Dear White People

Season 2 of the series “Dear White People” is now availible on netflix.  Dear White People follows the experience of several different black students at a predominately white institution and how they navigate in the face of social injustice.  It does an excellent job of exploring  intersectionality, as it chronicles how different students adapt when their identities are challenged racially and sexually.  The series dispels the notion of black monolithism, as it explores how black students with different backgrounds and experiences organize on campus, often conflicting with each other on the solutions they come up with to fight social injustice on campus.  The series follows how the students relationships develop, and are tested by these concepts.  The satire in the series will make you laugh, but will not take away from the severity of the issues it highlights.  Dear White People is a must watch for anyone interested in seeing how identity and racism interact through multiple perspectives with a satirical twist.
