What happens when you tell a bunch of kids that the blue-eyed children are better than the browned-eyed? Watch this video to find out. But be warned – this is one of the most disturbing things I have seen in a long while. It is not that one is unaware that discrimination sits deep in the mind. Or that one doesn’t know kids are rather impressionable. But there is something eery the whole thing I can only compare to the Milgram experiment and Lord of the Flies. Some context here.
Oh, and while I appreciate the lesson, I am glad this ‘teaching’ would’t not be possible today (I hope).
