I was going to write up a post about Awkward Black Girl but I found this post that did a better job then I would have so hear you go! Check out her site too…its pretty interesting!
The Mis-Adventures of Awkward Black Girl is a popular web series that began on Youtube. Issae Rae, the main character, creator, and writer of The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl, is hilarious. She calls attention to the group of women that are often disregarded. Most often black women are stereotyped as sassy, neck-rolling, ghettofied creatures that have no resemblance to me nor my friends.
This web series breaks that. It is about the life of “J”, an awkward black girl. She’s stuck in a dead-end job in California, writes angry rap lyrics when she’s upset, and just shaved her head. Throughout the series she goes through the troubles of finding friends, dealing with her nemesis, “Nina”, her boss, “Boss Lady”, and juggling her attraction to “White Jay” and Fred, a new coworker introduced at the beginning of the series.
