The fact that Dear White People has such a low rating proves the point of the whole show

I really wanted to give the benefit of the doubt to this show. The title is telling you that this show is going to be about the wall in the society that is race. I guess it was my fault expecting something more than that. After having to sit through 30 minutes of a badly written, directed and acted episode, I realized that the creator of this show only wants to fuel the hatred in the black society. The show tries to do this by diminishing the white race. (You're in an Ivy League college, who fucking asks "What are you?" to a black person?) But I'm sure the limited target audience of this show will love it.

Although (I am sure) lots of things slipped my understanding firstly because I am white and secondly because I am European, I believe that shows like this one are extremely necessary for understanding others, changing ourselves and making society a better place.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
