    This was amazing showing that you really shouldn't judge someone based on there ethnicity or before getting to know them. I made me laugh at the end because the parents just looked so shocked.

    This commercial is very beneficial. It shows how people can judge you and assume so many things about a person with just the color of your skin and that not all people of that race are the same because they're all different. It also shows that you should never do that because you have no idea who they are and if they assume that about you they can assume that same about you because of your skin color.

    This video made me feel a mix of happy and sad. It made me happy to know that this kind gentleman had given the little girl her bone marrow, but it made me feel sad that her mom didn't even want her to sit next to him, before she found out the truth.

    This form of propaganda was much more beneficial than harmful, because it shows that unconscious racism is a problem. In the video, a family with a little girl is sitting in the waiting room after the girl's operation, and the family moves away from someone of Middle Eastern descent. Afterwards, the family finds out that the Middle Eastern man was their girl's bone marrow donor, which shows that people shouldn't make judgements based on people's race.

    This ad shows how people can judge other people so easily just by their religion or skin color. The family was scared of the man and did not like him but then finds out that he is the man who donated his own bone marrow for their daughter and might have even saved her life.

    This video shows that people should not judge other people based on race, religion, gender, or anything else. You don't know about their lives and they could end up being a good friend or even saving your life.

    This ad really makes you think about how you judge people that you haven't even met. I think that it really makes you think about how badly we're treating people even though we didn't even know them.
