The above video titled “The Unequal Opportunity Race” was screened as part of a schoolwide Black History Month program at Glen Allen High School in Glen Allen, Virginia. Some parents apparently weren’t thrilled about that. One local grandparent had two words for what this video was pushing on white kids.

This video is such a great educational tool I fell in love with it when I first saw it

One of my professors is on the Board that commissioned this video. He plays it at least once in every one of his BLST and SOC classes.

The video itself is banned in certain school districts throughout the country because white parents felt their high schoolers were being taught to somehow hate themselves, despite he video only showing historically relevant social events that have affected our racial climate.

You can watch the video, and others regarding Black people in the US, on the African American Policy Forum’s website.
