• New MTV Show Publicly Shames White Youth, Hosted By Illegal Immigrant

    MTV will air a documentary late July entitled White People that is essentially devoted to the problems that white people have caused in America.

    The show is hosted by journalist Jose Antonio Vargas, an illegal immigrant and amnesty activist who has worked for the Washington Post and the Huffington Post.

    Vargas specifically interviews young white Americans in the show and asks them what’s wrong with them and how it feels to be white and what “white privilege” has meant to the country and means to them.

    The trailer for the show features white people expressing angst about how they are desperate not to appear “racist” or “offend people.”

    One of the cast members is seen telling the former Washington Post reporter: ‘If you say the wrong thing then suddenly you are a racist.’

    “I don’t want to offend people,” one woman says in the trailer.

    “How might your life be different if you weren’t white?” Vargas asks a white women. “When you say ‘white,’ what does that mean to you?”

    “We’ve never had to internalize what white people have done in America,” the woman replies, “but here you can’t escape that.”

    Vargas, in another video posted on the network’s YouTube site, also talks to young Native Americans who feel that European settlers did not ‘save the country’.

    Vargas, a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, has lived in the United States as an undocumented resident for 21 years, and was arrested by immigration authorities last year while trying to fly out of the border town of McAllen, Texas. He was released several hours later, after being questioned.

    He revealed he was an undocumented immigrant in an essay for the New York Times magazine in June 2011.
