8 Reasons to Watch 'Dear White People'
- The plot of Dear White People is very thought-provoking. It tells you about the life of students in a fictional college. The campus is predominantly white, so racial tensions come up every now and then. At some point, Sam White, a biracial revolutionary, begins a radio show called Dear White People. This show pisses off white students, perplexing them, as well as black students, who are trying to fit into the white community. However, as Sam keeps on talking about equality, she encounters a lot of issues, including tone-deaf classmates, faculty members who want her to stop, and others.
- The show makes you reflect on yourself and on the events happening around you. Every episode offers you a new perspective on the things you think you have always known. It does not only cover typical college issues, but also gives you a peek into the inner world of African American students.
- Dear White People will help you better understand the reason why people of color want to be represented in movies and on television.
- Watching the show will give you an insight into why many African Americans do not want to date outside their race.

And these issues will not be solved until some actions are taken. Food for thought, huh?
