The first trailer for Dear White People made an impression by declaring what it wasn’t. It wasn’t The Help, it wasn’t The Blind Side, it wasn’t The Butler, and it definitely wasn’t Gremlins, which one character argues is secretly about “suburban white fear of black people.” Now a new Dear White People trailer has arrived to tell us what the movie actually is.
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.
