•Dear White People• Haiku Review

Saw “Dear White People”/
An interesting film/
Provoked some thinking/

Impulse was perfect/
Execution uneven:/
Some great film making/

The deconstruction/
Of privilege was perfect/
On both sides of race/

At the same moment/
Race was remade and unmade/

The sterling writing/
Couldn’t escape the archetypes/
Make real characters/

The stereotypes/
Of villains didn’t bother/
Flat protagonists/

At the same moment/
“Types” were dissected it showed/
Additional “types”/

Identified “types”/
Though both clever & witty/
Just couldn’t escape/
