At first I didn't really think that the students would change much. When they were getting interviewed it seemed like they had a pretty good idea that discrimination is wrong and that they should treat each other the same. It also seemed like they were too young to truly understand discrimination.
As the video started to develop and the plan was set up by the teacher I could not believe what I was witnessing. It was obvious that the scenario was working as the students that had the privileges were acting like they were superior to the others. When they switched roles it showed that even more.
What I conclude from this video is that racism and bias are learned, and can be easily learned. These students did not seem to have any preconceived notions of privilege, but when they were given privilege they took it to mean they were superior. This really hits home being a parent of very young children. I now am so much more aware of any micro-aggressions or any implicit bias I may display. We also will actively talk to our children about race and celebrating different cultures.
