The Event: How Racist Are You? with Jane Elliott (Channel 4) (FULL)

465 Views 93 Comments

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.)

Central Park Five's Yusef Salaam: Donald Trump Needs to Be Fired from Running for President

863 Views 176 Comments

http://democracynow.org - In 1989, Yusef Salaam and four other African-American and Latino teenagers were arrested for beating and raping a white woman in New York City’s Central Park. They became known as the Central Park Five. Donald Trump took out full-page ads in New York newspapers calling for their execution. Then, in 2002, their convictions were vacated after the real rapist came forward and confessed to the crime and his DNA matched. By then, the Central Park Five served between seven and 13 years in jail for the assault. The city settled with them for $41 million. But as late as last week Donald Trump still claimed they were guilty. We speak with Yusef Salaam, one of the Central Park Five, who writes in The Washington Post that "Donald Trump won’t leave me alone."

Co-directed, written and produced by Ken Burns, Sarah Burns & David McMahon. The film is being featured tonight on Colbert Report, so tune in to get a sneak peek of the film! In 1989, five black and Latino teenagers from Harlem were arrested and later convicted of brutally beating and raping a white woman in New York City's Central Park. New York Mayor Ed Koch called it the "crime of the century" and it remains to date one of the biggest media stories of our time. The five each spent between 6 and 13 years in prison before a shocking confession from a serial rapist and DNA evidence proved their innocence. Set against a backdrop of a decaying city beset by violence and racial tension, THE CENTRAL PARK FIVE tells the story of how five lives were upended by the rush to judgment by police, a sensationalist media and a devastating miscarriage of justice. Join author and filmmaker Sarah Burns for a sneak preview and discussion of her film The Central Park Five & her book on the same subject. We'll have a short preview of parts of the film & Q&A with Sarah. Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AehmA3hTLmA
