A new red band trailer and four clips have arrived for Dear White People, a sly, provocative satire of race relations in the age of Obama.

Winner of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival's Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Talent, writer/director Justin Simien follows a group of African American students as they navigate campus life and racial politics at a predominantly white college in a sharp and funny feature film debut.

The unexpected election of activist Samantha White (Tessa Thompson) as head of a traditionally black residence hall sets up a college campus culture war that challenges conventional notions of what it means to be black. The latest footage chronicles an outrageous, ill-conceived annual Halloween party, with its "unleash your inner Negro" theme throwing oil on an already smoldering fire of resentment and misunderstanding. When the party descends into riotous mayhem, everyone must choose a side.

Check out the latest from this hilarious and heartfelt look at campus race wars, opening in theaters next weekend.
