Jose Antonio Vargas, the Pulitzer Prize winning, openly gay advocate who came out as undocumented on the cover of Time Magazine, has created a new documentary that premieres tonight. “White People” looks at power, privilege and race, as we can see from the teasers. The documentary is part of “Look Different,” a multiyear combination of on-air and digital content plus the power of social media – to give youth the tools and the forum to discuss racial, gender and LGBT inequality in society.
