Published: Wednesday 23rd Jul 2014 by Sam
dear-white-people-movie-thatgrapejuice

From its title alone, it’s clear ‘Dear White People’ aims to grab the masses by the collar and playfully shake them up.

Set to hit US theaters this Fall, the satirical film tackles issues of race with a comical edge that has had critics raving since its debut at the Sundance Film Festival six months ago.

The Lionsgate film, which hits cinemas on October 17th, is already being tipped for big things.

We could gush about the many laughs the movie serves up, as well as its potent home truths, yet you can see for yourself below thanks to its newly unwrapped trailer.

Flip the hood to check it out. ‘Everybody Hates Chris’ star Tyler James Williams appears alongside Tessa Thompson, Teyonah Parris, Dennis Haysber, and more.

      I just clicked on your name. Omg, I miss Layne!
      I grew up listening to him in AIC. My favorite song
      from them is ‘Them Bones’! He had a unique voice.

    This looks promising!

    P.S. she is right that black people can’t be racist,
    because racism, implies that you are not just
    prejudiced but in the majority, of the power system.

    We can be prejudiced, not racist. There is a difference.

        Lol, it was a stone that was given to me on my birthday and i loved, it’s the way you write and attitude, i guess, i sensed mmm that’s a bro 😀

      • tits mcgee July 23, 2014

        Interesting about the stone. Onyx(black) is beautiful!
        I can understand why you were mesmerized! Lol!

        About the way I write. Meh. Interesting theory tho..

        You did exactly what the movie implied. You’re so ignorant sometimes yet you’re obsessed with this blog. The irony….

    • ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) July 24, 2014

      Absolutely stupid, “blacks can’t be racist?” Ok, continue to believe blacks are less than others. That’s why blacks will continue to struggle in their own poor ways of thinking

      • tits mcgee July 24, 2014

        You believe what you want, hun.
        If you are in the minority of the power system,
        you cannot by definition be racist, just prejudiced.

        By the way, I was only talking strictly about
        the definitions, of the terms.

        You are being ignorant by assuming, I
        have any agenda, to not take responsibility
        for MY life, and place it in others hands.

        Don’t assume. It makes an a ss out of you not me…

      • tits mcgee July 24, 2014

        How do I assume blacks are less? By speaking
        the truth that for all the talk and facade, in America
        we are still less(in power) than our Arian counterparts?
        Am I wrong?

        Tell me how, I am wrong. I didn’t say it is an excuse
        to not keep fighting to do better, or to blame anybody
        NOW, or to talk bad about the decendents of oppressors,
        but it is what it is.

      Not sure why my comment was separated from the

      • tits mcgee July 24, 2014

        We blacks (slaves)and indentured Chinese people,
        in the West, were called cowboys. While white men
        were called Cowmen.

        Now we use this cowboy term so loosely. Power structure
        is more than money, etc. Even REAL racist terms
        are bandy about without consequence till this day.

        So don’t even..

      • tits mcgee July 24, 2014

        I guess I am racist by listening to the above bands
        and having ALWAYS, being friends of people
        with different hues and cultures.

    “as if spike lee and oprah had an angry baby” hahahaha this look hella funny

  8. ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) July 23, 2014

    Huh…..you know..I think I’m done with ALL the slave and “Dear White People” type of movies. Black people love to point out how their the suppressed race to white people but hate when a white person reiterates what they put in movies, music, magazines etc every d*mn day. I now think black people just want to continue complaining based on their own personal shortcomings, it has nothing to do with white people. If you were secure in yourself, why the f*ck do you need white validation?? I’m not saying don’t stand up for blatant racism if it’s clear that’s what the situation is but don’t ALWAYS assume you didn’t get a job cause your black, or you went to jail because your blackm or hell, didn’t get that parking space because your black. I won’t be seeing this, not here for the same Tyler Perry “whoa it’s me (aka black)” type of movie. Let a white person create a movie called “Dear Black People” LOL!!!!!! Then ya’ll wanna call Al Sharpton haha!! A mess. It’s 2014, move passed the ignorance and be secure in yourself. Get an education, walk and talk with intelligence and integrity, try and get out of your environment if you know it’s ratchet and get over the hate from ignorant people.

    • ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) July 23, 2014

      And I don’t care if it’s comedy or not, come up with a movie that doesn’t always have to rehash “black issues,” and maybe more black actors will get scene in a different light for better roles in Hollywood. Ask Will Smith. You don’t see him hopping in every “12 Years a Slave” movie..

      • Bam Bam July 23, 2014

        After reading your lengthy post I would go see the movie you detailed also because that is a huge issue in the black community. But where I disagree with you is that white people “don’t” make a difference between black people. You can’t make a movie like the one you talked about without addressing where that way of thinking came from… Look at commercials, every time they show a black woman on a commercial how does she look. Light skin, light eyes, and curly hair, but its our fault. You can’t be too dark because you will alienate your audience. All people discriminate against each other from all races. You can’t tell me how to feel when I have had a teacher stand in my mother’s face and tell her she was surprised at how well mannered I was or if my father had enough education to help me with my homework. or if I knew who he was…. I could go on but the issues in the black community stem from someplace.

    • Bam Bam July 23, 2014

      Well im going to see it. I know that some people do vomplain and do nothing about it but thats their dumb ass. U say its movies like these that are setting black people back. Look at anytime a black person has won an Oscar they are never shown in a good light. Hatt NcDaniels was a slave. Denzel Washington was a slave and a crooked cop. Jamie and Jennifer were addicts. Monique was a unfit child molesting mother. Whoopi was a con artist. Halle was a thot. Most if these were made by white people and these movies and movies like Dear Whire People are the problem. Aight..

      • Bam Bam July 23, 2014

        *complain

      • ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) July 23, 2014

        Hey@BamBam no I didn’t say it’s setting them back but these black actors continue to play in movies with the same role and then Hollywood then deems them as just a “slave” character or “repressed” black character for films. And then they get cast as the same type character they played in Color Purple based on their track record. Denzel did that once and then moved on, he didn’t continue to tell the same story over and over. Same with Jamie Foxx. But I feel a lot black people who want to blame many of their own issue on white people see this movie and say “yeah! see that’s how white people think, told you. That’s why I hate white people, always keeping us down blah blah.” But what they fail to realize is it’s their own insecurities and self hate that keeps them down. Black people are their own worst enemy! Take TGJ for example, 90% of people come to this blog just to drag and since it’s an urban blog it’s black people attacking other blacks who are success. I know it’s all in good fun (for some, other really think that ignorant) and I enjoy a good drag for a laugh here and there too but in real life, A LOT of black people do look at their follow black counterparts and tear them down based on how they look, dress, their skin tone, hair texture etc. A white person will just see you as black and barely notice the “slightly bouncer hair, or paper bag skin tone lol. You’re still black to them, no better and no worse. But to black people, if your not a Beyonce, blacks start tearing each other down. I can go on and on about self hate in the black community and lack of accountability but my point is, I’m tired of the same ol’ “I hate white people” or “We’re being suppressed by the white man” being the only thing blacks want to talk about and agree on, especially on major platforms like movies, television, music etc. I dare a black director to make a hollywood theatrical film on the hate, racism and suppression within the black culture that goes on EERYDAY. Like a REAL storyline of a dark skin girl getting harassed by her own classmates of the same race, or how a mother treats one child in favor of another based on whatever, the lack of education and compassion for one another. A movie that would instead of shaming white people (or try to) shame blacks themselves.

    • Dev July 23, 2014

      All of the movies. ALL two of them? Its funny that people have a problem with black based movies but will happily watch and award films from other cultures that show their disadvantages although they have now overcome them and become very successful.
      Although this blog is trash, its a blog and most people go on blogs and comment rubbish, no-one is on her for current affairs and to change the world so i cannot see what the deal is.
      With both this site and black based culture…. don’t tune in.

