How It Feels To Be Discriminated

Vote 1 Vote

A great part of chapter 13 was the "blue eyes vs. brown eyes" experiment mentioned briefly. This experiment was done by a third grade teacher the day after Martin Luther King Jr. died. Its pretty powerful stuff and some of the things the kids say can get upsetting, so fair warning.

One thing that this video did not show was that the next day the teacher reversed the roles. Brown-eyed children became superior to the blue-eyed children. However, they too showed tremendious discrimination and were more than glad to abuse their new found power.

"How do we teach people compassion after they have suffered, and not want revenge?"
