A Class Divided

Found this video where a teacher (some years ago) injects an arbritary ‘rule’ for discrimination for a class of third-graders: “blue eyes are superior to brown eyes” to let the kids experience in first hand what racism felt like (at that time racial discrimination was probably still very much a norm).

Interesting video – in the comments of the teacher:

I watched what can be marvelous, cooperative, wonderful, thoughtful children turn into nasty, vicious, discriminating little third-graders, in the space of 15 minutes.
