Group Info

A collection of narratives and visuals inspired by the film of the same name. Please refer to the IMDb page: www.imdb.com/title/tt2235108/


We also accept general art that depicts positive representation of people of colour, mixed-race people and other oppressed minorities (women and immigrants count).

This group will examine the following topics about that big concept called Race:

:bulletblack: Race as a Social Construct
:bulletblack: Colourlines
:bulletblack: How we define ourselves (''What is race?'')
:bulletblack: Racism
:bulletblack: Colour blindness
:bulletblack: White privilege (''Does it exist?'')
:bulletblack: The model minority myth
:bulletblack: The myth of meritocracy

...And many many more...

:bulletred:GROUP RULES:bulletred:

:: Please ONLY submit art that's on topic (refer to the above list to judge what's appropriate for this group)::

:bulletgreen: Any and all art depicting people of colour POSITIVELY is welcome.
:bulletgreen: Any and all art depicting diversity POSITIVELY is welcome.
:bulletgreen: Political art is welcome ONLY if it stays on-topic with the group and does not purposely attack anyone.
:bulletgreen: Your piece must contain at least ONE person of colour. Again, we allow art featuring white people ONLY if there is at least one person of colour in your piece (for example, artwork depicting interracial relationships).

***If you have questions about whether your piece is appropriate or not, feel free to shoot the group a note.***

DO NOT SUBMIT THE FOLLOWING:

:bulletpurple: Hate art
:bulletpurple: Pornography of any kind.
:bulletpurple: Work that depicts whites only. This is not an intended attack on white people, but it would defeat the purpose of the group. Again, your piece must contain at least one person of colour in order to be accepted. Our mission is celebrating diversity and inclusivity. All colours are welcome but our group's focus is not on white-only art. United colours is highly encouraged. :)
(Ex: www.deviantart.com/crazycrazyl…)

:star:FAQ::star:

WHO CAN JOIN?
:bulletorange: Anyone and everyone of all races is welcome! You do NOT have to be a person of colour to join our group. We would love to have you, regardless of who you are and where you come from!

ISN'T THIS GROUP DISCRIMINATORY AND RACIST?
:bulletorange: Again, we do not ban white people from joining our group. Anyone is free to create art, join in discussions or watch us-- this is a safe haven for everyone to partake in inclusivity. We are by no means an anti-white group-- now that would be petty and bigoted, wouldn't it?-- but we're sort of like BlackArtSociety, except we include artwork of all people of colour, not just black people. I realised in my long search in deviantART groups that the site has many groups focused purely on Black Art--which is great-- but lacks a group for all kinds of people of colour to mingle in one place. Don't be discouraged from joining us-- as long as you love to celebrate the beauty of other cultures. Again, white people are totally allowed to be depicted in any group submissions as long as you include a person of colour.

WHAT AM I ALLOWED TO SUBMIT?
:bulletorange: I can't stress this enough because members seem to constantly ignore this very simple rule, but we only accept art of people of colour-- meaning anyone who is non-white. If you have artwork that only depicts white people, this is not the group for you. There are plenty of other groups out there that will accept your beautiful deviations. But unless you contribute artwork of people of colour, this probably isn't the place for you.

WARNING: Please follow these simple rules. Failure to do so will result in your submission being denied, or a possible removal from the group! The moderator reserves the right to remove art at any time, without warning, and block users who are repeated offenders.

Dear White People, the minimum requirement of black friends needed to not be racist has just been raised to 2. Sorry, but your weed man, Tyrone, does not count.”
— Sam White, Dear White People
The Sundance award–winning film “Dear White People”
Marking the debut of director Justin Simien, exami


Excerpt:

Marking the debut of director Justin Simien, examines the question of race and racism in post–Obama America through a satirical lens. The goal of the film is to use humor to start a conversation about the construction and perception of racial identity. We follow the journey of four black students attending a fictional Ivy League college as they struggle to answer the question of what ''being black'' in this day and age means and how that defines not only who they are, but who they are seen as being... The humor in Dear White People is often sharp, seeking to expose the covert vehicles of racism that continue to propel it forward.

The media is called out for its perpetuation of a cliched black culture black American stereotypes. It mocks Hollywood's creation of ''movies for everyone,'' but a separate genre of black movies just for black people.


Dear White People pushes no racial agenda, instead focusing intensely on cultural identity.

Dear White People adds a welcome new voice to cinema's oft-neglected discussion of race, tackling its timely themes with intelligence, honesty, and gratifyingly sharp wit.

This group is really interesting! There's a lot of groups out there like this but they're mainly for black people and not the other races not to mention this group actually has positive discussions about race rather than just being art collection. Nice group!