      P.S. This site promotes white artists

      • ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) July 24, 2014

        1. I know this blog promotes white artists, i said this blog is majority urban based and has majority black artists, but not all.
        2. I wasn’t speaking on this site or the commenters being the issue, and I don’t expect them to change the world with their comments lol. The ISSUE I’m referring to is there ARE individuals in this country and around the world who truly BELIEVE the way some of the things commented on this blog aka the ignorance and the self hate. Black people as a whole (beyond TGJ) keep stereotypes alive due to their own choices, self hate, insecurities and LACK of accountability. Do you honestly think the word n*gger would still have the power it does today if black people didn’t take offense to when another race said it AND YET blacks use it on one another as a term of endearment? Why don’t you think the word “chink (or whatever it was for asians) didn’t last or have any affect like the word n*gger does today?? Because instead of trying to “flip the script” like black people did, they decided to do even better, they decided to OUTsmart “the white man” in education to PRIDE themselves on that. And now they have technology and science WE as a nation pay for. They have their issues yes, but they STRIVE for better lives using EDUCATION and HARD WORK (at whatever job that maybe no matter how degrading it is) while blacks strive to be the next Kanye or Lil Kim, calling everyone a n*gger and wanting to just make money for the sake of personal profit USING the same stereotypes we take offense to (talking like they’re slow, glorifying drugs, stealing, poverty aka “hood life”. And NO community unless it benefits them.

        I just think this movie (again comedy or not) is just another movie about a passed down “excuse” on why blacks are suppressed instead of BLACKS taking accountability. AND keeps stereotypes reinforced instead of creating a movie about a black boy or black girl getting a scholarship to every ivy league school in America. Or a black girl who might of grow up around ignorance but became a lead doctor or secretary of state and gave back to the same community that tried to tare her down and SHOWED them another way to think and inspired them to follow her footsteps to success. I just want a DIFFERENT story to be told about black people from Hollywood, and BLACKS have to be the ones to change it first. Don’t wait for “white” Hollywood to do it.

      • ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) July 24, 2014

        @Dev “Its funny that people have a problem with black based movies but will happily watch and award films from other cultures that show their disadvantages although they have now overcome them and become very successful.”

        But why is THIS black struggle THE ONLY black struggle they want to show? ALWAYS surrounded by the suppression of blacks by whites?? That is NOT the ONLY struggle black HUMAN beings face, trying to get “approval” in a world that is “viewed” as white based. People are SO focused on getting approval by whites that they forget BLACKS HAVE OVERCOME AND ARE FREE but haven’t overcome themselves in terms of the way they think. You know we have a black president, a black BILLIONAIRE, black MILLIONAIRES, black OSCAR WINNERS etc. What do ALL of them have in common?? They OVERCAME the black communities reinforced stereotypes, poor way of thinking, GOT EDUCATED in their fields of choice, TALK AND WALK with intelligence and integrity to have a DIFFERENT story to tell. Why can’t we see THAT from the black people in Hollywood now?? See THAT struggle to success for inspiration. Not 50 Cents “Get Rich or Die Tryin” movie…

        TI’s movie ATL had a really interesting character “Aaron” (TI’s rich girlfriend) that showed a PERFECT example of how black people keep EACH OTHER down the most. Her father, a successful politician or whatever he was, raised her in a good home, private schools etc due to HIS hard work to overcome his environment. But the ONLY way for her to be accepted by her follow black people was to pretend to be “Nu-Nu” from across the tracks who couldn’t articulate words the way english was suppose to be spoken. Really?? Then they find out she’s rich and then guess what?? They SHUN her due to jealously. Granted she lied yes (would they accept her if she didn’t?), but do you think a white person would SHUN another white person if they found out their friend who pretended to be trailer trash like them, turned out to be the governors son or daughter but just didn’t want to be judged or used by people, so pretend to be less than he was for acceptance???? No, that’s a BLACK issue that we ignore.It’s “cool” to be ignorant and your trying to “be white” if your not.

