I know it’s 2015 and the movie came out in 2014. I’m late and? Lol But After FINALLY watching it, I thought I’d pick the crazy things I spotted out for the world to notice.
I thought “Dear White People” was going to send a valuable message. Instead, it shows racism at it’s best! If you haven’t seen it, I advise that you watch it. Or even skip through it because it was a struggle to watch it all as it was very slow!
It almost put me to sleep! Seriously! Had me with one eye open like…..
The part that intrigued me the most was the university party. It makes me wonder how the world really acts. Trying to fit in is one thing, but to attempt to be like another race is something no one would like if it happened to them.
Don’t you agree?
The party “[was] a minstrel-like black party for WHITE students. Guests are encouraged to arrive in blackface, fried chicken and “purple drank” in hand, to wallow unabashedly in every abhorrent stereotype.” -via National Post.
In an article called Amherst Student it also says, “This culture war culminates in an “Unleash Your Inner Negro” party thrown by the nearly all-white members of Winchester’s comedy magazine, Pastiche. White students show up to the event in blackface, wielding gold guns and grills, wearing Barack and Michelle Obama masks and flashing gang signs.”
