Trivia

Sam's days and nights of word fight with an anonymous Twitter account is based on Justin Simien's experiences with Twitter trolls after 1st season premiere. But according to his interview at IndieWire.com, he "never went as hard or as long as Sam did", although it was necessary to realize how much energy he was wasting with it. See more »

Say Yes to Collective Guilt
11 December 2017 | by olgavalentovaovSee all my reviews

Do you know what? This show is so stupid I can't even get mad - it would be like yelling at a puppy who peed in your shoes. If I didn't know that the people making and starring in this actually agreed with the political points presented (and if it were just a little bit more funny) I would be convinced that this was a satire - a not-so-bad parody on social justice. But alas, we are actually meant to take this seriously; and that's comedy gold in itself. Do tell me, Miss Samantha White, how you feel oppressed and marginalized in your all-black student groups (which there are at least three of on the campus), among your (almost) all-black friends, on a university with a black dean, where the only person spouting racist, divisive crap is you and your posse. The way Samantha's friends looked at her when they found out she was sleeping with a white guy tells you everything you need to know about this show. It's filled with black people doing the eye roll when somebody says "reverse racism", painful stereotypes that are somehow even more painful because this time it's black people doing it to themselves. I mean, that "movie night" or whatever that was supposed to be, was just laughable. But it did a great job of portraying all those black students as a united mass where everybody thought the same and expressed themselves in the same way. The serious use of the word "woke" in almost every scene just made me cringe. The same goes for "hetero patriarchal". These are just stupid, meaningless buzzwords invented by idiots for idiots. There is no such thing as a "black face" party. Not in this day and age and we're presented with it like it's still a thing. Though, I must admit, if I were subjected to Samantha's condescending "Dear White People" every day, I would probably be happy to slather myself in black paint and then laugh as every single woke black person lost their mind. No, god forbid a white person say the N word, but black people can belittle, condescend to and be racist to every single white person they see and it's no big deal. And then we get laughed at for saying "reverse racism". You're right, it's just racism. I know, I said I wasn't mad - I sure as hell sound like it, but I'm not. Based on the comments and the ratings and reviews, it seems that people really hate it or they really love it, and I have the feeling that everybody knew what they were getting into before even watching the show. In that, it's harmless - it's not going to make anybody switch sides - whether you hate it or love it, it'll only reinforce viewpoints you already had. It's not original, it's not new and it sure as hell isn't smart. Depending on where you stand it's a feel good show/hate-watching material. Trite, bland, useless and mindless.
