‘Dear White People’ Trailer

As it turns out, the Sundance hit is a wickedly sharp satire about race relations in supposedly America. Tessa Thompson, Tyler James Williams, Brandon P Bell, and Teyonah Parris star as four black students dealing with racial bullshit (among other things) at a predominantly white college. Watch the trailer after the jump.
