In the new movie “Dear White People,” the lives of four black students at an Ivy League college converge after controversy breaks out due to the ill-conceived theme of the campus humor magazine's annual Halloween party. The sharp satire looks at the experience of being a minority and feeling like a fish out of water. While the movie focuses on race, every day we experience being the odd man out, either because of religion, ethnicity, sex, sexuality, education, economics, the options are endless.
When have you experienced truly being the odd man out? How did you handle it? What about the majority that surrounded you?
