“Blue Eyes, Brown Eyes” – A Classroom Experiment

It is not enough to simply comprehend that is it wrong or illogical to judge or discriminate against someone based on their physical features/nationality. In order to progress towards equality, there has to be empathy for the humiliation and frustration that those on the receiving end of racism and other forms of physical discrimination feel. This classroom experiment shows the difference between children being taught to say you shouldn’t discriminate and children who have learned, through experience, to empathize and thus truly understand and feel that is it wrong.
