Reflection

  1. 1. Anastasiia Semenchenko FYS-100 6/25/2015 Reflection on “The Angry Eye”. Unfortunately, many of us close our eyes on problems around. We see only what we want to see. Some problems of society don’t concern us and we think that they don’t even exist. Unexpectedly I realized that my eyes were closed on problem of racism in the USA. I know about racism in this country because I learned about it in my history class in middle school. But I used to think about it like it happened long time ago and racism is gone nowadays. Of course I heard news about killed “colored” people but I did not deeply thought about it. I did not realize that people still suffer because of their skin color. The video “The Angry Eye” made me think about racism. First, I was shocked of the way Jane Elliot talked with white students, I felt sorry about crying girls. Then I realized that it is just an experiment and they will get credit for it, but black people should suffer from disrespectful attitude every day just because of their color. After the class I walked home and was thinking about it, I thought, “Maybe it is not that bad, maybe Jane Elliot blows problem of races and in real people forgot that they had social differences long time ago?” I was walking and thinking about it until I start to understand that even after two years in the USA I don’t know much about problems this country has. In Russia we don’t have any problems between white and black people. And how could we have this problem if we simply almost don’t have people with black skin? Well, we watch TV and we know that “colored” people exist but it is so rare to see them in real. I remember the moment when I saw black man for the first time in my life. I was 15 years old and stupid, so I looked at him like he was an alien. But I did not have any negative feelings or thoughts about him. Also, I’ve never heard even one negative word about black people from my white American friends. People usually don’t talk about it at all. So, I’ve decided to ask my friends their opinions about racism in the USA and I found out that this
  2. 2. problem still exists. People still have inequality because of skin color! I was surprised by this fact. How racism may exist in 21st century in the country made of emigrants from all over the world? Now I see that Jane Elliott does not imagine anything, it is reality. Unfortunately, people don’t learn from the history. And we need more activists like Jane Elliott; we need shocking experiments to show that we are all equal and no one is better or worse because of skin color.
