The Event How Racist Are You With Jane Elliott Channel 4 FULL
The Event How Racist Are You With Jane Elliott Channel 4 FULL

by Per Christia...

Are we all more racist than we realise or would like to admit? For this Channel 4 documentary Jane Elliott, a controversial former schoolteacher from Iowa, is recreating the shocking exercise she used forty years ago to teach her nine year-old pupils about prejudice. Elliott is asking thirty adult British volunteers - men and women of different ages and backgrounds - to experience inequality based on their eye colour to show how susceptible we can all be to bigotry, and what it feels like to be on the other side of arbitrary discrimination. Does Elliott's exercise still have something to teach us four decades on and in a different country? Presented by Krishnan Guru-Murthy, the exercise is observed throughout by two expert psychologists, Prof Dominic Abrams and Dr Funké Baffour, who will be unpicking the behaviour on display. First shown on Channel 4, Thursday 29 October 2009. (There are other uploads of this, but they don't include the full version, the quality is much worse, and the aspect ratio is wrong.)
