It is the final season of INSECURE on HBO!
And this last episode? Oh my! There was the great and bold Amanda Seales pretending to be a part of the Divine 9: an AKA (Alpha Kappa Alpha). Now, my godmother is an SGR (Sigma Gamma Rho), and some of my own mentors are Deltas (Delta Sigma Theta). I mean, the patron saint of this space–Ida Bell Wells Barnett!–she was a Delta!
But all of the Black Greek internet is UPSET that there was a depiction of an AKA! Just the depiction was just–OOH! I mean, that community is–they do not play about things like this! At all! Now, to be fair, I don’t now if Amanda’s character had all the accoutrement that an actual soror would have. But, the response the internet right now? And to come?
Like, y’all are this mad that a Black woman, on a Black run show, with a Black ass cast, had a character who dressed up as an AKA and y’all are pressed like a white shirt?
I. Am. Confusion.
