Issa Rae Talks 'Insecure,' Fame, 'Blackccents,' and More On the Late Show With Stephen Colbert

The Senegalese-American showrunner made an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night.

DIASPORA—Insecure Season 2 is just around the corner! Not only is this a wonderful thing in and of itself, but it's also great because it means that we get to see more of our favorite showrunner, Issa Rae as she makes her press rounds.

The Senegalese-American actor and her undeniable glow, made an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night and reminded us, once again, why she's still our best friend (in our heads).

She talks about the show's upcoming season, what makes her awkward, "blackccents," and being mistaken for rapper Dej Loaf.

She also speaks for all black people when she shares that she doesn't want to be asked to speak for all black people. We feel you, Issa.

Watch the full clip below. Insecure returns this Sunday, July 23.
