WATCH: 10 Hours of Walking Around NYC as a White Man
After the real-life video of a woman walking around NYC being verbally harassed at least 100 times in 10 hours went viral, some people (Fox News) still seem determined not to get the point. To drive it home a little more, "Funny or Die" has made a companion spoof showing what it's like to walk around as a white man.
It's not like people just leave the man alone. They shout out things like, "Want a job?" "Do you like football?" and "Want a Starbucks giftcard?"
One person he passes says, "Hey, you look real desirable but I'm going to respect your privacy."
At the end, graphic texts tells viewers that at least 100 instances of street privilege occurred to this beleaguered fellow. Obviously, it's an exaggeration, but it humorously makes the point that just walking down the street is different for men than for women. The friendly offers of jobs and networking opportunities also make a second point about white privilege.
