Analysis of the Black women in Dear White People (Extra Credit)

As the title states, this is also an extra credit assignment and I hope should be enjoyable. Please see the film and write a brief analysis of the film. Does the main character fall into or breaks any of the stereotypes we have talked about this semester (tragic mulatoo, jezebel, mammy or sapphire) and why? Please use examples from the film.  Does this make a difference in how the characters are developed and how the story is told. Here is an article about the film, Dear White People. This film has been out for a few weeks already, so it won’t be out much longer. If you missed a few postings, this assignment will count for three postings, since you are going to a movie instead of watching one in class. The catch is that this assignment need to be completed by Dec. 1st in order to count.
