“Dear White People” The TrueSlamBook Re-cap
Last night I had the chance to finally see “Dear White People.”
According to the story line via IMDB: “Dear White People” is “A social satire that follows the stories of four black students at an Ivy League college where controversy breaks out over a popular but offensive black-face party thrown by white students. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, the film explores racial identity in acutely-not-post-racial America while weaving a universal story of forging one’s unique path in the world. Written by Anonymous“
Tessa Thompson plays the bi-racial, good hair, girl who uses racial equality to hide her vulnerability and shortcomings. She portrays the role of a Sistah Souljah type when in all actuality she is India Arie.
Through her character ‘Sam’ you get the chance to see some of the issues minorities face every day from a perspective that provides a comedic relief yet still causes you to face reality. Tessa truly played this role and provided us the viewer to live through her antics and socially driven politics.
Brandon P. Bell plays a character by the name of Troy. Now first off as you can see Brandon is FINE in the NAME. Then on top of that every outfit he wore was sculpted like the designer made it for his body. Lastly, every time he hit the screen my juice box began to flow. Haaaaaaaaaaay Brandon.
Of course with his good comes the bad. Troy is the uncle Tome student with Daddy issues. He is afraid to do what he wants to do and is living the life his daddy has outlined for him. His ole weak ass then had the nerve to be dating a white girl named Sofia, played by Brittany Curran, who is the daughter of his dads arch nemesis. It makes for a great storyline until CoCo gets in the mix…… #Oop
CoCo, played by Teyonah Parris is the BouGhetto black girl fro the SouthSide who swears she doesn’t fit in with the other black students. This weave wearing, blue eyed poppin, Prada Bag toten Diva refuses to accept the fact that she is brown skinned. Dark brown at that. She aggravates me through the whole movie and I wanna jump through the screen and beat her wanna be celeb-reality start face ass. Nevertheless, she redeems herself for me when she checks the shytt out of Troy at the end of the movie.
Yes bytch, it was that kinda checkmate.
Tyler James with his ole Everybody Hates Chris face ass shows us a side of him we have never seen. We all know he is a great comedic actor, nut in this film Lionel is a whole different type of character. The low self-esteem, too white to be black type of boy is intimidated by his peers as he isn’t ‘Down’ enough. LoL! Finally in the end he gets Mad and goes in on that #IkeTurnUp status. You know soon as he got mad I got happy. You know I loves me a man with anger issues. LoL.
Chile, when Sam pulls out this camera in the film I broke out crying. Who’s Grandmothers Grandmother had that camera sitting in the addict looking like it runs on 35mm film by Fuji…… LoL
All in All, the Cast was Amazing.
The Film was Phenomenal.
And, we will be buying it on DVD and Blue-Ray……….. -TSB
Sooooo, Do You feel for @RayRice27 or Nah??? You know I got something to Say!
Listen! You know I try to stay out of peoples business! But, every now and again I must say a lil sumtin. Babeeeeeeeeeee, I have no Idea what caused it but we ALL see the Result!
In case you have been under a rock, catch up! Ray Rice hits his at the time Fiance’ with a #TKO in the Name of Holyfield, Tyson, and Mayweather!!!! No Shade, but it was a Blow of All Blows.
Before I begin! Here is the Video, courtesy of TMZ: (Brace Yourself)
Now, after you gather your thoughts, lets Talk! I don’t know what lil mamas did, but the way he womped her and she hit the rail lawd have MERCY! Poor Baby! Then she out cold like a Rag Doll. He tryna get her shoes and drag her out.
I don’t know who the Security Guard was who stood there, he could have at least help sit her sleep ass up on the wall! #IJS
After this, a few months back Ray released an Apology (via: Perez Hilton Online) for his actions. As a result he received a 2 Game Suspension…… Well, clearly this was before the video got leaked! Now with the Video leaked, he has been Dropped from the Baltimore Ravens and Suspended Indefinitely from the NFL.
I mean like, so like, basically like! What you iz sayin is that when it was all quiet and the Public wasn’t aware of the Severity you wanted to Sweep it under the Rug! Now that it’s VIRAL for the WORLD to see, now you wanna take a Stance!!!!! Chile Booh…. All youz guys be beating your Girlfriends, Wives, Fiance’, and Side Chicks and just Pray for Goodness it stays Quiet!
Now, #TrueTea time. I know Ray through a mutual friend and he is a very genuine, fun going individual! No one paid me to say that, i’m being HONEST! I hate to admit, but I feel bad for him.
We don’t know what was said, nor do we know how “Hard” her hit was. Granted we can assume it wasn’t as hard as his, but #TrueTea in the Heat of the Moment if a bytch need to be hit, you hit her. She knew her Limits and his Temper so don’t wanna play all Victim now cuz the World somewhat feel sorry for your Kitten Heel Wearin Ass!!!!!!! #NoShade, you seen them Kitten Heels!
To: Ray Rice! If you read this, know that I feel bad for you! I feel they are going to use you as an example because of your Race, Rank, and Celeb-izm. I don’t condone you hittin lil Tu-Tu, but I can understand that during an intense moment things happen.
Though, nothing can excuse Domestic Violence, all you had to do was SHAKE THE SHYTT outta her, and mess that Wet Wrap up and she would have been fine! Nevertheless, what’s done is done and we can’t take it back. Michael Vick came back from his lil Dog Fighting matter, and Chris Brown came back from beating Ri-Ri, I think you will be fine.
Learn from this, and move forward. Whatever you do, don’t go to no WEAK ASS Team. If it gets that bad just Retire and go hide. You Ballin anyways!!!!!! -TSB
