If you read the book Black Like Me, or saw the movie of the same name dating from the 60s, you got a taste of a white man trying to examine and experience what it was like to be a black man in America. Here is an interesting inversion of examining internally what it is like to be a white person in America. The personal introspective side is well augmented with facts and data.
If we are white, we tend to accept our experiences as normal, and accept our interaction with the world to be the norm for all. This film cracks open the door a bit and lets us look at a 3D "selfie". Self awareness is the beginning of wisdom.
