'Dear White People' trailer fans flames of America’s racial divide, as expected

RT reports:
The teaser trailer for the latest Netflix show ‘Dear White People’ has sparked outrage on social media, leading many users to cancel their subscriptions to the streaming service in protest of what they feel is a “racist” series.

The series is based on a 2014 film of the same name, which won the US Dramatic Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Talent at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival without creating much uproar.

The film and the series detail the exploits of Samantha White, an outspoken biracial film major at a fictional prestigious university, whose radio show and self-published book criticize racial transgressions both in academia and wider society.
No word yet on whether Netflix will be doing a series call "Dear Section 8ers".
