MTV is going to air Jose Antonio Vargas’s documentary series titled “White People” on July twenty second, 2015. This documentary is supposedly going to follow five white students and question their “white privilege” in society. Already, Mr. Vargas is being demonized by people that I assume classify, identify and label as white on the Internet.
Dislikes compared to likes are five to one on this official trailer’s YouTube video, at time of this blog post creation. As is proverbial with white people to me, they are on the offensive on the Internet about this documentary. How dare you analyze, criticize, and view white people cynically, critically, and analytically.
While I don’t watch television myself, I am a little surprised this documentary series will be aired. Perhaps this will become white washed, who knows. Jose Antonio Vargas is not a documented immigrant, living in America.
He has not been deported as of yet, but claims daily he gets at least questioning or calling for his deportation, via social networking. He is not legal to the white man but he proclaims he is not leaving anytime soon. Jose is a Pulitzer prize winning writer.
Interestingly enough he was born in the Philippines. It will be interesting to see the white lash he gets from white people in America and perhaps planet wide. I’m also interested to see if ratings plummet or not on MTV during airing of this series.
