Dear White People Wiki

Soyboy is an assigned therapy dog for A-P resident Kelsey Philips.


Expressing having been traumatized by the Dear Black People party, Kelsey sought a therapy dog in Sorbet, with permission from the Winchester staff. He accompanied her around campus, primarily within the confines of her A-P dormitory, much to the annoyance or disturbance of other residents.[1]

He was stolen by Al from Kelsey's room, a note left behind for her, and is relocated to his room as his own pet. While Lionel and Brooke were investigating the identity of AltIvyW, they discover Sorbet hidden in a closet shared by Al and Rashid. When Al confesses to stealing the dog from Kelsey, he reluctantly decides to return him before Sorbet bolts out an open window within the dorm and wanders campus.[2][3]

During a drug-induced hallucination, Troy encountered Sorbet, believing the dog to be speaking.[4]
