    I couldn't find it at that link, so did a little search and think this is what you're looking at: http://news.yahoo.com/news?tm....blood_2.

    Too funny, Ozzy! You made me spit my drink all over the monitor.......

    Anyway...did anyone ever hear of the study done with 3rd graders, done in the late 60's, early 70's, I believe....

    The teachers were instructed to inform selected classes that blue-eyed children were superior to brown eyed children. Or maybe vice-versa, I don't remember. The blue-eyed children were given special priviledges, extra recess, etc., etc.

    Sure enough...the brown-eyed kids were quickly oppressed by the blue-eyed ones and treated as 2nd class citizens. And this was all with one suggestion by a teacher.

    Prejudice is easy to start...hard to stop!

    Now do you remember the tongue and cheek skit that Saturday Night Live did, about light & dark...?

    That 60's study is famous. It is used in virtually every history course since then. At our public library they asked for volunteers to re-enact it. I helped set up for the little kids. Has anyone seen the one with Tom Brokaw (sp?)? Same thing but done in the late 80's. It's the predicessor to reality TV. They picked people like a "skin head" and an outspoken young "Jewish girl" ("" for lack of better word). And had them talk one on one infornt of an audience about racism. Very interesting.

    People with hazel eyes are superior, of course. Just kidding...you know...I don't remeber what they did about kids who had hazel eyes...but I would suspect that the blue-eyed kids were superior to them, too.
