- “This paper is independent of Winchester because it's paid for by its founders, the Hancocks.”
- —Silvio Romo to Lionel Higgins
The Independent, or the Indepedent Observer, is one of the college newspaper outlets in the Netflix series Dear White People. It was primarily lead and operated by Silvio.
The Winchester Indenpendent became popularly known by the students at Winchester University when Douglas Hancock reported on the status of Armstrong-Parker House.
Upon publication that exposed the Hancocks being bigots, the paper was abruptly shut down.
