Minority Korner

Is being wished a Happy MLKJr. Day Celebration weird? Nnekay wonders if she was being singled out. The twins discuss. After that, Nnekay and James unpack the wild ridiculousness of the fiasco of H&M and their gross advertisement. Nnekay breaks down the terrible history of black people being compared to monkeys. James demands for more diversity in company- which could have prevented this. 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.

Minority Korner

James and Nnekay are hot and bothered about Britney's new album, Glory- She is also BACK with her performance at the VMA... which G-Money (whoever that is) tried to lay a big ole smooch on her face. Not to mention she had to go after BEYONCE who SHUT IT DOWN... but was it better than her concert? Colin Kaepernick of the 49ers is facing an unusual amount of grief by flexing his freedom of speech. Cause Nnekay and James to wonder... maybe it's time to pick or creaaaaaate a new national anthem.

Nnekay's topic for the day is the largest anti-war protest held by American Minorities: the Chicano Moratorium- which protested the Vietnam war as well as the ridiculously large amount of Mexican American soldier death. James is talking about the Church and it's priest who are spreading hate against the LGBT community and are closeted themselves. As well as illegally spending the money of church goers for their own gain.

Some things included in Quizlet Korner this week are: Dildos, Olympics, and Bath Houses... Think Nnekay can get at least one right this time?
