Insecure was a hot, new comedy on HBO that starred Issa Rae as Issa and Yvonne Orji as Molly. Two LA millennials looking for love and striving for success in their fields. What I love the most is they are all educated, black people! [thumbs up Issa] Insecure depicts Issa in a long term relationship with her boyfriend Lawrence, who’s played by Blue from the show The Game. Jay Ellis is definitely fine, and showed a lot of his thinly sculpted body. I love how Issa has a typical group of black friends. The awkward one is none other than Issa, the promiscuous one was Molly, the bougie, submissive one is Tiffany [Amanda Seales], and lastly Kelli [Natasha Rothwell] the ratchet, “chubby” one. Every black girl knows this is typical relationship between sister friends.
Back to Lawrence, he really couldn’t keep a job or find one, and had been unemployed for a few years according to the show’s timeline. We all know in this world we live in today a man with no job is no fun! lol Anyway, she attempted to leave and be single, however she loves him and goes back. She’s tempted by an old flame, Daniel and she cheats on Lawrence. Then Lawrence takes a job at Best Buy that he is obviously overqualified for. Meanwhile, Issa cannot stop thinking about how she bust it wide open in the studio for Daniel! When the shhhh hits the fan and Lawrence finds out, he leaves her for a bank teller named Tasha [who during the show became his confidant] in the season’s finale.
Now I have to be honest, I cannot fault Lawrence for leaving but he didn’t even try to work it out. So for the last few days I have been polling men asking the question, “why do men leave after one discretion, but expect a woman to stay after he’s cheated multiple times?” The responses I received were crazy! Some men think that women are not ever going to leave them because many surmised that a woman is just as comfortable as they are in the relationship. Men believe they can commit offense after offense, and their apologies to be accepted. However, when they’re the ones that were wronged in any way, they will not and I repeat will not be so forgiving. I even asked “Mister” what his opinion was, and he said “he couldn’t imagine another man being with his woman the way he is.”. Now while that is understandable, he was very clear he ain’t with the shhhh lol which is cool because I am not either. Lol
So now, I don’t know if I am #TeamLawrence or #TeamIssa because I understand both positions.
So what’s your thoughts?
