Declared as a satire for the Obama generation, the film follows the fallout of four black students after white students at an Ivy League college throw an "African American" themed party. Student activist Samantha White (Tessa Thompson) makes waves when she creates a show called “Dear White People,” and runs for president of all-black residential hall Parker-Armstrong.

Meanwhile, Lionel Higgins (Tyler James Williams), who knows very little about black culture despite being black, finds himself in a difficult situation when he's put in charge of covering the racial controversy for the newspaper of the otherwise all-white school.
