“The More You Know (About Black People)” Uses Very Funny PSAs to Condemn Black Stereotypes

Still from YouTube

Dear White People, Justin Simien’s forthcoming satire on black student experiences in a predominantly white college, is expected to be a sharp and stimulating exploration of racial dynamics. Now the team behind the movie has released a series of comedic PSAs called “The More You Know (About Black People)” that fulfills a similar purpose: the series is comprised of a handful of clips—10 in all—that hilariously tackle some common stereotypes about black people.  

We’ve posted a few favorites from the series above—the rest, and more “about being a black face in a white place”—can be found on the film’s YouTube page. Dear White People is out Oct. 17.
