Episode notes

The Queen of Minority Korner is back! Nnekay Fitzclarke is here! This week James and Nnekay had Black Brunch or Black Meal depending on your preference. James loves a cult and a con but found a newly discovered passion as he watched An American Crime Story: Impeachment, A SCANDAL. We discuss how to not Linda Tripp ourselves and we will NOT be apologizing for any jokes made about her because well she was wildin! Then Florida has passed the newly named “Don’t Say Gay” bill and we discuss the harmful effects and precedence this sets for the country and why these bills are dangerous. In the main Korner we continue Women’s History Month and talk about the unsung women of color heroes of the suffragette movement that you may not have heard about.
