Trivia

Although 1st season structurally develops the same story of the original movie, in the series adaptation there are some considerable changes on the dramatic arc of characters Coco Conners, Troy Fairbanks and Dean Fairbanks (Troy's father). In the series Coco is well aware about the social issues in the campus and accepts her race and color, often choosing sides that better fits her personal interests, but in the movie she not only self neglect her race and color, acting as a "white chick" like her pals use to say, but also avoids relationships with others of the same color. In the movie Troy always make decisions that benefits the interest of white students because his father believes that this is the easiest way for a black man succeds in the white politics world. Although Troy's father is demanding and his influence over Troy is suffocating in both movie and TV series, in the series Mr. Fairbanks raises a totally opposite speach, now demanding his son to pursue a political career because black people needs representatives.

User Reviews

 
From a reviewer who bothered to watch the entire season of the show before reviewing
5 May 2017 | by squidbunnySee all my reviews

Many of the negative reviews are identical; somewhere a bastion of racism must have been stirred into brigading the review section in hopes of bringing this show's score down. Many of these also betray a complete lack of familiarity with the material.

Despite the name, Dear White People is more about a variety of black experiences than white people at all (although it does devote an episode to exploring the feelings of a white ally).

Everyone saying the racism skewered with Pastiche is unrealistic is woefully out of touch with America.

The review section is a terrible microcosm of "All Lives Matter" thinking; spotlighting black experience takes nothing away from you as a white person, my dudes. You will survive black characters, black culture, black struggles being spotlighted in a (really very good if you actually watch it instead of reviewing it as instructed by your subreddit) show.
