Dopeness #2: “Get Out” and Other “Scary White People” in Race Based Films
Brehs, we present to you a new podcast called DOPENESS where every week Nick Delmacy is joined by a guest and they discuss dope movies, dope music, dope web series and all things dope in pop culture (except celebrity gossip). Some topics will be gay/bisexual related, some will not…but every discussion will be from a POV that you won’t hear anywhere else!
In this episode, Cypher Avenue Co-Creator Octavius Williams joins Nick to discuss the origins of his Social Justice focus on the site, then they dive into a SPOILER FREE review of “Get Out” (8:30), if the film marks the start of Black Filmmakers no longer making “Slavery & Oppression” films (12:25), how both Black and White audiences may react to the film very differently (23:54), the film being a metaphor for “Respectability Politics” (27:41), Octavius’ own negative difficulties growing up light-skinned in the south (30:30), how this film is a resurgence in race confronting films seen back in the 80s and 90s (35:03), then they give their final thoughts on “Get Out.” (40:30) Enjoy Brehs!
