Yesterday, the new YouTube series, The Legend of Human Black Guy premiered yesterday on Issa Rae’s YouTube channel. Issa Rae has created yet another great web series.
The series addresses the many stereotypes that black men face in their daily lives. The series stars rapper, producer, & actor, Lamine “enimaL” Diop. It begins with a simple, black man going on about his day. As he does every day things like drive to work, doing his job, & dealing with car trouble, he encounters many people, particularly white people, who see him as a threat. Although he is doing nothing wrong, he is perceived as scary.
The series takes a close look at how black men have to deal with daily stresses, plus the added stress of being stereotyped. As Issa Rae’s series usually are, it is funny, but still addresses issues in the black community. It is more great work from her. If you have not watched her hit web series Awkward Black Girl, you should look into that as well.
To view this & other series produced & created by Issa Rae subscribe to her YouTube channel, which is simply her name: Issa Rae.
