The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl by Issa Rae

In the bestselling tradition of Sloan Crosley’s I Was Told There’d Be Cake and Mindy Kaling’s Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, a collection of humorous essays on what it’s like to be unabashedly awkward in a world that regards introverts as hapless misfits, and black as cool.

My name is “J” and I’m awkward—and black. Someone once told me those were the two worst things anyone could be. That someone was right. Where do I start?

Being an introvert in a world that glorifies cool isn’t easy. But when Issa Rae, the creator of the Shorty Award–winning hit series “The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl,” is that introvert—whether she’s navigating love, work, friendships, or “rapping”—it sure is entertaining. Now, in this debut collection of essays written in her witty and self-deprecating voice, Rae covers everything from cybersexing in the early days of the Internet to deflecting unsolicited comments on weight gain, from navigating the perils of eating out alone and public displays of affection to learning to accept yourself—natural hair and all.

A reflection on her own unique experiences as a cyber pioneer yet universally appealing, The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl is a book no one—awkward or cool, black, white, or other—will want to miss.

This includes dealing with the hardships that come along with working, dating, partying and life in general. Rae apparently still has fans purchasing the book because she began trending early Monday morning after receiving backlash from fans via Twitter. The trolling started when a fan revealed a highlighted a passage from her book where Rae encourages Black woman to embrace the idea of dating Asian men who get the same treatment as black women in society; being heavily stigmatized and undesired. Rae suggested the two races join forces due to Asian woman dating outside their race and black men doing the same, hence, suggesting why not date each other. Rae being completely satirical in her book received the wrath of the Twitter fingers. Check out the commentary below:.
