Recently, Issa Rae did an interview with Glamour and she went into detail about why having a predominately white staff would not benefit her HBO series “Insecure.”
Glamour’s October issue will feature Issa on the cover. During her interview, she was able to open up about why the diversity on her staff makes “Insecure” so successful. She did say she appreciates her white employees and she is fine with them not being able to understand all the content the show provides.
Issa makes sure it is known, “Insecure is a show for Black people and it’s made for the Black community.” Majority of writers’ in today’s industry are white. While being interviewed, Issa says, “I just want to do my pure story, and if I’m not, it’s just not worth it. And Prentice [Penny, executive producer, and showrunner of insecure] feels the same way.”
As a black writer, Issa is planning to take over and show her truth. We are here for it!
