'Dear White People': Racist Diatribe or Sharp Satire?

'Dear White People': Racist Diatribe or Sharp Satire?

In Episode 45 of the Crooked Table Podcast, Rob reviews a pair of recent Emma Watson releases in Disney's live-action Beauty and the Beast remake and techno-thriller The Circle, co-starring Tom Hanks, Patton Oswalt and John Boyega. Then, he addresses the controversy surrounding the new Netflix series Dear White People, based on the 2014 film of the same name. Is this series adaptation of Justin Simien's film an exercise in racism or a satire intended to open up a larger conversation? Let's chat it out. We’re excited to hear your feedback as the show continues to evolve. As usual, the podcast does feature explicit language and, as such, is best considered NSFW. Thanks for listening!
