Actress Issa Rae is coming under FIRE - for something that she said in her book. Many believe Issa put ANTI Black male propaganda in the book.
In the book 2015 The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl - the passage was widely missed by the media. On page 138 of the book Issa wrote:
This is why I propose that Black women and Asian men join forces in love, mariage, and procreation. Educated Black women what better intellectual match for you than an Asian man?
And I'm not talking about Filipino's, they're like the Blacks of Asians.
As you can imagine, there has already been a number of people on social media BLASTING Issa for her OUTRAGEOUS remarks.
So far Issa's camp has not come out to either EXPLAIN, or APOLOGIZE for making the statement.
Here is the chapter from the book:
In other Issa news, reports over the weekend said that everyone's favorite dude from Insecure, Laurence might not be returning for the third season.
BET reports that, "As fans' emotions seemed to level out weeks after season two concluded, they were flared up once more after the show's star and creator, Issa Rae, posted a picture a month ago, revealing that production has begun for the follow-up. However, there may be a possibility that Jay Ellis, who portrays Lawrence on the show, may not be returning for the new round of fun."
The report continued to say that:
In a recent interview on The Angie Martinez Show, while sharing details on his role in the series, Ellis mentioned that he's been a bit "out of the loop" regarding season three's plot and filming schedule.
"I'm a little bit out of it," he said. "I'm not really... They've been filming for the last six or seven weeks or something like that."
Him pointing out that he has not filmed a single scene for the upcoming season may send the #LawrenceHive into a frenzy as his professional exit from the show may not be so far-fetched as Lawrence and Issa said goodbye to one another during the finale of season two.
