Yo, Is This Racist? Podcast f/t DISGRASIAN Day 4: Was The HBO ‘Girls’ Controversy About Racism Or Sexism?

Happy Thursday! Sick of me talking yet? I hope not, because this is my favorite of the Yo, Is This Racist? podcasts I’ve had the pleasure to participate in so far.

The cast of HBO's 'Girls'

The cast of HBO’s ‘Girls’

In this one, host Andrew Ti and I talk about HBO’s GIRLS, which got a lot of attention in its first season for the show’s lack of diversity. Was it fair? Or were people just piling on because the show was created by a woman? Have a listen:

The post I wrote last year about people of color finally appearing on GIRLS can be found here, and the one about women critiquing women is here.

Happy birthday to comedian Aziz Ansari, who turned 27 this week! This guy’s got everything: he’s cute and hilarious, stars on a network comedy and currently has a sweet development deal with Judd Apatow. He’s become a cult hero and rolled large with Jay-Z. He’s been on Letterman, for chrissake. All by the tender age of 27.

So much already achieved! Yet so much life ahead of him!

Eh. I’m too jealous now. F*ck Ansari!
