The ABCs of Discrimination - DVD - Series - $595.00
These hard-hitting ABC News exposés explore all types of discrimination – on the street, at home, in the workplace, on the phone, in the courtroom – and are excellent discussion starters.
In this startling expose, ABC News Prime Time Live anchor, Diane Sawyer explores skin color prejudice in America with the help of two friends virtually identical in all respects but one-- John is white, Glen is black. Together they take part in a series of hidden camera experiments exploring people's reactions to each in a variety of situations.
Acting within the scenario of moving to a new town, Prime Time Live, undercover, follows John and Glen separately as they each try to rent an apartment, respond to job listings, purchase a car, and conduct everyday activities such as shopping. The responses in both the white and racially mixed communities are shocking and consistent. In every instance, John is welcomed into the community while Glen is discouraged by high prices, long waits, and unfriendly salespeople. Diane Sawyer concludes True Colors with a discussion with John and Glen about the outcome of these experiments and their experiences with discrimination in daily life.
The Fairer Sex?
"That man walked in and the interviewer began talking about managerial jobs. She walked in and he was talking about filing!"
Women face barriers in the workplace...but it doesn't stop there. With the aid of hidden cameras and microphones, ABC NEWS Prime Time Live went undercover to investigate discriminatory practices against women in routine, day-to-day transactions and situations. The results will surprise you. The Fairer Sex? treats the subject of discrimination in a sensitive, non-confrontational way. Viewers will welcome an opportunity to discuss this important subject.
Age & Attitudes
Compared to job-seekers under the age of forty, it takes "older" workers 64% longer to find jobs. Today there are 1.5 million older workers looking for work. Are they fossils...or the key to future profitability?
Age & Attitudes is a hard-hitting ABC NEWS Prime Time Live special report. Diane Sawyer leads an undercover team of discrimination testers to get a first hand look at what may be America's most costly waste of talent and human energy. Experts say age discrimination is even harder to detect than race or gender bias. Many job interviewers aren't even aware they are discriminating. This video and discussion guide will help viewers gain new insights and turn the tables on age discrimination. Valuable, talented workers over forty are being left on the doorsteps of the work place. Age & Attitudes will help managers and supervisors look at potential hires in a new way.
The Ugly Truth
It should come as no surprise that good-looking people may have it easier than others. Just how far good looks can take a person is the subject of The Ugly Truth.
Viewers of The Ugly Truth will learn about a painful, subtle form of discrimination with high social costs. Our society recognizes sexism and racism as forms of discrimination. But there is also widespread discrimination against people with average looks in favor of "good looking" people. In this hard-hitting ABC News 20/20 segment, veteran correspondent John Stossel uses actors and hidden cameras to expose "lookism" in typical real-life situations: on the street, on the job, in school, and in the courtroom. Why do we unconsciously reward good looking people and automatically assume they are smarter, more honest and even kinder than average looking people? Discover "The Ugly Truth" for yourself.
If you're a woman in distress... If you want to land a decent job... If you hope for better pay... If you want your students to like you... If you want to stay out of jail... It helps to be good looking.
What if you were constantly watched while you were shopping... perhaps even strip-searched for no justifiable reason? That's what some say has been happening to black men and women -- even children! Are store clerks and security guards just doing their jobs? Or, is their behavior rooted in racism?
This ABC News 20/20 program goes undercover to show you the plight of black shoppers. In stores across the country, they are under suspicion simply because of the color of their skin.
Can you tell the color of someone's skin from the tone of their voice?
It's an old story that people make judgments, even discriminate against others, based upon how they look. But there is some intriguing new research to suggest that most of us can and do make a determination about someone's race based solely upon the sound of their voice. According to the experts, discrimination is possible even if the people involved can't see each other. We all make judgments based on voices over the telephone. One of those judgments is race. Stanford linguistics professor John Baugh says that even though we're loath to admit it, most Americans can and do determine race over the telephone and most of the time we get it right. While the term may be new, “linguistic profiling” and the controversy surrounding it is not – what can be racist is how individuals act upon that information.
This 20/20 Downtown segment shows how linguistic profiling can become a form of racism when you then deny someone a job, an apartment or anything else based on what race you think they are. That’s not just wrong, it’s illegal.
