MTV Documentary Wants to Make White People Very Uncomfortable

White People, which premieres July 22, was spearheaded by Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist and undocumented activist Jose Antonio Vargas. In the first trailer, he moderates a forum that takes place over the course of several sit-downs with white people — both in groups and one-on-one — wherein he asks them, plainly, to confront their whiteness. That means, he says, getting “all uncomfortable together” about sensitive issues like white guilt, white privilege, and, of course, racism.
