Video: Lesson in discrimination

[caption id="attachment_2078" align="aligncenter" width="300"](photo credit) (photo credit)[/caption] Oh how I love this! I have seen the original exercise many times, however, PBS's Frontline produced an amazing five part series you won't want to miss! Jane Elliott's - Blue Eyes/Brown Eyes Exercise - "A CLASS DIVIDED"
This is one of the most requested programs in FRONTLINE's history. It is about an Iowa schoolteacher who, the day after Martin Luther King Jr. was murdered in 1968, gave her third-grade students a first-hand experience in the meaning of discrimination. This is the story of what she taught the children, and the impact that lesson had on their lives.
Watch the five part series: The Daring Lesson Day Two 14 Years Later Teaching it to Adults How the Adults Reacted Jane Elliott is still around doing amazing work, check her out! Happy Friday, Your Friends at iCelebrateDiversity.com

Speak Up! Responding to Everyday Bigotry

SPEAK UP! Your brother routinely makes anti-Semitic comments. Your neighbor uses the N-word in casual conversation. Your co-worker ribs you about your Italian surname, asking if you're in the mafia. Your classmate insults something by saying, "That's so gay." And you stand there, in silence, thinking, "What can I say in response to that?" Or you laugh along, uncomfortably. Or, frustrated or angry, you walk away without saying anything, thinking later, "I should have said something." People spoke about encounters in stores and restaurants, on streets and in schools. They spoke about family, friends, classmates and co-workers. They spoke about what they did or didn't say — and what they wished they did or didn't say. And no matter the location or relationship, the stories echo each other. Speak Up! is a book that shares love, insight and pain, but also offers "lost words", practical solutions and hope for a better tomorrow. Download your free copy of SPEAK UP! Another great resource offered by Teaching Tolerance.

Poem: "We are talking about" (biracial)

This will be my last poem from Arnold Adoff's book "All the Colors of the Race" that I featured a couple of days ago. There are many more great poems in the book--buy it or check it out from your local library! We are talking about by Arnold Adoff We are talking about                            the ones who pick        their friends                            because of how    black      they act                                                                              or                            because of how    white     they can                                                                              be. Sometimes blackness seems too black for me,                     and whiteness is too     sickly pale;                     and I wish every                                         one were golden from                                                                     the                                                                    sun.                          Golden from the                                                    inside                                                 out.
