Storyline

A social satire that follows the stories of four black students at an Ivy League college where controversy breaks out over a popular but offensive black-face party thrown by white students. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, the film explores racial identity in acutely-not-post-racial America while weaving a universal story of forging one's unique path in the world.

Trivia

Producer Lena Waithe and writer-director Justin Simien met in a scriptwriter's group. Despite the fact that the script was over 200 pages long, Waithe was so impressed with Simien's writing that she told him if he could figure out a way to streamline the script she would produce it, despite having never produced a film before.

Racism pure and simple
28 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is nothing more than leftist propaganda to promote more racism and the lies that the left uses to create hate in order to have power over the black populous. Research the history of the left and you find that they are the promoters of racism and now, suddenly, they want to be the ones that pretend they had no part it in and are the champions of equality all while pushing inequality and hatred for the sake of power.
