Mandatory teaching material
29 July 2003 | by (Ballerup, Denmark) – See all my reviews

Jane Elliot travels across America teaching college students about racism. She starts of by asking if anyone would like for one day to be treated the way blacks and other people of color are being treated every day. Nobody volunteers! At first that is. She then takes a group of people and divide them into two groups based on eye color. The blue eyed will then be treated very poorly, and kept being told that they are stupid and not as good as the brown eyed people.

To see this 55-year old, 5 feet tall, 100 pound woman thunder away at a 7 foot, 300 pound redneck, and making him cry in a space of 2 minutes is quite amazing.

This documentary blew me away. Its unique way of describing and discussing racism is unbelievable. Every class in the world should see this film. Maybe then, racism would begin to disappear.
