    So there is tis series on Netflix called Dear White People. I want to recommend this for the right given it portrays the black side of things from their point of view in a way that is understandable from outside that perspective. I think it is well acted, and well written. It is certainly written from a younger perspective being it happens in college so I had to focus on keeping up with some of the more modern terms. I don't think they were black terms as the show does do a good job of showing what things mean in that sense.

    I think the series does a good job of not getting into the extreme arguments for the most part, and they do present multiple views on how things could be handed. I found myself enjoying the characters and actually thinking about what is good and bad to do when they have an incident where campus security is called on a altercation and things go bad.

    This really gives a perspective of the different currents of politics and racism and how they push and pull people of color. Not to mention some really interesting looks at the GLBT mix, and even a nerd getting bullied for dressing up as geordi laforge, and how he was growing out of that high school thing into a world where he could be powerful.

    Oh my, there are three seasons. I am so late to the party. However, this series is a must for any person who is woke or wants to be,

    It's a pretty fun series, and relatable AF, having been a Coco for most of my life.
