Dear White People translated Higher Learning into a language today's black students on white campuses can understand

DWP is the feature directorial debut for Justin Simien, having previously raised most of the film's budget from the crowd-funding site Indiegogo. The film is a satirical story about a group of black students at a fictitious Ivy League school where tensions reach a boiling point when white students throw a black, "ghetto themed" party. To be blunt, I didn't like the movie. I went into it with a "sock it to me attitude." What I got was a watered down wannabe Spike Lee joint. It's clear that Simien is a Spike Lee fan right down to the directing style, but when it comes to the in-your-face attitude, it falls flat. The "show down" at the aforementioned party was a joke. Some bottles were broken, a few stereo speakers knocked over, and a face was punched; that was about it. The one star that shined from the movie was Tyler James Williams, formerly from Everybody Hates Chris, playing the socially awkward, gay character, Lionel Higgins. He just wants to be himself while cliques try to claim him as their own. Do yourself a favor and watch, "Do The Right Thing" instead.

Snarky, witty film that's about more than just race

Dear White People is a quick-witted film with a provocative title. For those who have not seen the full film, there is definitely more to it than what's revealed in the trailer. Initially focusing on race, the film goes deeper into the unexpected and unique aspects of each character, uncovering more than what's just skin deep and taking a look at identity. It's a very interesting movie about self acceptance in a world where issues around race, sexual orientation, and general stereotyping still exist. This film is much more than a black film about race issues in America. I highly recommend it for folks who are interested in a bold film with great dialogue and archetypal characters turned multidimensional.

Angry lecture disguised as comedy? Well-aimed social satire? Or both? You decide!
