How The Web Series "Awkward Black Girl" Started

One of the reasons that I've kept blogging is because I think it's so important to have different voices and points of view for people to consider. This Melissa Harris-Perry roundtable discussion is really interesting.

As a little girl, I remember it meaning everything to me to watch Diahann Carroll on the television show Julia.

Issa Rae is the creator of "Awkward Black Girl" and I really admire what she's doing. Have any of you watched it?

If you want, consider weighing in on my Paula Deen post. Seems I am more against her than my commenters so far are.

dmarks - I left a comment. Hopefully I won't start a riot over there!

There's going to be no riot... I do screen uncivilized comments. But so far, all have been civil.

On topic, I barely remember Julia. Slightly more I remember a Bill Cosby show in which he yelled something like "Beulah!" in the theme. Along with Lt Uhura, these might have been the only African-Americans I saw anywhere until later.

dmarks - LOL! Good! There just weren't many to see....
