforts.

Today we are all about the FACT-FACTS and not the Alternative facts that seems to be dominating all the media outlets these days. It is Spring Break and is Nnekay having the time of her life orjust crying at the blind auditions on The Voice? James has some questions for Nnekay: What is the origin of the term 'Becky" and what exactly is the Women's Boycott or rather #daywithoutawoman? Nnekay tried to explain the best she can. Both are APPALLED by the nonsense that has spewed from Ben Carson's dumb mouth. James wants to give him a pamphlet to educate him on slavery, meanwhile, Nnekay just wants him to float away to Island of AWAY. In James' korner, he tackles the truth about Gay Loneliness. He covers the article in the Huffington Post, the rebuttal, the truth to both sides and what falls in the middle. Nnekay's korner covers Immigration Raids currently being conducted by the ICE. She covers how we got to this point, some key facts, and what we can do to protect ourselves and our loved ones. Remember ya'll The Max Fun Drive is coming up, and we hope you enjoy this episode!
