    Dear White People is a shining example of pure creativity and being socially focused. The film focuses on a group of college students from different cliques, who all begin to realize that they share one of the same plights being...racism/accepted racial separation. The way that subject is addressed and examined in a fresh way by a fresh voice is astounding. Any key topic going on like: LGBT awareness, interracial dating, internalized racism and beauty standards are all discussed with wit and honesty. Dear White People also showcases some of the best young actors, destined to become the next generation of greats. This is definitely a movie to see because the conversations afterwards need to be had.

    Hot Button Satire

    "Dear White People" is a film that hits a chord and with good reason. Given the news one hears in the news about racial inequality, it seemed almost serendipitous for "Dear White People" to shine a light on it in the most controversial place possible: a prestigious and (no pun intended) "white bread" university. The jokes and heart hit fast and hard while asking its audience to think long and hard about where race relations have gone and where they need to go. Tessa Thompson is an actress who will definitely go far.

    My husband and I rented this move and knew we immediately needed to purchase it. Dear White People is so smartly written, managing to give every character multiple dimensions while still maintaining a point of view. It is certainly appropriate considering the where we find ourselves culturally right now. Hopefully someone watches it and comes away having learned things or thinking about issues that they may have previously not paid attention to.

    Tessa Thompson is my queen. I love her forever and always. Obsession aside, I couldn't get into this movie a while back. After watching the first volume of the Netflix series, I gave it another try and really fell in love with it (even though the TV series seems to do a better job of developing things---but also its 10 hours versus 2 hours).

    This movie isn't getting the attention it deserved, it should have received the Oscar nominations that the movie SELMA got, it had an amazing screenplay and excellent direction, compelling characters, a very thought provoking story that explores both sides without pointing fingers. This is the new movie to watch when discussing race relations. SEE IT!!

    I loved the inclusion of the gay character, it adds depth to the movie. It would seem on this campus that bullying is a way of life and the fact that the deans child can run things seemingly without consequences just baffled my mind. I love to see movies that are uplifting and teach good life lessons and in a few ways this movie filled the bill!

    This movie speaks to so many societal issues. You have to pay attention are you will miss the meaning of a lot of the dialog. This is not your - just sit and be entertained movie - you have to think about what is being presented. If you just want to be entertained this may not be the movie for you.

    I watched this film for a diversity assignment for a class I am taking. I was not expecting this film to be as thought provoking as it was. Racism was viewed through a fresh perspective, one that I have not seen portrayed on film before. If you are on the fence about watching this film, go for it!

    This movie was great if you ask me, it touched on stereotypes that most people hold of African Americans including the struggle that african Americans face within their own culture. For some people they may have to watch it more then once to completely understand

    I wasn't sure what to expect before watching it but I'm glad I did. It was refreshing to see a movie with a predominantly black cast that did not feature a bunch of caricatures and stereotypical archetypes. Very entertaining movie and I highly recommend it.

    The movie was a good take on what is happening on some college campuses today. It was different from Spike Lee's "School Daze", but it dealt with college life and the stereotype of how we as African Americans perceive each other.

    What do I say abut this movie? Being a African American it made me think about some of the issues in the movie. But when it comes down to it, just a movie not that serious. Smart and funny movie all the same.

    It turned out to be a different movie from what I expected but still enjoyed it. More of a dramedy than stariaght comedy, it still offfers plenty of jokes and poignant commentary.

    An eye- opening look at race relations on college campuses right now. Funny but serious, wise and troubling all at once. I ccoildn't believe the newspaper headlines shown at the end were real.

    I thought this movie was supposed to "flip' the current stereotypes and ideas associated with racism and the racist lingo of today's age. I didn't find this movie entertaining or provacative

    Never had the chance to see this movie in the theatre. Was happy with the purchase. Blu ray was great and this was a pretty funny movie. Glad I purchased it and had the chance to watch.

    "Dear White People" is a funny, well-written movie that delves into the serious issue of race. I believe it is a movie that people of all backgrounds could learn from and appreciate.

    Many of the things randomly said in movie are definite conversational quirks. Stereotypes are muted but are throughout movie. I enjoyed watching it and would recommend to others.

    I bought this movie after reading a review in Rolling Stone. I thought it was well done, and is certainly a valid statement regarding racism that still exists in our society.
