Within the first few minutes of Issa Raes new scripted comedy Insecure,?which premieres Sunday on HBO, shes boldly confronted by assumed societal expectations placed on the modern woman. Which are: You should be married with children, settled in your career and of course, have it all figured out before turning 30 years old.Her character, also named Issa, is 29 and doesnt have it all figured out. She lives in Los Angeles with her loafer boyfriend Lawrence (Jay Ellis), and works at We Got Yall, an education nonprofit that does academic outreach for inner-city youth. And is unfulfilled in general.In the opening scene, the children of We Got Yall instantly recognize her insecurities the moment she steps into the classroom, and force her to face them. One-by-one, they shout out: Why do you talk like a white girl? Whats up with your hair? Why arent you married? And the most biting statement of all: Aint nobody checking for bitter ass black women anymore.Her character quips back black women arent bitter. We are just tired of settling for less -- meaning settling for lesser education, jobs and/or relationships.Rae, a 31-year-old Stanford grad, and the shows co-creator, executive producer and protagonist, refuses to settle. [As black women], we dont get to be completely human with flaws and boring moments [on television]. We dont get to sit in the minutiae of just being black. Its always high stakes and we dont really get to see a real slice of life. Thats something that was important for me to depict, said Rae. I dont have constant drama. My issues ... on a scale, are very minor.But, just because the show is loosely based on Raes day-to-day interactions, doesnt mean they are only relatable to a specific audience. I am completely open and honest about my life and being a black woman [in the series]. But, the show is not the voice of all black women. Its about my very specific experience, but has elements that are relatable for all.?Having cut her teeth as the star and creator of the Awkward Black Girl?web-series (debuted in 2011 and wrapped in 2013), Rae is accustomed to creating authentic stories that are crafted on her own terms. However, Insecure, a full Hollywood production, is more polished, without being watered down.Co-created with Larry Wilmore of the now defunct Comedy Central news-talk program The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore -- Insecure feels genuine, yet digestible for a mass audience. And Rae thinks the diversity of her writers room has something to do with that. Our writers room looks like this country. We have young people and old people. People from the LGBTQ community. Theres black, white and Latino people. It was important for me to have that diversity on the team. It should be relatable to all people, she noted.?As a coming-of-age tale for metropolitan professional women, Insecure can be lazily compared to Lena Dunhams Girls.?But, according to Rae, the two series have very difference voices. I dont see the comparison. We have a different perspective. I love [Lenas] take, but our show is more grown-up. Lena and I are just both young women with shows on HBO, Rae added.However, as accomplished as Rae is, she still battles her own set of insecurities. And of course, shes afraid of the show being misunderstood, or worse ... failing. I want people to embrace the show. I dont want people to think that its risky to take on a show that focuses on women, or even black women. I have to campaign for others to have opportunities in future, she said.A line from LA-based rapper Kendrick Lamar s 2015 song Alright rings out in the shows introduction. The lyrics: All my life I has to fight ... Hard times like yah ... But if God got us then we gon be alright, which seems fitting. Issa Rae is going to be alright.Shes bringing quality content to a mass audience that just happens to feature black women in lead roles. There no social justice spin, no soap box statements, its just a funny and smart-as-hell show, thats relatable for all.Ericka N. Goodman-Hughey is a senior editor at espnW.

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Blair Walsh might have kicked his last ball for the Minnesota Vikings.After Walsh missed a league-leading third extra point and had a field goal blocked in a game the Vikings in lost in overtime to Detroit, their third straight defeat, the team began arranging visits for free agents to evaluate as possible replacements. Coach Mike Zimmer confirmed the tryouts would take place, but he was noncommittal whether the Vikings would sign a kicker before the next game at Washington.Questioned by a reporter Monday about the reasons for considering a change this week, Zimmer quipped, You havent been watching all year?Later in his news conference, Zimmer was asked if he believes Walsh can still be a successful kicker in Minnesota.I believe Blair can be a successful kicker, yes, Zimmer said, leaving out the part about Minnesota.Walsh was an All-Pro as a rookie in 2012, setting an NFL record with 10 field goals made from 50-plus yards. He slipped a little in his second season and more so the year after when the Vikings moved outside at the University of Minnesota during construction of their new stadium. Progress made during the 2015 regular season was eclipsed by the infamous miss of the 27-yard field goal in the closing seconds of the first-round playoff game against Seattle that kept Minnesota from advancing.Since then, he hasnt been able to get back on track. Walsh is 12 for 15 on extra points and 12 for 16 on field goals. The scrutiny has been bothering him, too, as evidenced by a brief, testy postgame interview session at his cubicle Sunday.You guys have got to understand: What do you want the answer to be, you know? I want to be there for my team. Of course I do. But, come on. You guys ask the same questions every week. `Did you make it? `Why didnt it go in? If I had the answer right away, Id tell you, Walsh said. Im confident in what Im doing. I know that Im going to be fine. But its tough right now.Walsh said he wasnt sure whether he still had the support of his teammates.I would hope so, Walsh said. Ive been in this league long enough. Ive had success. But Im in a place where Ive got to make kicks, and I know that.dddddddddddd And I need to be there for my team. Thats really what it comes down to.So whos available? Kai Forbath, Garrett Hartley and Josh Scobee are among the most experienced out of work kickers on the market. Marshall Morgan and Tom Obarski are others in the up-and-coming category.Walsh is signed through 2019 on a four-year contract extension he was given in 2015 worth as much as $13 million. So cutting him would cause a little salary-cap pain into next season. For a team chasing a championship that typically plays close, lower-scoring games, missed kicks can be extra costly.We have to look at all avenues as far as what gives us the best opportunity to win football games, Zimmer said.The extra point missed in the third quarter hit the right goalpost and left the Lions with a 10-9 lead. The 46-yard field goal attempt was low and moving left when it was batted at the line by defensive tackle Tyrunn Walker. There was another transgression by Walsh, though, that hurt the Vikings just as much.After their touchdown with 23 seconds left in regulation, Walsh was directed to drop the kickoff between the 10-yard line and the 5 so the Lions would have to return it and drain more time off the clock.The ball landed in the end zone for a touchback, a gift for a team that was out of timeouts. The Lions moved 35 yards in two plays so Matt Prater could make a 58-yard field goal and force overtime.The blame for the 22-16 loss was spread beyond Walsh, though. The defense faltered down the stretch. The offense was stopped on fourth-and-1 at the 5-yard line midway through the fourth quarter. In the second quarter, a drive that began at the Detroit 18 after an interception turned into a punt.Zimmer was also kicking himself, no pun intended, for only sending two pass rushers on the final heave by Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford that got them within range for Praters kick.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
