A Class Divided

Recently at work I had to take a class on workplace diversity issues. One of those "Hey, let's all get along together and make some money for the company along the way" kind of classes that Human Resource offices all over the place are presenting to keep companies out of court and to help ease any race or gender issues in the workplace. Anyway, I took this class. It was the fourth time I have taken it and each time, the presenter uses about 15 minutes of a video about a teacher who divided her class into two groups - blue eyed people and brown eyed people. But only seeing just part of the video leaves you kind of empty. What happens next? What is the reaction of the class. Well, folks, look no further. The good people of PBS have the entire 40-minute video online. You can enjoy the streaming video feed and watch even more uncomfortableness as the teacher does the same thing with a group of adults. It is sit-on-the-edge-of-your-seat squirminess.
