12 Issa Rae Quotes about People

” People are tired of mainstream media’s limited and confined portrayal of people of color. “


” People are willing to support and watch web series as a legitimate form of entertainment. “


” You know, you have a lot of people – I’ve met a lot of people in the past, I’ve gone to private schools, you know, encountered different people who think that it’s OK to make comments, insensitive comments about your race because they’re joking. And think that if they’re joking and they say it, you know, good-naturedly, that things will fly. “


” There’s so many, ‘no, black people aren’t like that’ barriers in mainstream media. “


” I don’t think the mainstream media understands people of color are multidimensional. For some reason, there’s an idea that only white people are relatable. I don’t think it’s necessarily racist. But it’s odd, because the people who watch the most television are black women, so we should be represented in more ways. “


” I would love ‘Awkward Black Girl’ to be on television, with the right team of people who understand and get it. If ‘Awkward Black Girl’ could make it to HBO starring a dark-skinned black girl, that would be revolutionary. “


” Mainstream media has convinced people that black people aren’t relatable. So when a Jewish person comes up to me and is all, ‘Oh man, I love that one scene from Episode 3, I watch it over and over again,’ I’m so happy. Because that’s what I want. “


” Every black film feels like it’s Tyler Perry, and that just needs to stop. But people seem to slowly be looking for what else is out there – ‘Is there something else besides this type of humor?’ ‘I’m tired of seeing men in dresses. “


” I don’t like to be overexposed. Too many articles, too many tweets, too many posts, I just don’t like that. But at the same time, we live in a culture where that’s almost necessary. People want content and they want their stuff when they want it. “


” Black and awkward is the worst, because black people are stereotyped as being anything but awkward in mainstream media… Black people are always portrayed to be cool or overly dramatic, anything but awkward. “


” I used to love being the class clown. I loved to make jokes and make people laugh. There was a set of students who would find it funny. But the cool students were like, ‘Eeew!’ “


” It’s one thing when other African-Americans try to threaten my race card, but when people outside of my ethnicity have the audacity to question how ‘down’ I am because of the bleak, stereotypical picture pop culture has painted for me as a black woman? Unacceptable. “
