In episode 26 of Black Girl Squee, hosts Inda Lauryn (@indascorner) and Didi Jenning (@dustdaughter) squee about the Emmys and the latest casting news. Then they get into the Season 3 Premiere of HTGAWM (SPOILERS!). R*pe apologists catch the fade and Inda gives us another relevant womanist vocab word.
As for the print, Inda and I retract one awardee and shoutout to another who made history as the first actor of Egyptian descent to win an Emmy Award. But don’t worry, that still leaves a lot of print to talk about!
The first awardee of the episode is Queen Sugar‘s Kofi Siriboe! Just a gif of him in an all-white suit stopped my heart. So imagine what happened when I started watching the series.
arrives at the Premiere Of OWN’s “Queen Sugar” at Warner Bros. Studios on August 29, 2016 in Burbank, California.
Our next two awardees are athletes who are unapologetically Black and political. Inda named Colin Kaepernick, whose refusal to stand for the National Anthem has sparked debate all over the country.

Last but not least is Inda’s forever boo, retired Seahawks’ running back, Marshawn “Beast Mode” Lynch. Marshawn recently supported Colin’s protest while visiting Conan O’Brian’s show.
I’d rather see him take a knee than stand up, put his hands up, and get murdered. So, I mean, my take on it is [expletive]’s got to start somewhere, and if that was the starting point — I just hope people open up their eyes to see there’s really a problem going on, and something needs to be done for it to stop. And I mean, if you’re really not racist, then you’re going to see what he’s done, what he’s doing, [not] as a threat to America, but just addressing a problem that we have. – Marshawn Lynch on Conan
