Get woke and wasted with the ‘Dear White People’ drinking game
We don’t know about you woke folk, but we thought season two of Dear White People was even better than the last. Bringing with it more scandals, topical plot lines, and slippery politics from the campus of Winchester University, S2 conveyed the message that representation matters and they absolutely nailed it this time round (while also tying in lots of will-they-won’t-they-OMG-yes-they-will love stories and cliff hangers to boot).
While at the time of writing there’s been no confirmation of a third season, S2 was a wide success, so it’s looking likely. One thing’s for sure – Netflix will never run out of social issues to unpack. In the meantime, we’ve put together a Dear White People drinking game for you to enjoy and pass the time with your fellow woke buddies. Be sure to enjoy the game responsibly and replace your booze with sips of coffee or water if you’re feeling woozy.
So without further ado, let’s get stuck in!
Take a sip of your drink everytime . . .
