A remarkable documentary
27 July 2002 | by jvcatoledoSee all my reviews

This amazing documentary talks about Jane Elliott, a former white teacher who tries to show other white people the feeling of being discriminated. Basically, is that; but the way she teaches blue eyed people how is to be an African-American is pretty touching.

I recommend this one to everybody. I believe it will make you think about discrimination against colored people, women, gays... and how to stop stereotypes. Ms. Elliott, you're a role-model!!!