  10. Grump July 24, 2014

    I’m black but I wasn’t raised in the USA. I live here now and as much as African Americans complain about racism they are a problem to themselves. Black people can’t be racist? Excuse for black folks to be completely hateful towards Whites/Majority without being held responsible. They complain about racism yet there is racism within their own community(Lightskin/darkskin, black on black crime e.t.c), there is racism against other races(#whitetwitter, #stopwhitepeople) and as much as you don’t want to own up to it calling it prejudice, degrading another race is in fact RACISM. Instead of focusing of the bad and negative why don’t we as a people improve ourselves, stop using the N word and focus on movies that unite us as humans rather than focusing on what separates us? My opinion.

    • Tyler July 24, 2014

      That’s false! In order to be “racist” you have to have a substantial amount of power. As a whole, black people have none. They are the oppressed. They’re oppressors however i.e. white people, are powerful enough to establish laws and have tactics to prevent people of color from getting ahead in life. Thus, no, black people aren’t racist. Like Tits McGee said, they might be prejudice or feel some sort of animosity towards whites, with understandable reason might I add, but not racist.

      • ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) July 24, 2014

        @Tyler that mentality right there is why blacks thinks it’s ok to call a white person a cracker but get TOTALLY offended when a white person says n*gger. So stupid and illogical! “In order to be a racist you have to be in a position of power???” So you see BLACKS as less powerful than whites? Is Obama they only black person able to be deemed a “racist” against whites??? C*** foolery thinking at its best to once again have an excuse for ignorance…See YOU VIEW yourself as LESS with THAT mentality…. *rolls eyes*

      • ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) July 24, 2014

        @Tyler it’s APPALLING that you truly believe the way you do, STILL think blacks HAVE LESS or ARE LESS! NO, what white’s have is an EDUCATION (WHICH IS ACCESSIBLE TO THOSE WHO WANT IT) which ENABLES them to MOVE into positions of power to change the way laws are written if need be. Do you think Shaqwanna is focused on getting into harvard to change laws like Rachel is with her PARENTS (where it starts) who are at home encouraging her and feeding her the tools she needs to succeed? Oh ok…Yeah, white people really made Shaqwanna get pregnant at 16 and again at 17…But it’s the white mans fault why she chose not to go college or finish high school to raise kids with unknown fathers and is now below the poverty line….I say that as that’s an EXCUSE your trying to make and stereotype black people endorse and keep alive by accepting it as OK.

      • ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) July 24, 2014

        @Grump THANK YOU for being a logical and intelligent thinker who understands the importance of accountability and LACK THERE OF in the black community…Black people think if they continue this view of “struggle” they can continue to get by on making excuses for their poor choices, ways of thinking, lack of education, and lack of wanting to better themselves as a whole…They can continue to blame others for their issues created by “themselves” in their communities..

      • Grump July 24, 2014

        “belief in racial superiority:the belief that people of different races have different qualities and abilities, and that some races are inherently superior or inferior”. That is the definition of racism. It’s belief of superiority and I guess from your statement I can see you think black people are inferior to whites? I guess it’s a thing of the mind. I was raised in Nigeria and England and moving to the US I see myself as an equal. Second definition says “animosity toward other races:prejudice or animosity against people who belong to other races”, so as far as you’re degrading someone if a different race you’ are being racist. I can understand your point if view doe but that just worsens everything and makes nothing better.

  11. Dossome July 24, 2014

    Blacks are their own worst enemies tbh..Take for instance in music.We had Whitney Houston,a beautiful,dark skinned lady who was slaying every single b**** in the game and guess what,it was blacks who booed her at the Soul Train Awards for “making music that’s not black”.I mean wtf?What kind of music should blacks make?It’s even worse in todays market that one is considered a “sell-out” for doing other genres like EDM,Dance etc.Why do we limit ourselves when we can do more?If ratchet RNB,urban pop is what blacks should do in 2014,then we’re doomed,Because looking back,the efforts made by Donna Summer,Tina Turner,Sade,Whitney,Lenny Kravitz,Prince,Michael,Teddy Riley etc where blacks were allowed freedom to test their artistry and broaden their horizons have gone to waste

    I am really tired of people who oversimplify things.
    Why would a white person feel as bad for being called
    a cracker as a black person with n igger?

    Do you know cracker is used as a term for power?
    The reason it is said is because slave masters(more power),
    used to crack the whip on their black slaves!

