Anti-Racism Activist and Educator Jane Elliot
Anti-racism activist and educator Jane Elliot speaks to white citizens on receiving the same treatment as black citizens.
"I want every white person in this room, who would be happy to be treated as this society in general treats our citizens, our black citizens. If you as a white person would be happy to receive the same treatment that our black citizens do in this society - please stand! - You didn't understand the directions. If you white folks want to be treated the way blacks are in this society - stand! - Nobody is standing here. That says very plainly that you know what's happening. You know you don't want it for you. I want to know why you are so willing to accept it or to allow it to happen for others." - Jane Elliot.
