Have you heard of the brown eyes vs blue eyes study done in the 70s?
I just found out about this myself, and watched the video and then went to learn a little about it..... pretty interesting, if you watch it may make you think differently about the way you treat people.



This is one of the most requested programs in FRONTLINE's history. It is about an Iowa schoolteacher who, the day after Martin Luther King Jr. was murdered in 1968, gave her third-grade students a first-hand experience in the meaning of discrimination. This is the story of what she taught the children, and the impact that lesson had on their lives.

Watch this 46:00 program here in five consecutive chapters.

Re: Have you heard of the brown eyes vs blue eyes study done in the 70s?
from wikipedia:

[link to en.wikipedia.org]

On April 5, 1968, Steven Armstrong was the first child to arrive in Elliott’s classroom, asking why "that King" (referring to Martin Luther King, Jr.) was murdered the day before. After the rest of the class arrived, Elliott asked them what the children knew about blacks. The children responded with various racial stereotypes such as ignorance, unemployment, and common labels to those of Native Americans or Blacks[citation needed]. She then asked these children if they would like to try an exercise to feel what it was like to be treated the way a colored person is treated in America, mentioning that it would be interesting if there was segregation based on eye color instead of skin color. The children enthusiastically agreed to try the exercise.[1]

On that day, she designated the blue-eyed children as the superior group. Elliott provided brown fabric collars and asked the blue-eyed students to wrap them around the necks of their brown-eyed peers as a method of easily identifying the minority group. She gave the blue-eyed children extra privileges, such as second helpings at lunch, access to the new jungle gym, and five extra minutes at recess.[citation needed] The blue-eyed children sat in the front of the classroom, and the brown-eyed children were sent to sit the back rows. The blue-eyed children were encouraged to play only with other blue-eyes and to ignore those with brown eyes. Elliott would not allow brown-eyed and blue-eyed children to drink from the same water fountain, and often chastised the brown-eyed students when they did not follow the experiment's rules or made mistakes. She often exemplified the differences between the two groups by singling out students, and would use negative aspects of brown-eyed children to emphasize. Elliott observed that the students' reaction to the discrimination exercise showed immediate changes in their personalities and interaction with each other as early as the first 15 minutes[citation needed].

At first, there was resistance among the students in the minority group to the idea that blue-eyed children were better than brown-eyed children. To counter this, Elliott used pseudo-scientific explanations for her actions by stating that the melanin responsible for making blue-eyed children also was linked to their higher intelligence and learning ability. Shortly thereafter, this initial resistance fell away. Those who were deemed “superior” became arrogant, bossy and otherwise unpleasant to their “inferior” classmates. Their grades also improved, doing mathematical and reading tasks that seemed outside their ability before. The “inferior” classmates also transformed – into timid and subservient children, including those who had previously been dominant in the class. These children’s academic performance suffered, even with tasks that had been simple before.

The following day, Elliott reversed the exercise, making the brown-eyed children superior. While the brown-eyed children did taunt the blue-eyed in ways similar to what had occurred the previous day, Elliott reports it was much less intense. At 2:30 on that Wednesday, Elliott told the blue-eyed children to take off their collars and the children cried and hugged one another[citation needed]. To reflect on the experience, she had the children write letters to Coretta Scott King and write compositions about the experience.[1]

Blacks willingly allow themselves to act retarded and stupid. Look at ghetto's and Detoit. Every place they move to and take over turns into a shithole. Everything that happens to them is by their own choice now. They have had their freedom from slavery for a long time now. I respet the ones that make an effort to act like an intelligent human being. The rest are nothing but low IQ apes.

I actually studied that in a psychology class I took in the early 70/'s. My opinion at the time was this: The children reacted more to how the teacher portrayed them, than they did to each other. I also based that on my personal experience in a parochial school when I was a small child. The children of the wealthy (which were about 70% of the school), were treated very differently than the rest of us (great unwashed). They sat in the front of the class, the teachers openly favored them, they were told they were smarter than others, prettier, had better clothes (even though we wore uniforms!), and were treated in a way that made them feel superior. BTW, we were all white, but the kids of Irish descent were treated better than those of Italian or German ancestry. I myself was something of a "mutt", and was treated as such.

It will not be much longer that there are no longer blue eyed children. Blue, green, hazel eyes and blond or red hair will no longer exist in 100 years.

The traits may exist for thousands of years in a dormant state, but they will only be considered freaks.

Yep. Very familiar.

This is what society would degrade to if all the racists got their way. First, they would eliminate anyone who didn't have the same skin color. Then it would be hair color, then it would be eye color, and so on. Eventually, it would go to the only place it could...penis size.

That's how racists think. THEY DON'T...

Many racists will conveniently skip this thread.

And just to be on the "safe-side," NO, I don't think non-racists are any better than "racists," I just think they open their minds a bit further to broaden higher possibilities.

It is not about the color of your skin. It is about the ideology you have bought into.

You are either ENTITLED
Or you have Sown with Diligence.

These are the two paths of life.

A new "discrimination" is forming in the US to hate those who have Sown with diligence and steal from them to give to the Entitled and this Administration is aiding and abetting.

And let us hope, that those we are saving are not racist themselves.

Let us hope that they turn away from their human nature. Do you deny that it is human nature to be suspicious of the outsider? Those that look different?

Let us hope these things because we are now delivering our children into this future.

These days, the violence being afflicted on our children is being covered up, painted over with your vile excuse that reverse racism does not and cannot exist.

What society will degrade to is Haiti and Detroit.
