What exactly does it mean to be “white” in America? What’s white privilege? White guilt? White flight? White bread? MTV is making an attempt to address whiteness on a national scale in its new documentary White People.
The trailer for the flick, directed by filmmaker Jose Antonio Vargas, just went live, and it’s looking like you’ll be able to fill up several mugs with the white tears on display here. This trailer straddles the line between tongue-in-cheek joke and serious-minded conversation starter, so even knowing that Vargas has made a film about the Virginia Tech shootings in the past, I have no idea what to expect. Check it out for yourself and catch me watching this when it debuts on July 22nd at 8PM.
