Identity politics costs liberals countless elections (the most recent, and significant, being the Presidency), but apparently businesses think they can make it work for them.
MTV celebrated the end of their 30th year of no longer being cool by releasing a video called, New Years Resolutions for White People, which is just as condescending and racist as you’d think.
MTV eventually removed the video from their YouTube channel due to the immense backlash. Just take a look at the like/dislike ratio on any re-uploads of the video, and it’s clear just how one-sided the opinions of the video were.
So, you’d think others in the entertainment space would’ve learned a lesson from MTV’s screw up, right?
The trailer is below…if you have the stomach for it. It takes fewer than 10 seconds until we get a lecture on the “horrors” of cultural appropriation.
“Dear white people, here’s a list of acceptable Halloween costumes; pirates, slutty nurses, any of our first 43 presidents. Top of the list of unacceptable costumes; ME,” the trailer begins.
If that’s what Netflix chose to show us as their teaser for the series, expect the show to consist of millennials complaining about trivial problems like offensive Halloween costumes, cultural appropriation, micro-aggression, and other non-issues that hysterical progressives are desperate to make into civil rights issues.
The intro to the series has been about as well received as MTV’s cringetastic video.
On Twitter, many are announcing they’ll canceling their Netflix subscriptions in response. Overall, the social media feedback is overwhelmingly negative.
Netflix announced a new anti-white show (Dear White People) that promotes white genocide.

Race-baiting hasn’t been working for Democrats. What makes the entertainment industry think it’s going to work for them?
