Taking Up Space | Yale University | Netflix


Published on 1 year ago

Shows like Dear White People - Show matter because they're based on real-life experiences. Here's what it looks like off-screen when Black folk take it upon themselves to create community despite being one of a few.

Black this. Black that! You guys wanna be included in everything yet separate yourselves at the same time with creating black spaces. Being a racist and a "victim" seems to be the way to get ahead for blacks now. Congratulations.

This video is to my surprise actually good, I 100% agree with everything, except the email incident, I really think people and especially this students need to just reflect a bit more about the "email issue" because I believe anyone with common sense could tell that the reaction the students had was really extremely exaggerated.

The Halloween email thing is simply not true. I go to Yale. It's funny how people can twist things.

Love love that this is being made!! However, one of the instances she talked about in the beginning, the email from the faculty saying people can wearing what Halloween costumes they want regardless of appropriation... I know she didn’t seem involved, but that was a really conflated incident which targeted the professor who sent the email (which was more a reactionary email saying Yale shouldn’t police police what students wear unless it’s dramatically offensive) and her family. Protestors were going to their home and chalking it and yelling at them in their face as they left home for errands. I think the reaction was mishandled and disproportionate to the crime. The email writers husband grew up with many multi-racial adopted siblings and he tried to calmly dissipate the situation, and they kept referring to him as an active white supremacist with no evidence. I encourage people to look into that. :/ super disappointing.

This is still pathologic, it is still tribalism. It's just the other side of the other extreme.

This is soooo important! Thank you Netflix for creating this type of content. It's so important to highlight the experience black students face at PWI's. This is the first step to change, the institutions that be can no longer hide their flaws. They must address the racial bias on campus and provide resources to change them.

this is SUCH BULSHIT!! I was a Freshman at Yale when those "events" took place and the students were out of their fucking minds. I don't think i have ever seen so many self-entitled privileged people protesting for something that was just not there... What the email said was that it shouldn't be the administration's job to tell students what they should and shouldn't wear, and that students should be allowed, given that they are adults, to make those decisions (or confront smo in they felt offended) on their own. And those accusations on the sorority were NEVER reported, some girl posted them on her fb status...but people acted like they were 100% true. And i doubt than in this day and age someone would have the GUTS to say that on two black girls' faces. EVERYONE that goes to Yale is privileged, including minority students. And the people that were screaming that 'they were dying' at the professor for literally expresing a different opinion than them (so much for freedom of speach) were coming from affluent suburban neighborhoods, so I doubt how much "opressed" they were... I suggest if anyone wants to see what went down to see these videos here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kMc8pczn-hs&pbjreload=10 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JGoT7jurRF8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xK4MBzp5YwM

so to all white people who are triggered by this video of black people talking about racism A strong advice, if you are not a racist then it's not about and you don't have to worry about. But if black people just talking about racism is unnerving to you, then take a long hard look at yourself. why are you so worried and scared of strong minority voices?

For those of you who think racism is a thing of the past....have a look at these comments...

She has not experienced racial atrocities. Wrong use of word. Racial atrocities ware what the slaves experienced. But, she seems like a very intelligent and poised young lady. So i hope she does not dwell on racial crap. As long as no one blocks you into class or do anything to impede your ability to get an education then who cares how others feel about you?

Yeah, go watch the video where they are screaming at that professor. Those students didn't treat him with dignity or respect. While screaming and throwing a tantrum he calmly explained his position and the values of anti censorship and freedom for all students of the university which were originally fought to be had by minority students. Now they want to live in pure fascism and censorship because any costume they find offensive is emotionally painful and should be banned? These students complaing, showing a lack of respect and tolerance for others is what is truly disgusting. They are the priviliged ones going to an ivy league!

Race shouldn't be a factor in choosing anything, if you treat ppl with respect, ppl will treat u back equally, if not then their just botches

So much of the allure of Ivy League schools comes from the amount of exclusion they exhibit. If any Ivy tripled their enrollment within the next few years, the current students would be outraged.
