Trailer for MTV’s documentary White People gets uncomfortable

Posted on

MTV

Discomfort has a name, and it’s MTV’s White People.

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.
