Blessed, Children, and College: Ballerific Woman - Issa Rae, From Youtube Star to HBO Superstar @balleralert Ballerific Woman - Issa Rae, From Youtube Star to HBO Superstar - Blogged by @Climb_This_Hill ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In a perfect world, men and women would receive equal pay. African American women would be presented the same opportunities as their white counterparts. Rejection would be based on qualifications rather than race. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Unfortunately, this world is far from perfect, however, there are people, more specifically women, who have dedicated their time, money and education to make a positive change. They’ve used their experiences and their encounters with injustices to fight and-or create more opportunities for their children and their children’s children, in an effort to make the world a better place. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ They've put our pain and problems on their backs and created space for change, new opportunities for our brothers and sisters to excel and succeed in a world that is designed against us. This is BlackExcellence. These are BallerificWomen. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One of those special individuals is Ms. Issa Rae. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Best known for her hit HBO series, “Insecure," after making her break with her hit Youtube series, "Awkward Black Girl," Issa has blessed us with over 20 visual projects, which she either produced, starred in, or wrote. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Her YouTube channel has captured over 260,000 subscribers and 20 million views and counting. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Proving not only to be a strong force and inspiration for women in general, Ms. Issa Rae, is a proven example that black women can be bosses too....but we already knew that! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She takes pride in being an actress, writer, director, producer and web series creator. She has earned her college degree in African American studies and has studied at some of the country’s most famed acting academies. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Issa Rae has been featured in Forbes annual, “30 Under 30,” list, Essence Magazine, Rolling Stone, and Vanity Fair, just to name a few. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With so much under her belt, and still so young, we’re pleased to know that Ms. Issa Rae will be blessing us with her talent for many years to come.

cnn.com, Girls, and Memes: E! host Catt Sadler Calls it Quits Because Male Host Gets Paid Twice s mucin@balleralert E! host Catt Sadler Calls it Quits Because Male Host Gets Paid Twice As Much- Blogged By @tktrinidad ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ CattSadler has been a host at E! since 2005 and suddenly she has left the company. In a blog post, Sadler said she left because E! paid her less than her male counterpart. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “How can we make it better for the next generation of girls if we do not stand for what is fair and just today?” There is “a massive disparity in pay between my similarly situated male co-host and myself,” she wrote. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sadler found out about the wage gap earlier in the year and when her contract was up for negotiations, her team tried to get more money, which E! turned down. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “How can I operate with integrity and stay on at E if they're not willing to pay me the same as him? Or at least come close? How can I accept an offer that shows they do not value my contributions and paralleled dedication all these years?" she said. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In turn, E! Told CNN Money, “E! compensates employees fairly and appropriately based on their roles, regardless of gender.We appreciate Catt Sadler's many contributions at E! News and wish her all the best following her decision to leave the network."
