Skip to comments.Dear White People' opens dialogue through humor

Dear white people: It's not OK to throw a black-themed party where white students wear racist costumes and drink from cups that look like watermelons, especially to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Justin Simien, the writer and director behind the comedy "Dear White People," doesn't have to look far to illustrate how his movie parallels real life.

He died a soldier: World War II vet killed in beating tried to fend off attackers, cops say Delbert (Shorty) Belton, 88, tried to fight back when two teens attacked him in a Spokane, Washington, parking lot, police said. One suspect, Kenan Adams-Kinard, 16, was waiting Tuesday to be arraigned on first-degree murder charges. His alleged accomplice, 16-year-old Demetrius Glenn, is being held in lieu of $2 million bond.

Dear Black “folks”:
It is not okay for you to act like I owe you something. I don’t owe you shit.
White Guy aka “Crazy Ass Cracker”
I invite any and all offended black people to be rednecks.
Dear non-Irish-American people: It's not OK to throw an Irish-themed party where non-Irish-American students wear racist costumes and drink green beer from cups festooned with shamrocks, especially to commemorate St. Patrick's Day.So, dear "black" people: get over yourself and shut up.
The freedom to throw tasteless parties is enshrined in the Constitution.
So, dear offended black people, stuff it. Feel free to throw a redneck party. I might even come if the barbecue is good enough.
Because to commit fewer would be... well... too WHITE of them!
This is a f-ng joke, right?
Was 'Monkay' already taken?
Man, I was puzzling about something similar this morning.
Seems to me these black folks are trying to mirror what they see as “white pride” (which is actually doing things more like God wanted them done in the first place) and doing it as “black pride.” Which of course is a step into the ghetto dominated, moral void!
If we have to have pride, maybe we should have “people pride.” Nobody is left out. After all God did make people in His image... no matter what color they are... so He has rights to boast on them, wouldn’t you think... the problem is that way too often we don’t act in accordance! (We otherwise call it sin.)
Sometimes it seems like their rhetoric is designed to make the white man sorry he ever enslaved them, and their actions designed to make him sorry he ever freed them.
Well that’s a perfect rhyme with the devil’s game.
Come to realize it, it IS the devil’s game. The bible told us so.
I think we take such things way too seriously sometimes. If Whitey laughed at such things, Blackey might get mad at first, but then would collect his dignity and the game would soon end.
In other words I think the Crackers have a right to be Crazy Ass... not murder crazy or malice crazy, but hey, get a big ole redneck yeehaw on and don’t care about color! (And do tell the “Niggas” they are free to join whenever they wish, we will not discriminate unlike them.)
Dear Black People,
If I can put up with it on St Paddy’s Day you can put up with it on MLK Day. :-)
Why yes... everyone’s Irish, then everyone’s black, then everyone’s redneck. And we get to enjoy the best of each one’s world. Win-win all around.
It’s actually worse than those numbers would make it appear.
The percentage of the black population committing those 50% of the murders is actually much smaller than 12%. They’re predominantly committed by young men. Eliminating women takes it down to about 6%. Eliminating the male children (real children, not gangbanger teens) and the elderly men brings the percentage of the population much closer to 4% or less.
Dear Black People: Beating people up is not okay, robbing liquor stores is not okay...
I wonder if the black folks are feeling put down by seeing the white folks party a la black and actually having FUN. You know, it’s possible to do it without a Frito Lay factory on your shoulder, don’tcha?
And yeah. We ought to invite them to have some redneck parties. Then they can observe who complains (nobody!!)
Dear black people and all other people who get offended easily: being offended is a sign of weakness. You can stop being weak now.
I’m Irish and Redneck. Thats diversity. :-)
And again if someone tries to enslave you to feel morally responsible for their own nonsense... well if reasoning won’t work then laugh it off. Smile, knowing you tried your best to be kind, and it’s not your fault they’re characterizing you as Beelzebub’s brother.
They have hollowed themselves out by saying no to God. You can certainly point towards heaven and say hey, there’s our strength, there is no excuse for you not making it yours too.
The not-so-clever “it’s code” tactic is meant to stifle speech, to repress criticism, to emasculate the civil White voice, etc.
Simien is a clown.
they say the movie opens a dialogue? So who hasnt been talking already?
This tendency towards PRESUMPTUOUSNESS is growing by the day.
anything uttered in the service of reframing REALITY is acceptable to this type.
open letter to these presumptuous race conscious dopes.
WE HAVE A BLACK PRESIDENT PEOPLE bet a life
Dear Sane People....please have patience with these schlubs as we’re better than to get tangled up in their web of NONSENSE
It’s not ok to play the polar bear game or the knock out game or to assume you can steal from me with impunity because I am white and I owe something.
Then he was reelected because they thought
since he is “black” he needs more time because
deep down they believe “blacks “ are inferior.
People will come up with a long list of excuses but the reality is most black dysfunction is rooted in an inferiority complex and envy coupled with a rejection of “white” western civilization which is synonymous with Judeo-Christian values. Now they are regressing to tribal raids under cover of PC culture that is using them as fodder & “useful idiots” for lawlessness. This insane, immature, genocidal lunacy is a twisted psychodrama projected onto society through all Godless politically correct avenues will only end in genocide and in levels worse than evidenced in the 20th century. So sad.
People Get Ready there’s a train a’ comin.
PS...considering all the free crap you get that we pay for, a "thank you" might be nice once in a while.
Signed...Whitey McPolar Bear
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Justin Simien needs to lighten up: pun intended, and be glad his peeps are either too ignorant or too polite to bring up the irony . Justins last name Simien is oh so very close to the word Simian which means MONKEY. Is this a real person? Either way its amusing. That type of person would squeal like a stuck pig if some college girl wrote Dear Black People letter.
Dang I really need glasses. I thought the heading of this thread said “Dead White People”. Need to make an appointment =)
“The not-so-clever its code tactic is meant to stifle speech, to repress criticism, to emasculate the civil White voice, etc.”
Absolutely; at this point nobody is listening to them any more anyway. Both parties have agreed we’re better off with an imported Hispanic underclass instead of the perpetual whiners, and the transition is well underway.
I have many many comments, but choose not to. However, you are free to let your imagination run wild.
I do not for a second disbelieve the 50% number (hell, it may be higher), but that 12% number needs to be clarified. No doubt, almost all of those doing the murdering are male, and given a roughly 50%-50% breakdown in the sexes of the race, wouldn't that statement be better presented as: "6% of the population committing 50% of the murders?"
Re your post 18, I did not see that before I posted something similar (post 38). But I see you did a better job of refining the analysis.
I don’t know that I did a particularly better job. I just added a couple of extra qualifiers to the mix.
We know that the “50% of the murders” rate is accurate from FBI crime stats. Whether they’re being committed by 3%, 4%, or 6% of the total population, that ratio is horrendous.
