This is evidence that discrimination is taught, do you think that a newborn infant is naturally racist against another race of people unless he or she lives under discriminative conditions and racist experiences from their authorities and families.
This was a test to show the students what it feels like to be discriminated against, Ms. Jane Elliott didn’t teach the students to discriminate others but that was presumed by the children.
The point was to illustrate to these children that it feels bad when you are judged and discriminated against on the basis of arbitrary factors beyond your control. They were all best friends again at the end of the video.
This video is a perfect representation of how stupid racism is.
I would look so stupid to society if I were to say to someone, “I do not associate with people that have blue eyes,” or “brown eyes.”
At the same token – What is the difference with skin color?
This video demonstrates the true ignorance and stupidity behind racism.See how easy it is to brainwash children? It’s not much harder to brainwash adults too
So who is to blame for not teaching the kids that ethno-chauvinism/masochism are detrimental to the interests of their people and society ?
Change must come from within US first. When you learn to accept (not tolerate) differences, your life, your immediate family, your friends that you mix with your environment will be PEACEFUL. No Bigotry, No wretchedness, no racism within YOU. The problem with most of us is that we externalize the issue when it is all internal to you. The state of PEACEFULNESS however is not static but a dynamic paradigm with constant real time evaluation and feedback.
” Be like water , my friends
be formless shapeless
put water into a cup it becomes the cup
put it into a teapot it becomes the teapot
Now water can flow or drip or creep
or SPLASH !
In other words be flexible and learn to adapt.
