Dear White People…

Not sure what yet another film is going to do to salve or clarify race relations in the US. But – a young brother wants to get into the film business… Which is progress. And I think he’s got some talent.

This one by Justin Smith.

The Birth Of ‘Dear White People’

Perhaps it was being mistaken for the one other Black guy in my office by a colleague who had worked with him for years… Or perhaps it was being asked repeatedly by co-workers to teach them the Single Ladies Dance? Either way something provoked me to go on Twitter as @DearWhitePeople two years ago and start tweeting things like:

“Dear White People. The single ladies dance is dead. Please turn off your web cams and go on about your lives.”

Meant to articulate the sometimes funny, mostly harmless, but occasionally painful experience of being a Black face in a vastly white place (i.e. most Hollywood work environments) @DearWhitePeople also served an ulterior motive of mine.

I’d been working for some time on a satire about race identity. The feature script for Dear White People follows the events leading up to a race riot a prestigious predominately white university through the perspectives of four very different Black students. While the script was culled from my
own college experiences and those of others I knew, I wanted to test out the voice of my lead character, Sam White, whose radio show “Dear White People” gives the film its title.

Sam, a kind of amalgamation of Dap from School Daze and iconic activist Angela Davis had a lot to say and I wanted to know what resonated with people.

As I charged through several drafts of the script, feedback from the twitter account would make its way into the project. Tweets that asked how I would feel if there was a “Dear Black People” prompted responses such as:

“Dear White People, there’s no need for a Dear Black People. Reality
shows on VH1 and Bravo let us know exactly how you feel about us.” Read the rest of this entry »

Huntsman Daughters Parody Cain Commercial

The Jon2012Girls jump in with a parody of Herman Cain’s smoking video. Candidate Jon Huntsman’s daughters have posted a parody on YouTube hitting back at Cains ridiculous and pathetic ad.

No word yet on whether the Cain grandchildren will strike back.

Can the Huntsman girls burst Cain’s bubble? 

If policy speeches and retail campaigning don’t work, there are always fake mustaches and bubbles.

Eager to find its way into any story line, the Jon Huntsmancampaign is up with a new Web video parodying the viral Herman Cain spot featuring his smoke-blowing campaign manager.

It features three of Huntsman’s daughters — the “Jon2012girls” — wearing thick-rimmed eyeglasses and terrible, terrible fake mustaches in an attempt to mimic the bizarre Cain video.

“We strongly believe that our dad has the experience and proven track record to revive America’s economy and create jobs. Even if we didn’t believe that, we’d still have to be here,” says one of the girls.

It ends with the three girls blowing bubbles, not smoke as Mark Block did in his version. It also borrows Cain’s catchy campaign anthem.
