PBS Documentary ResponsePBS Documentary ResponseNicole PatelGavilan CollegeDiscrimination has been an issue before and after the discrimination act was passed. Discrimination is, "The behavior that results from stereotyping or prejudice-overt actions to exclude, avoid, or distance oneself from other groups- is called Discrimination" (Martin & Nakayama 2014, p.62). Discrimination is a reoccurring theme in the video A Class Divided: Brown eyes/blue eyes. This film demonstrated how discrimination feels as a child and as an adult. In both situations the ones being discriminated against felt bad and the ones discriminating felt like they were on top of the world and were better than the different ...view middle of the document...

62). This shows that even children can learn that discrimination is bad and that it doesn't feel good when you put yourself in their shoes.Then there was a second group of adults that had the same situation. The brown eyed people were the ones discriminating the blued people. Since it was a work related workshop only a few of the blue eyed people spoke up and didn't do as the instructor said to do. The few that did speak up were immediately put down by the instructor and had the brown people agree with her. This shows that many people just want to be on the winning side of things. They want to feel superior to others to make them feel good about themselves.A weird concept of this documentary was it was the comparison of the color of eyes. Most of the time when discrimination is brought up people think of African- Americans compared to White people, but in this case they used eye color. Discrimination can involve, "Intended to degrade, intimidate, or incite violence or prejudicial action against a person or group of people based on their group membership: race, gender, age, ethnicity, nationality, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, language ability, moral or political view, socioeconomics class, occupation or appearance (such as weight, height, and hair color)" (Martin & Nakayama 2014, p.62). In these cases people were discriminated because of their appearance making everyone feel small to the superior person.Bibliography:Martin, J. N., & Nakayama, T. K. (2014).
