So I'm in the middle of season two of "Dear White People" ( Netflix-original ). Or was until a severe storm knocked my power out, estimated repair time 7:30 pm, followed by 10:30 pm, followed by 12:30 am, Tues June 23. . . so maybe never. At any rate, the series ( 95% Rotten Tomatoes ) is based on the acclaimed film of the same name.
It follows a group of students of color at Winchester University, a predominantly white Ivy League college. The students are faced with a landscape of cultural bias, social injustice, misguided activism and slippery politics. Through an absurdist lens, the series uses irony, self-deprecation, brutal honesty and humor to highlight issues that still plague today's"post-racial" society.
