A new documentary from by MTV titled "White People" asks white millennials to take a closer look at how they view race. "I don't think we can have a conversation about race in America anymore and not include white people in the conversation," said journalist Jose Antonio Vargas, who produced the film. How can we have conversations about race that are both welcoming and honest? What are your most meaningful conversations about race, and who were they with? What circumstances fostered them, and what did you learn?
