Dear White People is the college radio show of Samantha White on the Netflix series Dear White People. The controversies surrounding the title and content of the show are a driving factor in many important plot points and conflicts. Sam's purpose in creating the show was to point out both major and minor racist incidents on campus.
The show is popular enough to draw criticism from the humor/satire publication Pastiche.
- "'Dear White People' is a misnomer. My show is meant to articulate the feelings of a misrepresented group outside the majority."
