Donald Trump should hunker down and binge watch Netflix’s Dear White People — he could learn a thing or two.

DWP follows a group of Black students at an Ivy League college dealing with race relations and social issues. What makes the show compelling, however, is the easily digestible and more often than not, humorous dialogue.

“I want to give you a little distance because if it gets too real we don’t necessarily want to talk about these things,” creator Justin Simeien told HipHollywood while on the red carpet of the series premiere. “I want to keep it at a little bit of a hyper-reality so we can really go to those places and not feel like you’re being preached at.”

HipHollywood can confirm that the show, which tackles issues like homosexuality, interracial relationships and just simply, white privilege, wrapped the day Trump was voted into the Oval. “If that’s not a haunting situation for you right there,” actor Brandon Black told us. “We had to pretend like that wasn’t happening to finish the show.”

As for the meaning of Dear White People, the program’s star Logan Browning revealed to us it’s about the idea of “young people” using their “voices because they are important, they are the future.”

Dear White People is streaming now on Netflix.

Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
