“Dear White People” Trailer Unveiled (Video)

Coming on the heels of  Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes being declared an “angry black woman” by the New York Times, another death by officer in St. Louis and a comic ran by the Boston Herald showing President Obama using watermelon flavored toothpaste, a new film titled Dear White People uses satire in an attempt to shed light on what many minorities experience on a daily basis.

The film focuses on a group of African American students as they deal with the politics of being minorities on a predominantly white college campus, an experience all too familiar for writer and director Justin Simien. 

Having already won the San Francisco Film Festival award for Best Picture, as well as the Sundance Film Festival’s Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Talent, the indie project is set to hit theatres October 17th.
