Insecure

Insecure

Issa Rae is the millennial whisperer, she’s able to articulate the struggles that we go through beautifully. If you haven't watched “Insecure” then you’re missing out. Minorities finally can see themselves projected in a positive light. Too many times we see negative portrayals of our races. This show doesn’t make a caricature of Blacks, Latinos or Asians.

Insecure is in its fourth season, which has set twitter a blaze for a myriad of reasons. It’s tackling pivotal moments that you go through in life. So, people are really connecting with season and I can fully understand why.

Plus Size Baddies

Lizzo has an electrifying year, to say the least. It’s always been stated that you’re not popping unless you have haters. The hate that has been thrown against this woman is unfathomable. I don’t want to pull the race card but it’s clear on why she receives the disrespect. Adele was a plus-sized diva and she was never disrespected like this.
