White People, MTV’s newest documentary directed by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jose Vargas is set to premiere on July 22nd. After reading several articles on the documentary one can’t help but question why MTV and Vargas would produce such an idea.
The documentary follows five white millennials as they explore the idea of white privilege, white history, and white frustration.
Sites such as Infowars.com and Entertainment Weekly warn viewers of how uncomfortable the trailer can make one feel. After watching the trailer myself and doing research on the documentary, I have to agree. Below is the trailer for MTV’s White People.
Soon to follow this premiere is another Jose Vargas and MTV documentary titled, Black People.
