Dear White People...

Here's some things you should know.

Published May 11, 2017

Not only is the new Dear White People Netflix series hilarious, but it’s full of major keys. In fact, it inspired us to come up with our own list of things we feel white people need to know, and questions that personally, we are tired of answering. 

  1. No, all Black people do not know each other

    Please don't play the name game with me because you knew someone Black somewhere once. 

  2. No, you will never 'be as tan as me' in the summer

    Because if you actually had brown skin, that would mean losing all your privilege, honey. 

  3. This is a weave, boo. No, it did not grow over the weekend.

    Oh, is it only cute when Kylie does it? 

  4. No, you cannot touch it

    via GIPHY

    Still no. 

  5. Yes, my butt is real

    via GIPHY

    OK fine, this depends on who you ask. 

  6. No, you can’t touch that either

    via GIPHY

    Deff no butt stuff though. 

  7. Yes, I have to use sunscreen, too

    via GIPHY

    Guess what? UV rays are universally dangerous. 

  8. These are cornrows, not 'boxer braids,' smh

    via GIPHY

    And let's just agree that if you think this is a trend, you should skip it all together. 

  9. Don’t flip your hair in my face. It’s rude af.

    Since you won't like it if I do it when I have 30 inches of Remy magic. 

  10. Reverse racism is not a thing

    via GIPHY

    Please Lord, don't let us have to explain this again

  11. Saying you’re colorblind just means you are great at ignoring my existence

    via GIPHY

    Acknowledging a difference does not make you racist. 

  12. No, I don’t speak for all Black people

    via GIPHY

    Just like Donald Trump doesn't speak for you (at least we hope). 

  13. Timberlands are not a new trend

    via GIPHY

    Ask literally anyone. 

  14. No one cares about your so-called dreads

    via GIPHY

    But we guess you can live. 

  15. No matter how much you curl and tease your hair, you cannot have an Afro

    via GIPHY

    Don't try it. 

  16. Rachel Dolezal is your homegirl, not mine

    via GIPHY

    Take her back, ASAP. 

  17. No one wants to see you 'twerk'

    via GIPHY

    Just, no. 

  18. Could you please stop ruining our words?

    via GIPHY

    And we are going to need: fly, shook and lit. 

  19. Dating someone Black does not make you Black

    via GIPHY

    Also, people are not trophies. 

  20. No, you may not shorten my name to make it easier on yourself

    via GIPHY

    I said what I said. 

  21. It’s not my job to educate you on the impact of White supremacy

    via GIPHY

    Educate your damn self. 

  22. No, you cannot say the n-word, ever. No exceptions.

    via GIPHY

    It is never acceptable.
