(The Washington Examiner) —  What does it mean to be white in America? A new MTV documentary seeks to answer that question — and others — when it tackles the controversial issue of “white privilege.”

Joe Antonio Vargas, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist from the Philippines who is an illegal immigrant to the U.S., hosts the new documentary.

MTV says their aim is to start “some real and honest conversations in a thoughtful, judgment-free environment.”

The trailer is extremely uncomfortable, featuring many tearful interviews. The documentary itself premieres on July 22 and follows five young white people from around the country.
