Clips From MTV's 'White People'

White People is a new documentary from Pultizer Prize-winning journalist Joe Antonio Vargas. It premieres July 22 on MTV and explores whiteness in the US.



The documentary depicts different people who face racial diversity issues. A white man who attends a traditionally black college, teachers at a South Dakota reservation where resentment toward white people is presumebly tangible, a young man in Brooklyn who is baffled by Asian immigrants on his block, a white man who teaches a college course on white privilege.

"The only thing I fear is not having these conversations," Vargas tells the AP. "What I fear is the silence, the indifference, the ignorance. We can no longer have a conversation about race and diversity without having white people in it."
