MTV's show White People Documentary?

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 filmmaker, Jose Antonio Vargas, as he travels across the country to get this complicated conversation started. 
‘White People’ asks what’s fair when it comes to affirmative action, if colorblindness is a good thing, what privilege really means, and what it’s like to become the “white minority” in your neighborhood.

Okay so after so watching the documentary white people and its not as bad as i thought. This first episode introduced us to a girl named Katy, who claims that because she’s white she is at a disadvantage of receiving scholarships because she’s white *side-eye*. 

So the filmmaker Jose gets facts that show that white people are 40% more likely to get scholarships than marginalized groups and when Jose threw them facts at her, she starts to revert back, and is now trying to play the victim. Let me know your thoughts...
