Issa Rae Took The Black People She’s Rooting For, Put Them On A Boat And Did ‘Yacht S**t’

The Black Excellence we deserve

Issa Rae is not only still rooting for everybody black, but she's also trying to get everybody lit in the process. 

This Emmy weekend brought the revival of the Insecure star's #YachtShit party, celebrating both fellow black Emmy nominees as well as the fellow creators of Black Hollywood. Based on the pictures that flooded our timelines this weekend, it seems the actress needs to add party planning to her resume. 

The star-studded turn-up included Tiffany Haddish, Tracee Ellis Ross, Lil Rel Howrey, Yvonne Orji and Amanda Seales. However, they were just the tip of the iceberg of the Black Excellence in attendance.

As you can see, everybody was truly living their best life.

This year’s Emmys will showcase the most diversity in the award shows 70-year history with 36 non-white nominees across categories. Issa Rae is among the nominees as she receives her first Emmy nod for lead actress in a comedy. Tracee Ellis Ross is also up for an award this year, and Tiffany Haddish took home her first Emmy at the Creative Arts Emmys last weekend.

Just know we're rooting for you too, Issa! As for the invite to the party, it's cool; we know it got lost in the mail.

The 2018 Primetime Emmy Awards air Monday on NBC at 8 p.m. ET.
