Description

Encourage your students to explore biases and stereotypes with this collection of ABC News segments. Each scenario puts actors into exchanges with unwitting bystanders, generating a wide range of responses – from overt hostility toward other races and cultures to acts of genuine compassion.

Scenes include:

  • a bakery clerk’s refusal to serve a Muslim woman wearing a headscarf
  • cruelty toward an overweight woman seated on a boardwalk
  • a very public argument that threatens to become violent
  • a purse-snatching in a crowded square, after which witnesses are asked to view a suspect lineup

Repeating the two latter situations, producers achieve varying reactions among onlookers by switching the races of the actors.

Viewing time: 37 minutes. Closed-captioned. 2008. Purchase options: DVD, 3-year Streaming, or DVD and 3-year Streaming; please see the Product Options box above when ordering.
