“Writer, actress, and Insecure co-creator Issa Rae is Complex’s new cover star, and in her in-depth interview with Nadeska Alexis she spoke at length about the issues of race in the entertainment industry. When Rae was asked about a comment she made regarding Hollywood’s diversity and progress being tied to racist, old executives dying off, the star didn’t mince words in her response. ‘I’m happy to report that we’re making progress. People are dying,’ she said in joke-y and serious manner. ‘Roger Ailes just died. He needed to go. it’s great. As time goes on… unfortunately we won’t be able to take advantage of it like the younger generation, but it’s happening and I feel like there are people in positions of power who wouldn’t have had an opportunity in the past that have opportunities now and who have, a firm vision and are intent on hiring the people who haven’t been hired in the past. I’m very optimistic on that. People die every day, so it’s great.'”
