Like the 2014 film on which its based, "Dear White People" follows a group of diverse students who navigate life at a predominantly white Ivy League university.
Dear White People was a really good movie. I related to the protagonist during my time in boarding school. Excited about the show.— Ari Addams (@AriAddams) February 9, 2017
To everyone cancelling their Netflix subscriptions over Dear White People, it's a movie from 2014, it's not about white people & it's Satire— Hunterhunt14 (@Real_Hunter14) February 9, 2017
I, a tall, straight, average looking, healthy white man, am offended by this Netflix series "Dear White People", which I will probably enjoy— MP (@PenningtonXCIV) February 9, 2017
