Dear white people

16 05 2017

I recently enjoyed two great, sharp pieces on race -and specifically blackness – in America. Dear White People is the TV spin-off of the 2014 movie, and actually an improvement on the original. Its funny and involving with a cast of likeable – and all deeply flawed – characters, giving it much more nuance that you might assume from the title.

Get Out, meanwhile, is a witty examination of race and racism through through the lens of a horror flick – and it works, as scary as it is thought-provoking.