    N***** was used as a disrespect to the people
    of Niger, brought into slavery.

    Some of you need to read a book.

    Write all the sermons you want. Things are not equal.
    So keep acting like you are blind to the facts.

    • Grump July 24, 2014

      Nobody ever said things where equal. They can never be. In Nigeria where EVERYONE is black there is still no equality, other tribes beleive they better than some others. African Americans will just rather focus on disadvantages and blame them for their current misfortunes than use the advantages they have to better themselves. I don’t know how you feel but I am equal and I feel equal and that’s all that matters

      • tits mcgee July 24, 2014

        I get the spirit of what your saying. In that
        regard of course I ‘feel’ equal otherwise, I
        would never get up and achieve what I have
        in my life .

        That feeling aside like you pointed out,
        will probably never make things even stevens.

        I won’t be held back, because I demand better
        for myself. We all can!!

        My point was that complete equality, may never
        be possible, but we can never stop fighting
        towards that goal!

    ^but you are also overcomplicating things @tits…All we’re saying is WE should learn to treat ourselves the way we’d like others to treat us

    • tits mcgee July 24, 2014

      I am not saying that. I am saying to treat everyone
      fairly, BUT to be aware of what has and is being
      propagated about us.

      I shouldn’t have to fain ignorance in order to get along.

      My point was about power structure, not
      about espousing hate or blame.

      I gave a definition of a term, and people assumed
      my intentions.

      I can be aware and still function as a human being
      without animosity…

    Everyone who is talking about the light skin vs. dark skin thing is not talking about where it comes from and how it is still being perpetuated today. Willie Lynch set it up and still today when you look at a commercial and it has a black woman starring in it how does she look? Light skin, light eyes, and curly hair. They really don’t care about the difference in skin tone of black people Look at the NWA movie casting call done by a white casting company that glorifies lighter skinned women and degrades darker ones.

    And another thing n***** and cracker do not carry the same weight. I am from Florida and we have this place called the Silver River museum and they tell you about the crackers back in the day. They g0t he name cracker from the sound that the whip made when they popped it and were described as people who worked hard all day long. Being referenced to as someone who works hard all day long and then being referenced to something that means you are less than human does not match. There has not been one single person who has been oppressed by the word cracker.

    Ima say this and then I’m done because those who want to see the glass have empty always will. I’m 22 with a paid for BMW, my own place, a bachelors degrees in my chosen field and working on my graduates degree, workin in my CAREER not a job, travel for work often, everything is paid for and have always been one of three or four brown skin people at my jobs (previous) and now as well as the schools I went to, including college. Guess what, no ones held me back from achieving my goals…and I never THOUGHT anyone could either, and that mind set has always worked for me. :/

      Well bless your soul. It’s all about the mindset, I guess everyone wasn’t raised the same.

    Comprehension skills are at an all time low.
    Defining two terms, turned into people, assuming
    how people live their lives. Lol.

    I don’t feel the need to qualify my life, or success
    in an open forum.

    I just gave a very real definition of terms,
    the sanctimonious moralization from some
    of you is just so insipid.

    • ENOUGH ONIKA July 24, 2014

      But why do you feel every post is in response to your comment? We get it, you want to “define” the word racism. Prejudice, racism interchangeable in my book if it’s based on skin color or ethnicity. It all comes down to the origin which is HATE, and deeper than that is IGNORANCE. *rolls eyes*

    • ENOUGH ONIKA July 24, 2014

      And I shared my life because I love to tell me testimony to those who still think others are holding them back because of their skin color

  21. tits mcgee July 24, 2014

    Hun for the record you addressed me! If you
    feel some type of way about my comments,
    I wrote in general, that is your issue.

    Clearly you do because you wrote ‘one last thing’
    2 posts ago, and here your pressed as s is again.

    You still apparently can’t read. I said the difference
    between the terms is POWER not skin color.

    You are the one writing dissertations about people being
    back by the ‘man’. No one was going there but you
    And @grump.

    I defined 2 words and you got all in your feelings,
    Writing manuscripts.

    I still appreciate the dialogue. It’s all good.
