Just as bland as the movie...only worse
3 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

Having loved the movie, (not really I gave it 3 stars, then changed it to 1 star), I just knew this would be the same old tiresome 'let's hate on ole WHITEY' show. It did not disappoint. As said in many reviews, all they do is preach how blacks are being discriminated against. Instead of pushing racial relations even further apart with trash like this, how about making a show that pulls it together. We all thought Obama would be a great president to do this. Being half black, half white, there should be no better person. But racial relations haven't been this bad since the 60's. And "Dear White People" only furthers the division. Just like the other lower reviews (1-4 stars), I feel many will look at this as racism instead of a true review. But isn't that how pretty much everything is perceived nowadays? You don't vote for Obama, you are a racist. You vote for Trump. You are a racist. These people need to learn that the world does not revolve around them...or any other race. Earth is for all people. Every color. I hope Amazon learns from its mistake...but probably not.
