    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!!

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    Even though this film is a parody about how American society deals with racial barriers and stereotypes, it makes one analyze those elements from different perspectives.

    See this movie! It is a Must if you want to be able to have an intelligent conversation about race today. (Spoiler: ours is far from a "post-racial" society.)

    Contrary to the title, the movie really is not an open letter to white people. It's more about the experiences of black individuals in a mostly white world.

    A lot of people didn't get this movie as a piece of satirical social commentary, but if you understand the concept, it's pretty well done.
