Racism is Alive, and Still Being Imprinted

This video report about student Kiri Davis's stunning documentary, A Girl Like Me, reveals a stark truth. Despite the progress that allows a black senator to be running for United States President, racism is still being imprinted on black youth throughout America. Davis recreated the famous imprinting experiment that was part of the ground-breaking Brown v. Board of Education trial from the 1950s. The outcome in 2007 was no different. Sad. Very, very sad.
