Netflix have just released the trailer for their upcoming series “Dear White People” due to arrive globally on April 28th. The Netflix Original Series, based on the 2014 indie film of the same name, takes a satirical look at the so-called ‘post-racial’ America. Set in a fictional Ivy League college, the series takes a witty look at racial relations and identity. The initial teaser trailer resulted in some controversy with accusations of it being anti-white with some even boycotting Netflix.
Personally, I think it looks like it’s going to be a great series and I certainly won’t be boycotting Netflix for daring to mention white privilege!
