White People - Define American

White People

What does it mean to be white?

MTV’s White People is a groundbreaking documentary on race that aims to answer that question from the viewpoint of young white people living in America today. The film follows Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and Define American founder, Jose Antonio Vargas, as he travels across the country to get this complicated conversation started. White People explores complex and timely issues including whether colorblindness is a good thing, what privilege really means, and what it’s like to become the “white minority” in your neighborhood.
