‘Dear White People’ Season 3’s Got A Release Date
By Lorenzo S.
It’s the battle between Good vs. Evil. Light vs. Dark. Salty Grits vs. Sugary Grits. The hit Netflix show ‘Dear White People’ inspired by Justin Simien’s feature-length film of the same name announced the premiere date of the third season of their comedy-drama (August 2nd) on June 19th, or Juneteenth as it’s known by Black Americans. The story takes place on a fictional modern style Ivy League college campus, where the students of color navigate the predominantly white institution in the age where stories about social injustices like racial discrimination can be shared with billions with just a tap.
Netflix made the announcement earlier today with the help of several DWP cast members in a very Buzzfeed-esque video to see what type of grits are the best, a debate that has been going on for decades in the black community. Thanks to the demographic of black Twitter users dubbed “Black Twitter,” this debate has been inflated to hysterical levels:
At the end of season 2, black students Sam White and Lionel Higgins (played by Logan Browning and DeRon Horton, respectively) stumble across the Order of X, a secret society that existed within the college long before their time there.
Will the Order of X help them fight back against the school’s oppressive leaders? Tune in on August 2nd to find out.
