NOTE: We do talk about sexual assault, sexual violence, along with lynchings and forms of torture to Black bodies. If any of these things are upsetting to you- please take care as you listen.
It’s time to kick off Black History Month! But first up we address the interview of our fallen hero Joss Whedon who did not do himself any favors doing a full interview with The Cut, and yes, he is the true monster. Where’s Buffy? Speaking of childhood ruining monsters, we have to talk about the new documentary about Bill Cosby. Then in the main korner James takes a deep dive into Lynchings, an unfortunate, American past time. The startling history, numbers, participation by white America and the unwillingness for the government to do anything. It’s that time of year to not only celebrate Black culture, but look at the hard truths about this country and its history.

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!
