The star of Netflix’s “Dear White People” – Logan Browning, says theres a lot more programming today in entertainment giving opportunities to people of color.
“I think we’re definitely in a wave of entertainment where — it sounds how it’s going to sound — being ethnic is cool,” Browning said in a recent interview.
