“You may be inclined to make snap judgments about Dear White People’s intentions based on the title alone. Though such snap judgments are obviously the film’s actual intent—a little egging-on never hurt anyone—it has no desire to condemn its viewers, white or not. Instead, Dear White People wants to upset you: to turn your judgments on their heads; prove your judgments wrong; confuse your preconceptions. This is because its central subject matter—contemporary race relations as filtered through young black experiences—is intrinsically upsetting.” – Via Paste Magazine
