“Why did I name it “Dear White People?”
Svetlana Voreskova

My guess is that he chose an inflammatory title for publicity reasons.

The same reason why he’s now whoring for attention by posting this dreary ‘Woe is me!’ screed, placing his (well deserved) embarrassment at the hands of some internet trolls into some continuum alongside Selma and Little Rock (One wonders why he omitted Emmitt Till from his litany oppression — given the rest of the thing, we can certainly eliminate humility or brevity as motivations).

But hey, can’t fault him for using what obviously works — he got Netflix to pony up some cash as well as access to their distribution stream.

Amazing how identity-themed victimology has become such a popular film/literary genre but not surprising given our solipsistic culture.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
