“Loqueesha” with Damona Hoffman
“Loqueesha” is about a white man who pretends to be a black woman to land a radio advice show job. Lots of people attacked “Loqueesha” when its trailer came out. Some defended it. And Amazon Prime decided to put it on its streaming platform next to “Fleabag” and “Patriot.” It’s a mystery that even Bosch couldn’t solve (slowly).
I asked Damona Hoffman, a real African American woman who dispenses wisdom on her popular podcast, “Dates & Mates” to help dismantle this movie.
