How far we haven’t come

I found this video clip on Too Sense.

This clip broke my heart. It was supposed to be better for these young people, but here they are, having the same issues of self-identity and self-love that existed when I was a child, back in the ’60s.

The doll experiment is a clear indication of our failure as a society to adequately deal with issues of race. 50 years after Brown vs Board of Education, and the results are still the same. When will it ever change?
