Dear White People's satirical take on what's wrong with our world delivers with socially relevant punch. It is an on point social dissection in all its millennial glory and as the saying goes: It's funny 'cause it's true.
I always thought that the series was better than the film, and season 2 is so much more elevated, so much more sophisticated, so much more intellectual, so much more funny than season 1. And season 1 was fantastic.
Season 1 saw the characters relating differently to being black, while Season 2 delves further into other parts of who they are - Coco's ambition, Joelle's pride, and for Sam, her whiteness in addition to her blackness.
I can't think of any show that does better with the topics that DWP does right. It excels at fully immersing itself within queer black identity, but also can be so surface level that it is accessible to everyone.
