How did you spend Janet Appreciation Day (AKA Super Bowl LII)? We took a knee in support of Colin Kaepernick, and protesting Justin Timberlake's (Mr. King of Appropriation) performance after his participation of 'nipplegate' back in 2014, aiding in Ms. Jackson's dethroning, and riding his wave of white male privilege unscathed to the land of further success. Scandal seems to be showing some Janet love this week in it’s hot mess of a final season. Are you watching James’ “Auntie’s” (Angela Bassett's) show 9-1-1? Nnekay has a huge correction for the Today Show, and their unveiling facts about Queen Nefertiti, and who she really was. Note: she did not look like Gladys the soccer mom. Also King Tut was probably a bubble boy. Inspired by Justin Timberlake’s Super Bowl performance, James takes us on a magical journey through time exploring a timeline of white folks appropriating Black music, why this has been occurring for over a century, and American music’s roots in African culture. Nnekay continues her discussion from last week exploring Black comic characters you should know! Hold onto your butts as we continue our celebration of Black culture!

James is in the building, and it's a Minority Korner Thanksgiving: leftovers edition! Nnekay is a master crotcheter and all James sees is a potential business (you know his inner Dina Lohan), and the conversation moves onto passing on traditions. Speaking of let's talk about Black Thanksgiving: how/why do POC's celebrate this colonial holiday rooted in the slaughtering of First Nations People? What does it mean to us? And there's an 'aha' moment about spending Thanksgiving with your tribe. James has an unchecked idea of how Thanksgiving became a holiday.  In the Korners Nnekay has a listicle (it's the end of the year and people LOVE lists) about Black Sci Fi you should be dialing into, from comics, to fiction, graphic novels, and web series, there is a lot of dope stuff happening! Time to queer up your Thanksgiving with a Quizlet! And James has tips for all our LGBT tribe on how to survive your family for Thanksgiving. Plus spending time with your family as they get older, surprising your dad for his 60th, and all hail Queen Janet! She is on tour and James has the inside scoop on how to score great seats for pop legends the day of! Ticketmaster... we're on to you! Gobble, gobble, and get stuffed with this Thanksgiving leftovers episode of Minority Korner!

Hola! We are coming to you from around the globe, as James is in Espana and being unapologetically Black overseas, while spreading the gospel about racism in America like a Paul Revere. James is also working like a bastard, why do they work so hard, training for the Avengers 10K, accidentally joining separatist protests, and making a crazy film that may bring in the Spanish new wave of film making. Meanwhile back in the states, Nnekay has fallen in love with a new dog, and her bitch Zelda might not be having it. Also, maybe British Black actors leading American biopics might not be such a bad idea in terms of overseas appeal, aka John Boyega in Detroit, has found a home in Espana. Then we go to the main event: Writer/Comedian (not Comedienne) Janine Brito! We discuss the haunted Poconos Manner, getting lost in the forest, what to do when your family voted for Trump, why you should turn off Reality TV and do something, what's it like to be a lesbian comedian in LA, and create an idea for embroidered pillows on the go! Also someone please call James' mother, and tell her that he is safe in Europe. All this and more!
