Donald Trump should hunker down and binge watch Netflix’s Dear White People — he could learn a thing or two.
DWP follows a group of Black students at an Ivy League college dealing with race relations and social issues. What makes the show compelling, however, is the easily digestible and more often than not, humorous dialogue.
“I want to give you a little distance because if it gets too real we don’t necessarily want to talk about these things,” creator Justin Simeien told HipHollywood while on the red carpet of the series premiere. “I want to keep it at a little bit of a hyper-reality so we can really go to those places and not feel like you’re being preached at.”
HipHollywood can confirm that the show, which tackles issues like homosexuality, interracial relationships and just simply, white privilege, wrapped the day Trump was voted into the Oval. “If that’s not a haunting situation for you right there,” star Brandon Black told us. “We had to pretend like that wasn’t happening to finish the show.”
As for the meaning of Dear White People, the program’s star Logan Browning revealed to us it’s about the idea of “young people” using their “voices because they are important, they are the future.”
Dear White People is streaming now on Netflix.
