A new season of “Dear White People” is about to hit our televisions and before it does, the cast hit the red carpet for the premiere. Lead star Logan Browning has a message for people who say they can’t relate to the show inside…
Last night, the “Dear White People” cast, including DeRon Horton, John Patrick Amedori, Antoinette Robertson, Logan Browning, Ashley Blaine Featherson, Brandon P Bell and Marque Richardson, joined forces on the red carpet for the Netflix show’s premiere season 2 premiere held at ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood.
Come allll the way through thigh action!
“Dear White People” starlet Logan Browning made a stunning appearance on the red carpet last night as she gears up for the 2nd season of the controversial series. White people certainly have opinions about the show and have not been shy about sharing their feelings. The on-screen and off-screen activist chopped it up with VICE where she responds to critics who say too much of the black experience in the show was defined by whiteness.
“This is a young black kid going to a predominantly white institution, so of course the narrative is under the lens of whiteness,” she explained. “That’s where they are! And it’s the whole point. Make a show if you have an issue with it. Write a show about kids going to an HBCU. There’s room for it. But this specific experience exists, it’s real, and it correlates to our society. We live in a world of whiteness and we have to navigate that. It’s our world and we’re literally giving you a reflection of it. So, if you got an issue, turn it outwards and turn it inwards. It’s what’s around you.”
Serving fierceness in her olive green gown, she snapped it up with her co-stars DeRon Horton and Ashley Blaine during the event.
Speaking of Ashley...
Ashley Blaine was RED HOT on the carpet last night. The YBF starlet rocked a red long-sleeved AYA by DK shirt paried with a high-waisted ZIZTAR skirt and red peep-toe Tom Ford sandals. It's real matchy, matchy, but she totally makes it work.
"The Chi" creator Lena Waithe came out to support as she praised Logan on the carpet.
Actress/model Yaya DaCosta popped up on the carpet to see the new series.
And, of course, "Dear White People" creator Justin Simien was in the mix.
