There’s a new show about systemic racism premiering on Showtime. 

The docuseries “Everything’s Gonna Be All White” is being pitched by the network as, “A deep dive into America’s past and present through the experiences of people of color. The docuseries marries humor with history as it confronts the facets of racism, exploitation and discrimination that contributed to the formation of America.”

The popular Twitter account Libs of TikTok posted the recently released trailer for the docuseries along with the caption, “What fresh propaganda hell is this.”

“Warning: This trailer may trigger white people,” the opening graphic says. 

“I think what annoys me most about white people is when they pretend like they’re the victim,” comedian Amanda Seales says in the trailer while pretending to cry. “What’s also annoying is when they, you know, when they kill us.”

“What is fragile about whiteness when everything’s been constructed around it,” another interviewee wonders. 

“You’re not patriots, you’re ridiculous,” one interviewee opines.

“One of the definitions of American whiteness is ignorance,” historian Nell Irvin Painter continues. 

“Should white people today feel any responsibility for slavery? Hell yeah,” one participant says.

The trailer includes video clips of statue toppling and the January 6 Capitol riot interspersed with people discussing white supremacy and how it’s still pervasive in the culture, according to them. Collider reported that along with Seales, comedian Margaret Cho, and Painter, Ibram X. Kendi, Jemele Hill, Favianna Rodriguez, Tamika Mallory, Styles P, and Nick Estes participated in “Everything’s Gonna Be All White.”

The trailer currently has 2.2 million views on YouTube and 1,300 thumbs up. “Guaranteed 80-90% of its audience will be white elites,” one Twitter user said in reply to the Libs of TikTok post. 

“The US had a good run. It’s past time to divide the country into two or possibly several nations to allow people with the same mindset to live together,” another said.

The comments on the official YouTube video expressed similar sentiments.

“I love how some of these comments have more likes than the actual video, we don’t need a dislike button to show how we as a community feel,” one commenter said. “This isn’t a documentary to end racism, it’s a documentary to encourage it.”

“Its a creepy feeling to see people you’ve never met, that you know nothing about, who don’t know you, telling you how much they hate you,” another top-liked comment reads. “I hope the people in this video can rid themselves of the hatred that has clearly poisoned their hearts and made them hate an entire race of people.”

“Imagine having your whole identity be a professional victim and then claiming it’s annoying when other people act like victims. This should be embarrassing to people of color…..myself included,” a third person said. “Always being talked about as lesser individuals by people that look like me. It’s self loathing I will never understand. Specially when it’s being blamed on others. This trailer is cringe and hilarious.”

“Everything’s Gonna Be All White” premieres on Showtime at 8 p.m. on February 11.
