Most discussions about racism don't lead to laughter, but Netflix's upcoming TV series "Dear White People" manages to tie in plenty of humor.
The streamer dropped a new trailer Thursday, and it highlights the prevalence of everyday racism with hilarious yet realistic situations. Like the 2014 film it's based on, the show is set at a predominantly white Ivy League college and follows several students of color who confront racism in various ways. We see plenty of examples throughout the preview, from conversations about slavery to a white student being shocked that a party with blackface would still happen in 2017.
While racial justice is clearly a central theme of "Dear White People," the issue isn't the only one explored. The Justin Simien-created show also looks at the college experience, young adulthood, sexuality, and more. Based on the trailer, we expect them all to be tackled with wit and compelling storylines.
Watch the full trailer below.
"Dear White People" comes to Netflix on April 28.
