Netflix made a series called "Dear White People" that will be releasing soon, and it pissed a lot of people off. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1LzggK5DRBA See the likes vs dislikes. Numbers are pretty one sided.

Then we come to find out that George Soros bought the controlling stock in Netflix about 2 months ago. http://www.marketwatch.com/story/george-soros-buys-stakes-in-alphabet-netflix-dumps-disney-general-motors-2016-11-14 https://www.thestreet.com/story/13377046/1/is-george-soros-right-to-bet-so-heavily-on-netflix.html

To add to this, the show is based off the movie with the same name. IMDB link to movie.

Pulled from the Plot Summer Page from IMDB

  • A social satire that follows the stories of four black students at an Ivy League college where controversy breaks out over a popular but offensive black-face party thrown by white students. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, the film explores racial identity in acutely-not-post-racial America while weaving a universal story of forging one's unique path in the world. - Written by Anonymous

  • At prestigious Winchester University, biracial student Samantha White begins her radio show, "Dear White People, the amount of Black friends required not to seem racist has just been raised to two. Sorry, your weed man Tyrone doesn't count." Sam becomes president of the all-Black residential hall Parker-Armstrong, whose existence is facing extinction in the name of diversification. TV reality show "Black Face/White Place" smells gold in Sam's story and decides to follow it, rejecting the proposal of fellow Black student Coco Conners, who pitched a show titled "Doing Time at an Ivy League." The clamor over Sam's rise also becomes a career-defining opportunity for Black misfit Lionel Higgins when he is asked to join the school's lily-white newspaper staff to cover the controversy, even though he secretly knows little about Black culture. - Written by Sundance Film Festival

Just for clarity, he bought a lot of Netflix stock, but not a majority share. He doesn't own Netflix. That doesn't mean he doesn't have some input though.

Didn't they back off from it? Or I just heard it wrong?

Netflix, in just two years' time, went from great library of TV shows, to a digitized cable network in the vein of HBO (and in doing so, dropped most of their good licensed shows, leaving chinese shitgarbage as padding), to a full-stop Soros-funded propaganda mill.

You could have smelled the death on Netflix around the first or second time they dropped the entire Star Trek franchise in 2015.

RIP in Peace Netflix 1997-2017

Yeah, that's why I said first or second time. This has been a recurring thing. Did it with Doctor Who (1963 and 2005) as well. I don't think DW is still on there now, but I don't have a subscription anymore, so who knows?

Netflix outlived it's usefulness, shit on its core customer base, and is about to go the way of Blockbuster Video.

Correct, the Netflix model is still good, but Netflix the company is no longer great.

No, Netflix and Hollywood just took a massive shit on the War against Internet Piracy without understanding the world is upside down.

I think it's super funny that they are showing all the black people basically intruding, and then vandalizing other people's property. I suppose no one told them that taking physicall action for hurt feelings is against the law. But hey, I'm white. So I must be racist.

Some crybabies feeling victimized, by an announced show they haven't even seen an episode from, but still think it's too racist.

The problem is the hypocrisy moreso than the racism. If FOX debuted a show called Dear Niggers or Dear Goat Fuckers or the like, making fun of these people's behaviors and cultures, the backlash from SJWs would be far louder and even violent in places. You can't have it both ways.
