‘Dear White People’ Teaser Probes America’s Worst Tendencies—and Halloween Costumes

As the United States continues to struggle with race relations, filmmaker Justin Simien is willing to step up and help us learn to be better. Appropriately, each lesson starts with three words: Dear White People

The first teaser for the 10-episode Netflix series, adapted from the 2014 movie of the same name, appeared online this morning. Apparently, things really haven’t improved at the fictional Winchester University, where Samantha White uses her radio program to speak truth to power. Here, we find her urging her caucasion colleagues to resist using Halloween as an excuse to wear blackface—a request that falls on deaf and very dumb ears.

Justin Simien will write the entire series and direct the first episode. The show will debut April 28, assuming that America hasn’t slid into utter Purge-like chaos before that point.
