The Introduction

Quinta vs. Everything is a bunch of segments put together. One dealing with her being the black sheep when it comes to the topic of feminism, another dealing with babies, and one more which deals with a pregnancy scare. All of them seem like shorts you’d see on YouTube just put together and put on Facebook. If not a series of clips from a half hour MTV version of this show, and someone put all the preview material together.

Where else will you have a Black girl argue that Azealia Banks isn’t that bad, give a slightly shady look when someone calls Caitlyn Jenner a beautiful woman, and make it seem this random white child is evil? I can’t tell you. Which is why, I gotta admit, I love this show to the point of wishing it was something bigger. A show with a narrative. For as weird and random as Quinta is, it all being broken up into segments sort of takes away from the jokes. It also takes away from what could have been one solid episode – even if it was 8 minutes.

Like when she was talking to her niece about role models and she was bringing up Cardi B and Nicki Minaj. In my mind, the whole “Quinta vs. Feminism” thing should have been one whole episode. Heck, between that and the Buzzfeed panel, that should have been the start. Especially as we witness Quinta realizing that her perception of feminism, directly conflicts between her expected beliefs of Black feminist and that which would be white feminism ideals. Such as her wanting her man to be the breadwinner, liking some Taylor Swift video, and the complications of supporting Nicki Minaj and Cardi B yet also wanting to disown your niece if they follow in their footsteps.

  1. I like this show. I think it was meant to be just for Facebook so that is why it isn’t long. it is fun and enjoyable. can’t wait to see her get a show on tv but this is a show for the internet and easy to watch. she is the only black girl doing sketch and that is something I am here for.
    The feminism part was great and I haven’t seen anything like it. as an azalea banks Stan, and maybe the only one. I could relate. I want Quinta’s on screen boo- I know that!

    • I get it now, but it still remains a bit hard to not wish she was given a regular show. Just what we see with this has so much potential and while I get everyone has to pay their dues, I thought all she has done before and during her tenure at Buzzfeed would have counted.
