This week on my TV show recommendations, I would like to introduce my readers to the Netflix Original series, Dear White People. This show is so fantastic that I finished it the same day it premiered.

Created by writer/director Justin Simien, Dear White People stars Logan Browning as Samantha White,  a student at the Ivy League college, Winchester University. White hosts a controversial radio show “Dear White People,” where she points out the many racist occurrences on campus, much to the annoyance of her white classmates. This brilliant show stars a slew of  up and coming talent such as, Brandon P. Bell, Deron Horton, Antoinette Robertson, John Patrick Amedori, and many famous guest stars.

I have always been a fan of satire, and this show delivers it in spades. An episodic version of a movie of the same name,  which came out my freshman year of college, this show could not be any more relevant.  It tackles social issues in a fresh, inventive and hilarious way. You’ll find yourselves laughing hysterically moments before examining your own social qualms. This was a great watch. I highly recommend it.
