A video producer at Augsburg College who viewed the video wrote:
"Simply terrific stuff! I was thoroughly engaged in it. What a terrific conversation. It did what good art does: got me thinking. I say this with no small measure either. That is difficult to accomplish. I was fascinated by hearing the stories on how the interviewees have been treated simply based on what they are wearing. I need to give this a lot more thought. "
The past president of the Federation of Associations for Behavioral and Brain Sciences said:
"Your documentary is an excellent portrayal of the personal impact of unthinking stereotypic attributions. I'd like to post the video on the FABBS website for professors to use for educational purposes and for anyone else to view to learn about psychology. "
