The long-awaited finale of the web mini series “Awkward Black Girl” is finally here! Vote below for who you think J should choose and watch out for a special guest appearance from Childish Gambino aka Donald Glover…and no he’s not related to Danny Glover haha. Also, how do people feel about the title of this series? One of my friends had a great point about how the series attaches yet another negative stigma to the black female body and while there are much worse things than being labelled as awkward, it’s not really helping us out any. Other people argue the use of awkward isn’t necessarily intended to being black, rather that J is just happens to be awkward and black. Regardless, the show is hilarious, so enjoy!
