“Hi. I’m *insert name here*. And I’m awkward.”
There are always those girls who are graceful, well-spoken, and know how to properly react to any given situation…
…Then you have the awkward black girl, who freezes up and stutters when randomly spoken to & whose thoughts on everyday life would have people running for the hills.
There are more of us than you think. There’s even a super-awesome show dedicated to the awkward moments that women go through on a daily basis. Meet Issa Rae, creator of Awkward Black Girl, a Youtube show starring J (the main character played by Rae) and her coworker’s as they go through hilarious trials and tribulations living out in Cali. From having someone catch you while in full Yonce-performance mode to not knowing how to get your crush’s attention, J has been there; failed that. There are dozens of moments when you’ll watch the show and go “OMG, that is so me”- you know, if you’re awkward of course. And it’s okay, girl- we’ve gone through it too. So can you relate to J and her crazy, awkward antics? Let’s find out.
