One of the major things that stood out to me while watching the video was the fact that the blue-eyed children did not stand up for their brown-eyed classmates at the beginning of the experiment. They saw the perks they would be receiving for being blue-eyed and liked the idea that they would get to have more access to things. Those who might have wanted to stand up to their teacher didn't, and it made me wonder if that is what our society looks like in terms of racism. It's not always easy to stand up to a person or system of authority, especially when you are on the receiving end of the special treatment. In fact, one of the blue-eyed students even commented that the teacher should keep her ruler out to use on the brown-eyed students if they get out of hand. Hence, suggesting they are more likely to break the rules, because they aren't as great as blue-eyed students. A couple of days in, and the blue-eyed students were now treating their brown-eyed classmates differently, as though they were less than, when a few days prior, they were equal. The brown-eyed students began to accomplish their assignments at a slower rate, because they were constantly focused on the fact that they weren't as good as their blue-eyed classmates. When the roles were reversed, the brown-eyed students didn't seek revenge, but wanted for their blue-eyed classmates to understand. They began to thrive and see themselves for their potential. This was a wonderful lesson and extremely eye opening. We are what we believe we are. This holds true in all aspects, and I believe it holds more weight when those around you also believe you are equal. I really enjoyed this video.
