Look Deeper is a safe space for the conversations you want to have about bias in pop culture, the news, and in your own lives. You can share stories and comment using images, videos, audio clips, links, and more.

Look Deeper is part of MTV's Look Different campaign, which is here to help you erase the hidden racial, gender, and anti-LGBT bias all around us. As part of the campaign, MTV launched the Look Different Challenge, asking for creative ideas for a digital tool that would help us have meaningful conversations about bias. The winning tool, Look Deeper, was inspired by an entry from Joe Wheeler, a recent graduate and designer interested in how thoughtful media can spark conversations and encourage critical thinking.

Any questions or comments? Reach us at support@lookdifferent.org.

If a white person feels they are a victim of discrimination its not 'reverse racism' - racism is an umbrella term for discrimination against any race by any race!

I see many people identify as Asian, Black, etc. And apparently that's ok, but it's not OK to identify yourself as white. Because remember white people, you don't have say....


I feel like if people just stopped associating race with simple daily things, racism wouldn't be as big or a problem


Thoughts on this? Blacks commit eight times more crimes against whites than vice-versa, according to FBI statistics from 2007. A black male is 40 times as likely to...
