When something you worked on trends at number one on Twitter and Bomani Jones tweets that your Filipino mate looks Chinese and is Latino…

The working title for the docu-special was "What Is White?," which…bleh. I pushed, from the outset, for "White People" to be the title, but J wasn't keen on it.

Fast forward nine months. J calls me after a meeting with MTV executives.

J: We settled on "White People" as the title. I like it.
Jon: [exasperated screaming]

Speaking of white people…

A trip 13 years in the making.

Everyone: Why are you going to Montana?!
Jon: Because the Internet.
