... the other Black experience

New 'Insecure' trailer: "That's why I make sure my white clients get less on their tax returns – it's reparations."

We've been waiting all year for HBO's hit comedy series Insecure to return for its second season, and it's finally almost here! In the latest trailer, we pick up right where we left off: Issa (Issa Rae) is newly single, fumbling through awkwardly bad dates. But her ex Lawrence (Jay Ellis), looking fine as ever, isn't completely out of the picture either, as the two clearly haven't gotten over what they had. Molly (Yvonne Orji) shows up to coach Issa through her "hoe phase," and their friend Kelli (Natasha Rothwell) proves why the character has been promoted to series regular, making hilarious quips like, "That's why I make sure my white clients get less on their tax returns – it's reparations. Real talk, don't tell nobody because I'm gonna go to full jail."

Insecure returns on July 23rd at 10:30pm ET. Follow me on Twitter @HariZiyad for weekly reviews!

Anyone apprised of the fiduciary trust, would call it "embezzlememt"; that is how the conduct is taken under our laws. if you happen to be a black descdndant of the American Negro slaves, you would behoove yourself and your family to think breaking the laws for pecuniary gains, will get you a far more stringent sentence than a similarly situated non black would receive. Even a black four year old understands she cannot act up like her white/non black counterparts and expect to go unpunished. Fam. . . We have got to be smarter than that if we are to survive in this racist sociallized paradigm. We are marginalized enough, than go around 'asking for prison-time'
