NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles®) – For far too long, white people have been absent from films, television shows, news anchor desks, advertising billboards and product labels. But finally, they are taking the spotlight away from people of color, thanks to a new MTV show, “White People.”
The documentary, produced by Filipino undocumented immigrant Jose Antonio Vargas, tackles the sensitive and delicate issue of white privilege in America.
“Its about time we see white faces on television, and not always people of color that have dominated both daytime and primetime slots,” said 23-year-old John Smith, a mass communications student at Harvard University.
Even the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) endorsed the documentary, saying that “the colored community has had a long history of privilege in America. It is time we shift the attention to white people. After all, they are Americans just like us.”
The forward-looking documentary airs tonight and can be viewed online starting at 8PM Eastern time. Dozens and dozens of viewing parties have been scheduled in white neighborhoods across the country.
It’ll surely be tomorrow’s hot topic around workplace water cooler stations and in break rooms.
