This promo for "Dear White People" shows a product every white guy could use: racism insurance. Look, we all know that most white people try their best to avoid racism, but it happens anyway. Sometimes, it comes off TOTALLY wrong and you ruin a whole friendship — that is unless, of course you have racism insurance.
"Man, that's what I love about you. It's like you're a black dude, but you don't act black ... like you don't act all thugged out," says this white dude at the beginning of this video, and you know it ain't right. Fortunately, instead of ruining his potential friendship he's able to say, "Oops, I was racist. Black guy, come here," and his insurance friend appears to defend him from looking like a racist.
Hey, that means there's not even a racist deductible. Awesome. Don't miss the final beat where this white guy crosses a line so much, insurance doesn't even cover it (1:42). Gotta love the threats to "intellectually denigrate and scold" him. Classic.
Check out "Dear White People," in theaters now.
