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.Written by
Sofia derisively tells Coco that she knows to ask whether or not Coco's hair is "weaved" because she had to watch Chris Rock's 2009 documentary Good Hair (2009) for a class. When Dear White People was released on DVD, the first trailer that appeared in front of the movie was for Good Hair. See more »

I thought I would give it a chance. I wish I never watched 1 hour of this movie.
First off, it is not funny whatsoever. The dialogue is horrendous, it's really just reference after reference - Exposition after Exposition. The characters are flat. The plot is silly.
The main character is just straight up confusing and unlikeable.
Also, this movie is very racist...against Black people. If a White person would've made this movie, it would have been up there with Birth of a Nation.
Who hyped this movie and thought it was good? It's bad. Very bad. Nothing about this movie is smart, nothing about this movie is funny, nothing about this movie is political and nothing about this movie is Black besides the person who made it and the characters in it.
