01) Inequality in America: A National Town Hall


“Streamed live on Mar 19, 2018

We live in the richest country in the history of the world, but that reality means little because much of that wealth is controlled by a tiny handful of individuals while more than 40 million Americans live in poverty. The issue of wealth and income inequality is the great moral issue of our time, it is the great economic issue of our time, and it is the great political issue of our time.

Tonight, Sen. Bernie Sanders, in partnership with The Guardian, NowThis, The Young Turks and Act.tv, will present a live town hall event on the rise of the oligarchy and the collapse of the American middle class. Sanders will speak with director Michael Moore, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, economist Darrick Hamilton and other guests about the 40-year decline of the middle class and possible solutions to the growing crisis of income and wealth inequality in America.”

01) Blue Eyed With Jane Elliott (1996) Documentary!


“Mrs Jane Elliott Conducts Her Blue Eyes / Brown Eyes Experiment To Create A Microcosm Of Society And Expose Discrimination For What It Is: An Evil That Puts Oppressed Groups In An Impossible Situation.

BLUE-EYED offers viewers a chance to watch a full-length workshop with America’s most dynamic diversity trainer, Jane Elliott.

In BLUE-EYED, we join a group of 40 teachers, police, school administrators and social workers in Kansas City – blacks, Hispanics, whites, women and men. The blue-eyed members are subjected to pseudo-scientific explanations of their inferiority, culturally biased IQ tests and blatant discrimination. In just a few hours under Ms. Elliott’s withering regime, we watch grown professionals become despondent and distracted, stumbling over the simplest commands.

Clips from her original classes and interviews with former students confirm that Jane Elliott’s workshops make them permanently more empathetic and sensitive to the problem of racism. Counselors, student program administrators, corporate trainers and psychologists agree: BLUE-EYED is a film every person needs to experience.

Jane Elliott, internationally known teacher, lecturer, diversity trainer, and recipient of the National Mental Health Association Award for Excellence in Education, exposes prejudice and bigotry for what it is, an irrational class system based upon purely arbitrary factors. And if you think this does not apply to you. . . you are in for a rude awakening.

In response to the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. over thirty years ago, Jane Elliott devised the controversial and startling, “Blue Eyes/Brown Eyes” exercise. This, now famous, exercise labels participants as inferior or superior based solely upon the color of their eyes and exposes them to the experience of being a minority. Everyone who is exposed to Jane Elliott’s work, be it through a lecture, workshop, or video, is dramatically affected by it.”
