In Patti La Belle fashion we are late for Christmas, and so was Mos Def according to Nnekay when she went to his concert. James is back to auditioning in the New York scene and Nnekay is already demanding tickets for... Magic Mike Live! AKA James' sexy free dance class. We discuss how many 'K's' are appropriate, 2 K's are ok, 4, but not 3. Remember Sisqo? Thong Song? Let's discuss! To engage or not to engage with racist, homophoboes, and sexist? Minority Korner Kids have asked the question! It's the holidays, and folks are depressed, especially after this year. James has been watching his favorite movie genre: Lady Suspense Thrillers (mostly Halle Berry films) and is going to use it as a vehicle to talk about depression within the LGBT community (go with us here) followed by a gift of 5 Golden Things: action items for LGBT & other Korner Folks to take into the New Year. So many folks have been on the "2016 Has Been Terrible Bandwagon" but there is much to celebrate, as Nnekay has a list of 21 Black Voices that we are thankful for. From Solange, to Bae for the day Jesse Williams, Issa Rea of Awkward, Ava DuVurnay, John Legend and more! We are closing out this year with bang, and some great momentum into the new year as we reframe it, and own our own power! Plus we workshop our Quantico/Kwanzaa special where we are sure to, FINALLY, win our Golden Globe!

Happy Pride ya'll! James is confronted with a lot of ugly truths in this episode as Nnekay is dropping earth shattering truth bombs. Is Nnekay going to be an upcoming Actress? We dive into Pride and celebrate and discuss brilliant dream boat Jesse Williams' acceptance speech. James is going to give you a run down of the state of guns in Amurrica, historical shooting massacres, how we look in comparison to other countries, and why guns are so tough to beat in this country. Nnekay is giving us a comic book news roundup of some new series that are uplifting marginalized groups... and some that are not... and will get Nnekay's harsh side eye!
