Is there a true story behind dear white people?
‘Dear White People’ is partly based on a true story. Simien’s title was inspired by a friend’s informal communication about black cultural components that were picked up and dumped as trends by mostly white populations. The title, which is also the name of the controversial radio show broadcast by the show’s biracial protagonist and film student Sam, highlights how black children in America struggle to define themselves in the face of opposing perspectives from both their communities and the dominant white population.
Simien’s experience as an openly gay man well-versed in queer online culture forms the basis for the show’s exploration of queer society. Mainly seen through Lionel’s eyes, a young gay journalism student. Simien was able to develop characters who strongly adhere to their diverse ideas while dealing with love, education, activism and politics by delving into different facets of his own personality.
The protagonists in “Dear White People” are not without guilt, navigating a modern world that insists on seeing no color while still engaging in casual racism. They are forced to face their own harmful prejudices about black and white identities.
