In anticipation of this years monochromatic Academy Awards, Dumbuzzfeed has created a test to help you determine if a movie has reached peak whiteness. Spoiler: It happens all the time!
Inspired by barometers such as the Bechdel test and the recent DuVernay test, which test the gender and racial inequality of a film, respectively, Dumbuzzfeed has created a test of its own.
The Dumbuzzfeed Peak Whiteness (DPW) Test consists of one experiment: if you google a film’s cast and every actor pictured on the first screen is white, then that film has reached peak whiteness.
We’ve curated some examples of movies that pass the DPW Test with flying colors (plz note that by colors, we mean color, and by color, we mean white).
Fun fact. These are all Oscar Nominated Films. (plz note that by fun fact we mean depressing as f**k fact)
*Not technically Oscar Nominated, but unbelievably f**king white
These two films technically don’t pass the DPW Test, but still….1/8…..
