Yet and still, with CNN’s “Latino in America” coming down the pike we here at The Morning After couldn’t help but feel for our white brethren (and it appears we aren’t the only ones). Where is White America’s four-hour special devoted to explaining their behavior and attitudes to the rest of the world?
Never ones to let any voice go unheard, last Friday The Morning After debuted our White in America special. It is an eye opening look into the lives of White America. Thanks to all the participants who kept it open, honest and at times hilariously real.
So here we go… we sent out intern Tempestt out in the streets to ask hard hitting questions. First we had her take a poll to find out “Who in white America actually watched Black in America?” and “How hard it is to be white?”[audio:http://angelayee.mystagingwebsite.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/12-White-In-America-1.mp3]
Things got a little personal when we asked “Is rock music was dead?” but it was our challenge to describe “What is White Food?” that left a lot of our participants stumped.[audio:http://angelayee.mystagingwebsite.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/13-White-In-America-2.mp3]
The election of President Barack Obama has led many to conclude that the country has moved beyond race, so we had Tempestt ask about “Interracial Dating” and whether or not “We live in a post-racial America?”[audio:http://angelayee.mystagingwebsite.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/14-White-In-America-3-1.mp3]
Our apologies to all of you who couldn’t get through, but here’s a few of you that did.[audio:http://angelayee.mystagingwebsite.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/15-White-In-America-4-1.mp3]
It’s only a matter a time before White America gets its own CNN special. Just remember where you heard it first.
