I’m really hopeful because from what I’ve seen, there’s been no transphobia, no homophobia, no racist bullshit (the show is about racism that woc, specifically Black women, encounter on the job/daily life, but you get what I mean), SHFIODHFIOSAHFIOHFIASODFHOIAFHOA.
Y’ALL. BLACK WOMEN DOING SHIT.
SHOWIN Y’ALL HOW WE GET IT DONE
BLACK WOMEN GIVEN POSITIVE REPRESENTATION IN THE MEDIA
BLACK WOMEN RUNNING SHIT
The Unwritten Rules, which I’ve written about before, is one of my favorite web shows. It’s about a young Black woman—played by Aasha Davis—working and living in white spaces, and it deals with the very real isses that we as Black women face, but in a funny way. Seriously, it’s hilarious! So much of the stuff we laugh about on tumblr is covered in this show, which makes me die even more. XD
Season two is gonna be on the way, but first they need some money!
Black women writing and representing us in a positive light. Women of color being given a voice that’s positive! And the best part? There is barely any problematic material whatsoever. I say “barely” because maybe something might have gone under my radar. But I can safely say that I only side eye’d once while watching this show, and that was in an episode that explored her feelings of displacement amongst white people and also amongst Black people (it addressed real insecurity, though; not being deemed Black enough. BUT. Maybe it was just me, but the portrayal of “Black Black” was over the top.)
But seriously, I flat out recommend this show to every single one of y’all.
Every one of their episodes is on youtube so you can watch allll of season one (12 episodes, each around 6,7 minutes long, but they get progressively longer. The longest is 12 minutes) here! (Link to the “Unwritten Rules Playlist on youtube. All of the episodes are there! The order is: Trailer, “What is the Unwritten Rules?” and then the show episodes. You can choose what to watch through the list on the side, though!) Just a heads up, though; for some reason, the playlist runs BACKWARDS. So be sure to scroll down and choose episode 1, lol.
To see Kim William (the creator of The Unwritten Rules) talking about the purpose of the show and why she created it, you can watch this short little clip here. This video is also included in the playlist.
