Apparently MTV is putting out a new show that discusses "white people". It looks like it talks was out white privilege and attempts to gain sympathy for "white peoples" views at the same time. I'm not sure how I feel about this. My guess is that it is going to create more division in youth rather than bring them closer. Hopefully I'm wrong though.

Alex Jones has his foot in the door on this one. I'm not going to quote him, but you can read his perspective here: Alex Jones - White People

Ghost

Few more clips, it's not looking good. Discussing the Confederate flag, and how natives view white people:

Can't we all just be pro-Human and move on? I am tired of being numbered and classified by Government and the media.

This is the new reality television.

Like the other shows recently that are basically ' Poor Porn ' ( google The Briefcase) it's just major corporations taking advantage.

It's sickening.

Looks like a pretty stupid show. Remember when they played music videos? I do and it was awesome!

Anything that separates people into races just causes more racial divisions. Not sure why we care so damn much about race or anything else that a person was born as/with.

Accomplishments and character are what we should acknowledge and celebrate.

Glad I don't own a TV.

Does anyone over 15 even watch MTV? They don't even play music anymore, correct?

This ^^^
Unfortunately, getting along doesn't help: profits
: entertainment
: religion
: recruitment (war, gangs, etc.)
: everything

In a perfect world, your post would be #1.

Sounds like the opinion of a dirty communist to me. You better stay on your side of the fence.

Comment from Youtube...


“I’m black, even I know this show is straight up racist. Only because it’s stereotyping white people, all white INDIVIDUALS are not like that,” wrote one respondent.

I'm very hopeful about this because I'm thinking this will force white youth to really begin to examine what place, if any, they have in the future of the US. Hopefully, at the end of the process of watching this movie and talking about it with their friends, families and school mates, they'll really start to give their future some deep thought. It would be a big help in that effort if concomitant with this movie, someone in a leadership position, perhaps again....MTV, began to reopen the debate about Reparations, the form they would take, who would pay them and how the repayment would be made. That would be a big help in getting white youth to really start thinking about how much its going to cost them if they stay in the US.

One thing I hope that comes through to the white youth viewers is that, being white, saying "I'm sorry" is never going to be enough. They're white and much more is expected of them in terms of what they owe non-white society. Once that comes through to them, I think they'll finally begin to see how hopelessly difficult a future in the US is going to be for them.

A sensible YT comment?

MTV is desperate for attention, be it positive or negative. This is proof. They used to be relevant, now they aren't.

That's MTV's job -- be "controversial".

Being controversial gets you to watch, it gets advertisers on board. It makes money.

People love cognitive dissonance with reality TV. They love comparing themselves to other people and say, "at least I'm not like THAT!" (meanwhile they actually ARE exactly like that).

Let's beat people over the head with history!
Like all MTV for the last 30 years it's irrelevant garbage.
The constant comparison of the Stars and Bars to the Nazi flag is the latest abuse of history.
The less people know about history the easier it is to concoct such strained comparisons.

You should have started this with /saracasm as I can't read it without laughing.

White people are now in the minority in California.
www.cbsnews.com...

White children will be in the minority within 5 years in the US.
www.upi.com...

White people within 28 years will be the minority in the US.
usnews.nbcnews.com...


To be fair and equal and to give equal treatment, will then white people be accorded minority status?
and accorded benefits and protections that are accorded to all other minorities.


Just a question.

Seriously not going to bother reading beyond this racist comment right here.
What place, if any ?
I'm sure Stromfront has an opposite where such comments would be welcome.
You're talking about my children and grandchildren btw.

Per the rest of your post:
Reparations? Are you serious?
600,000 dead whites isn't payment enough?
Today's White people owe nothing to any other group.
Forcing the issue is called theft.
smh

White people should be all for laws that benefit minorities.

After all, they're going to be minorities themselves eventually. The laws they pass to help minorities today will be the laws that help them in the future.
