Talk about kicking someone while they’re down. MTV has just produced a film to mock White people as pathetic wastes. And it looks like most of those interviewed for “White People” are indeed pathetic wastes.
The network is serious about its newest documentary from Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas, who won the prize for covering the Virginia Tech shootings in 2007. White People tackles the hot topic conversation of white privilege head-on in a special presentation borne out of MTV’s Emmy-winning Look Different campaign.
The doc premieres on July 22 on MTV and follows five young white people from around the country, exploring their notions of racial identity in modern America.
Why was I not called to be interviewed for this film? Why were you not?
Who are these people?
Do they represent us?
When is enough going to be enough? How much more open abuse will we suffer before we are willing to stand up and object?
