News & Interviews for Dear White People: Season 1
I enjoyed the show, and that's an accomplishment because I didn't like the film at all. I think this incarnation did a lot to flesh out characters in ways I found satisfying, and its use of multiple angles on the same basic events worked pretty well.
As someone who also went to a PWI, I get that the perception of the black student body at PWIs might align closely with what's presented in Dear White People.
I think Dear White People, the show, is a tremendous artistic achievement. It's always hinting that there is something beyond the pleading and wokeness, something that the show's more militant characters can't see.
Dear White People juggles aspirations to be both a scripted commentary on race and a sitcom about college students, and fails mildly in both regards.
There is a ton of plot in Dear White People, but the way in which it plays fast and loose with storytelling devices makes that plot both easily digestible and entertaining to watch.
Audience Reviews for Dear White People: Season 1
Outstanding, outrageous and above all satirical, Dear White compliments and criticizes every racial aspect of modern society while creating thought-provoking dialogue and sequences that explore other social problems, spiced with witty doses of brilliant humor.
