Lauren Carter is here with Breaking News from Twitter… about Adele. Britney is free (#FreedBritney) and we couldn’t be happier but Jessica Simpson might need to read the room, with her announcement of her also being free. Drake and Travis Scott owe us answers as we discuss the tragedy that happened at Astroworld. Then we discuss Passing starring Tessa Thomosn and Ruth Negga an important movie that needs its roses! It’s Christmas, which means Mariah Carey is resurrected this time of year and our Queen of Christmas has a new partnership we didn’t know we needed. And then in the main korner with Thanksgiving here, which is often an uncomfortable time knowing the genocide of Indegenous folks, James attended a Native American/Indegenous Heritage talk and is downloading the insights to you, with ideas of how to appropriately partake in the holiday while giving true thanks, and respect to who’s land this truly is.

About the show
Are you easily confused by terms like cultural appropriation, cisgender, toxic masculinity, twunk, queer, black girl magic, and woke? Or maybe you’re tired of explaining terms like these and you need a community that gets you! Welcome to Minority Korner, where we take an introspective look at the world. through an intersectional lens. Join James: a queer, political, comedian, self proclaimed, sexy blerd (that’s Black Nerd) and each week he’s joined in the Korner by another fabulous minority tackling pop culture, the news, media, and history all with a little self care, and self love sprinkled throughout! It’s time to Learn, Laugh, and Play, right here at Minority Korner- because together: we’re the majority!
