James has quite the surprise to jump start the show, what celebrity is he now one degree of separation away from? Find out! But first: several tangents! In this fairy tale themed episode JamKay break down the TRUTH behind some of these fairy tales, what was really going on with this misunderstood, diabetic witch who lived in the woods before the entitled Hansel & Gretel showed up at her door? And don’t even get us started on that Goldilocks… too late! Nnekay is going to a fancy event at the MOMA in San Francisco, will she meet Solange? Perhaps with some Oprah like coaching from James and his visualization techniques, and some throwing of elbows from Nnekay- she just might have a chance! As teased from last week James delivers as we explore the history of the Pink Triangle, which takes us to Nazi Germany, and the treatment of homosexuals. Could this happen again? Is it? We also look at the power and influence of queer culture as evidenced in the documentary Paris is Burning. Nnekay has another listicle for you and this time it is even more specific, like a very fine tuned Netflix sub-sub-sub category: Books for Kids featuring Black Protagonists not about Slavery, Sports, or Civil Rights. YES! But this leads into a larger conversation of Black stories in media, from Empire, to Scandal. We have some fan mail to read, thoughts on the Live Action Lion King, and we will bring up Rachel Dolezal for the last time.
