It’s a known fact that some white people cringe at the thought of having to discuss race. And most of these white people happen to be millennials. In a new MTV documentary, Jose Vargas puts the spotlight on what it means to be white and follows a group of white people around to get their feelings about it.
Take a look at the clip below:
Ok, I get it. Vargas is trying to get his Tim Wise on and help the poor white folks along. But it’s actually hilarious to see some of these people in tears complaining about how they’re considered racist, and how the world is so unfair to them. In the words of Justin Timberlake, “Cry me a river”…fill it with white tears.
Some white people will never get it. You’ll have those who’ll say “I’m poor, I have no privilege”, or “My family worked hard for blah blah blah, why should I be ashamed”. But as they float along life through, these same people are the ones who will turn an eye to racism, and even defend it in the privacy of their own homes.
But I guess we have to give kudos to Vargas for trying to teach the woeful white people something?
