The red band trailer for Dear White People used the N-word, a lot.

While the first trailer for DEAR WHITE PEOPLE definitely played up the racial divide on the fictional campus of Winchester University, but this new red band take drives the racism home. With the crux of the movie centered on a party with heavy stereotypical overtones, the new trailer also gives us some more flagrant uses of the forbidden n-word.

Justin Simien‘s movie generated a lot of buzz at the Sundance Film Festival, winning awards and becoming a major conversation point. This new trailer should definitely continue that.

The lives of four black students at an Ivy League college converge after controversy breaks out due to the ill-conceived theme of the campus humor magazine’s annual Halloween party.

DEAR WHITE PEOPLE certainly has a social and political message it wants to deliver to audiences, but underneath it still looks like a standard college party movie. College movies are always fun but the combination of the political and straight comedy should make this a very entertaining movie.

DEAR WHITE PEOPLE hits theaters on October 24th.
