TRIGGER WARNING: “This show is meant for both Black and White audiences and every other color imaginable” as Variety magazine critiques. If discussing race makes you uncomfortable and you want to just comment below without reading this or watching the show, don’t waste your time. You have been warned.
The title “Dear White People” is controversial to some, but that doesn’t mean that this show is attacking White people. For anyone who thinks White people can be victims of racism, let Samantha White (Tessa Thompson circa 2014) remind you this:
Imagine if a white person said that "Black people are incapable of X". People would call for his head. Now, the fun part:
Black people have never held a system of power and used it against white people. Name one point in history when white people have been marginalized and antagonized because of their race when mostly people of color were in power.
Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe has called on the country's remaining white farmers to cede land to black people. "We say no to whites owning our land and they should go," Mr Mugabe told his supporters at a rally.
Yup, blacks are, like, totally incapable of being racist because they've, like, never ever ever held a system of power and used it against white people. Blacks are, like, so angelic and innocent and pure. That's why they commit so few crimes in the US.
