Well, we’ve been saying this all along. But it’s nice when an acclaimed director (and admitted undocumented American) Jose Antonio Vargas says it too.
Vargas is the director of the documentary “White People,” and Vargas believes that whiteness cannot be ignored in the larger racial debate in the U.S.
“Too often I think when we talk about diversity or we talk about inclusion, we don’t include white people in the conversation,” he explained to TheWrap, adding that “diversity is the destiny of this country.”
“We are living in such a politically charged and politically correct time that sometimes I wonder how willing are white people to say what they really think and really feel,” Vargas said. “I would rather you say it than not say it, because then you just internalize it … and we don’t talk about it at all.”
Right. We’re looking forward to seeing “White People,” which debuted last week on MTV. It is also available on MTV.com, the MTV App, MTV’s Facebook page and its YouTube channel, as well as the following morning on iTunes, Amazon Instant Video and MTV’s Video On Demand services.
