There is no questioning that the racial disparities in the US are evident in different areas of society. An excellent example is the attention black people versus white people get when they go missing. The media and police give more attention to the latter than the former. Dr. Whitehead calls this the “missing white woman syndrome.” She states that it goes back to slavery, where white women were lifted up, and the rest were crushed. To some extent, the media plays a huge role in promoting this as they cover cases of missing white people more than missing black people. What do you think?
These 30 people have never met. By the days end, they may wish they never had. For one long day they'll be at the mercy of The Bitch, a retired American teacher. Some would say she calls herself this way for good reason.
For 40 years Jane Elliott (A Class Divided) has been running an exercise that has ignited controversy around the world. She says it lays bare the hidden truth about racism in white societies. Many disagree, some vehemently. Now she's bringing her extreme methods and message to modern Britain. She's about to divide this group. Her aim: Simulate a racist apartheid style regime.
Will the British people accept her regime or stand up to it? Does it reveal that we're all more racist than we'd like to admit? How Racist Are You? is a documentary investigating one of the most taboo subjects in society.
