The Wonder Twins are back- no more voicemail messages they are talking person to person! Missy Elliot may have been celebrated at the VMAs (a little too late) but Nnekay noticed a huge problem with her performance... a certain R&B princess was missing. Is James really friends with Beyonce & Jay-Z? Or was it a dream? Speaking of Jay-Z sure did step in it this week. Jay-Z Mr. Got Colin Kapernick's back on take a knee, seems to have flipped the script and aligned himself with the NFL. Is he shcukin' and jivin, or jumping into the arena? The twins discuss. James seems to have come back from Europe more able to see both sides to everything. Does Nnekay get her comedic writing from her dreams? In the main event Nnekay stops the rumor mill for Representative Illhan Omar. Nnekay breaks down her heroic story, truly representing the American Dream, and the work she's done, and what she's been up against. In a new segment called "James Asks a Question" he poses to our friendly neighborhood librarian his burning question over the last few weeks: Sex in the stacks? Fact or fiction based on the latest season of 'Dear White People'. Also please watch the Great Hack on Netflix if you haven't!

Ring, ring, ring leave another message at the Minority Korner Beep! The wonder twins are still separated by land, and sea and try to reach each other! First up James calls Nnekay and gives her all the snaps on her voicemail korner of last week. Also the VMA's happened, and James is feeling old and out of the loop. D23 Happened and James has some hot exciting takes on what else Marvel/Disney+ will be rolling out to take all of our money and eyeball time. One of the Koch brothers died and James is conflicted on how to respond. James also shares some Bossip with Nnekay around Queer Eye/Real World's Karamo Brown who stepped in it this week. Also the Glow Up did a great deep dive into why we still have unequal pay for women of color. Nnekay hops on the horn and tries to give James a call who's still over in Europe. She has to tell him all about how the Amazon is burning, and what we can do to help! All this and more on PT2 of Minority Korner Voicemail Conversations!
