DEAR WHITE PEOPLE: Please explain why THIS ONE ever became famous.

Happy Halloween and welcome back for yet another PROTIP Phriday! We’re on the verge of our one-month anniversary here at GotDegrees, and after having the privilege of watching Dear White People on the last PP, I felt inspired by the main character Samantha White’s radio show that provides Whites on her campus with tips on dealing with Black students and engaging with Black culture.

Thank God for PROTIP Phriday! I didn’t end up collapsing from exhaustion like I thought I would this week- so here I am with another set of PROTIPS- and with the bullshit I’ve had to endure since our last PP (most notably campus crises like the upended vending machine above), I’ve had A LOT of inspiration for this post.
