DEAR WHITE PEOPLE … (Official Trailer!) Provocative & Controversial Thursday 14 June, 2012
“Remember when Black movies didn’t neccesarily star a dude in a fat suit and a wig? Or have major plot twists timed to Gospel numbers for no apparent reason? No? Damn…
Well believe it or not there was a time when “Black Art-House” was a thing. When movies like Do The Right Thing, Hollywood Shuffle, and Boyz In Da Hood were breaking box office records as well as making us laugh, cry, and think in ways movies hadn’t before.
The humble producers of DEAR WHITE PEOPLE, a satire about being a black face in a white place, long to bring those days back. But we can’t do it without you!”

Top YOUTUBE Comment re: DEAR WHITE PEOPLE
Racism is so prevalent on the internet that I am no longer surprised or angered by the ignorance, misinformation, flawed logic or basic failures in humanity I’ve seen in the comments section on this. When you are angered by something that should only leave you questioning common occurrences and the status quo, you might want to get angry at yourself instead of those making you re-evaluate the world you live in. This looks promising and I hope it does well. More power to the cast & crew.
