This video is an excellent example of how anyone/everyone can be prejudiced. Bill Cosby includes stereotypical prejudicial remarks against many races, ethnicities, religions, age groups and geographical areas. His satire shows how ridiculous gross generalizations are. He uses "white face" (the opposite of "black face") and lighting in all the colors of the rainbow for further non-verbal commentary. The content is sometimes harsh, as he uses politically incorrect language mostly in the way of slang words for different ethnic groups. My students watch this video before they read ROLL OF THUNDER, HEAR MY CRY by Mildred D. Taylor. I use it as a springboard for discussion on prejudice. I love this video! It shows us how stupid bigotry is.
