White Privilege, The Myth | Documentary Idea
by Juli Hayden
(Newport Beach, CA USA)
As a 5th generation American of Spanish, French, Mexican and many other nationalities, I find the entire subject of white privilege fascinating.
Growing up in a multi-cultural environment it would be interesting to travel the country interviewing those 'Caucasian' Americans who would not be considered 'privileged' simply because of the color of their skin.
We have smart, successful individuals of every race, creed and color and 'white privilege' is not, in my opinion, the reasons for the problems facing our society. It is Hollywood, professors and others who are perpetrating this narrative and I would like to try and bring our nation back together, not by interviewing politicians or actors, but regular people to get an idea of what is really going on and how this term came to be.
