We're back! In more ways than one. Nnekay and James are physically back in the same time zone, same space, and same park, that's right we're back in Dolores Park, will things get as crazy as last time? Nnekay explains the history of pigeons, and James tells his tales of cheep peep shows, and sexy fairs. In the issues korner Nnekay sheds light on other movements outside of #BlackLivesMatter, that's right there's other movements effecting change. James has a DNC news roundup! This year at the DNC we had a lot of 'firsts' as movements are having effects on our electorate and party system in more ways than you think. Also James calls out Bernie or Bust, which is big, because as you recall Minority Korner feels the burn! Quizlet Korner has a whole new set of rules as we talk about Matt Damon is everyone's savior, male body dysmorphia, and poisonous vagina. All on this weeks episode of Minority Korner!

It's our tribute to Larry Bird episode! Just kidding! But hold on to your butts as we dish on random subjects from 'Crazy Ex Girlfriend' to the debate around the new out Star Trek character. Should you be watching 'Stranger Things'? YES! Nnekay takes sides on the feud that most didn't even know existed between Charlize Theron and one of the Sister Sister... sisters. James jumps into the perplexing nature of the RNC especially when it comes to the gays there both in and out of the Log Cabin closet. And what's Third Eye Blind doing there? In a more positive corner Nnekay is shinning some light on a community doing some good for others in Berkeley, as it lives up to it's name 'The City of Refuge'. Are Ghostbuster toys selling? Are Muslims being targeted for discrimination on planes? Are Latinos para Trump? Does that even make any sense? Find out in this weeks Quizlet Korner.

We are not reporting from the RNC- because that would be dangerous for us. We are still internationally recording, and James has a bird's eye view of all the crazy Republican politics, safely from Europe. Let's talk about the terrifying circus that is the Republican National Convention. Nnekay speaks about a hashtag near and dear to her heart #LoudBlackGirls, and it's celebration, and empowerment of Black women to be themselves. James is going to myth bust some gender and race stereotypes, and we need to have a very important conversation about white on white crime. This week's Quizlet Korner might actually be legit. Did Stevie Wonder go crazy at a concert? Is Grand Theft Auto taking place at a Pride Parade? Are Homosexuals lacing fireworks with chemtrails to turn everyone gay?! Find out!

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 and James are SO excited to be apart of the Maximum Fun Network, the support has been amazing! James talks about the amazing Broadway Play, Color Purple... which is NOT featuring Jennifer Hudson anymore. Which is too bad because James has another one of his famous impressions! James breaks DOWN the play and how everyone should check it out.

Nnekay takes us to the Protect Yourself/Protect Other People Korner! First, she breaks down what to do when an active shooter is present, with information from Homeland Security. The Protect Other People part covers how straight Allies can support the LGBT community.

James takes us through an Orlando News Round Up Korner. He tells us stories of survivals, victims, the police officers who came to help, and some of the potential legislation. He also explains how even he has a connection to some of the victims. How this tragedy hits so terribly close to home. Also, James breaks down how the rest of the world has shown solidarity... including a very surprising celebrity.

We got another Quizlet Korner! Will James stump Nnekay?!?!?!

So enjoy! Share, and spread the word!

James is back from his epic journey to Niagara Falls and Fire Island, Nnekay is... well stuck in her car again, this time she's a little less hot... and not alone. We also take a moment to gather our thoughts in the horror of Orlando. We'll be diving in deep on the topic in future episodes. For now enjoy our previously recorded episode on Political Correctness, what white people can do to stop promoting subtle racism (which can be applied to straight allies and homophobia during this current time) and a follow up on the Kids For Cash scandal.
