    With the recent violent attacks towards the AAPI Community most notably the tragedy in Atlanta where 8 were killed fueled by racism, and sexism, there seems to be a disconnect for some that this was in fact a hate crime- and that’s because folks don’t know their history. So in preparation for the next two weeks of guests and conversations we thought it'd be good to go back into the archives to resurface two past Korners from over 200 episodes ago! First up James continues he discussion on immigration this time focusing on the history of overseas from Asia, exploring the Chinese Exclusion act of 1882, and how it spawned more racists laws to uphold white supremacy, and where the myth of the Model Minority comes from. Then in honor of Women’s History it’s Nnekay’s Korner on Cheng I Sao, the bad ass Chinese Pirate who in the 1800s lead a fleet larger than the Chinese Navy and was one of the most successful pirates ever to exist.REFERENCE LINKS: http://www.npr.org/sections/codeswitch/2017/04/19/524571669/model-minority-myth-again-used-as-a-racial-wedge-between-asians-and-blackshttp://americanhistory.oxfordre.com/view/10.1093/acrefore/9780199329175.001.0001/acrefore-9780199329175-e-72#acrefore-9780199329175-e-72-note-5https://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/616/i-am-not-a-pirate?act=2How to Help Asian American Community: Donations, Resources, Education, and More:https://www.playbill.com/article/stop-aapi-hate-a-resource-guide-to-support-the-asian-american-communityhttps://www.marieclaire.com/politics/a35866266/how-to-support-asian-american-community-organizations/https://www.cnet.com/how-to/how-to-help-the-asian-american-community-donations-educational-resources-and-more/Minority Korner on YouTube:  https://bit.ly/2JsXEuuCONTACT USTwitter: @minoritykornerEmail: minoritykorner@gmail.comIG: @minoritykornerJames Arthur M (he/him): TW: @JamesArthur_M, IG: @JamesArthurM Nnekay FitzClarke (she/her):TW: @mizzfitzie, IG: @nnekay

    Today we are a party with a purpose, it’s been a long time but comedic legend in the making and duchess of the podcasts Glory Mora makes her return. Speaking of royalty we unpack the tell all interview between our BAP Megan Markle and Queen Oprah herself, along with Megan's DAWM Harry ( don’t worry these acronyms will eventually make sense). Celebrating women’s history we celebrate the legacy of the High Priestess of Soul Nina Simone, her journey, her struggles, her legacy. And Glory pushes us down the Reggeaton rabbit hole uncovering it’s history and helps James understand what a Bad Bunny is and why I should care. But first the reviews are in for Coming 2 America and they are mixed even on this podcast. Also remember Kid N Play? James did a movie marathon so you don’t have to and reveals their origin story, and his theory of what happened to their career.REFERENCE LINKS: Nina Simonehttps://www.rollingstone.com/movies/movie-news/10-things-we-learned-from-new-nina-simone-doc-59571/https://www.britannica.com/biography/Nina-Simonehttps://www.theguardian.com/music/musicblog/2016/mar/02/nina-simone-10-of-the-besthttps://www.ninasimone.com/biography/Minority Korner on YouTube:  https://bit.ly/2JsXEuuCONTACT USTwitter: @minoritykornerEmail: minoritykorner@gmail.comIG: @minoritykornerJames Arthur M: TW: @JamesArthur_M, IG: @JamesArthurMGlory Mora: TW: @prettyfunnyglo, IG: @glorelysmora
