Dear White People the New Consciousness (Review and Trailer)

Can an Indiegogo funded film, as Dear White People was, lay claim to being the new satirical consciousness of young people in a country on its second term of Obama politics? Where the characters use insults like “a Lisa Bonet lookalike wannabe,” and “wannabe Black Panthers” and one of the lead character’s does not like his white girlfriend to say “thang.” The black students in an ivy league school struggle to find their identity in a time of U.S. history where the first black president has been in the White House for two terms. The issue, behind Dear White People‘s amusing look at racism being the “obvious” plot, is more about university students learning how to be true to themselves, learning about their identity and what really constitutes racism in this “new world.”
