At 82, welcome Jane Elliott; on her very first Live Video Hangout on the Philippe Matthews Show!

She is an internationally known teacher, lecturer, diversity educator, and recipient of the National Mental Health Association Award for Excellence in Education, exposes prejudice and bigotry for what she says it is, “An irrational class system based upon purely arbitrary factors. And if you think this does not apply to you. . . you are in for a rude awakening.” 

Literally, the day after the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr, this third grade school teacher devised the controversial and startling, “Blue Eyes/Brown Eyes” exercise ( This, now famous, exercise labels participants as inferior or superior based solely upon the color of their eyes and exposes them to the experience of being a minority. Everyone who is exposed to Jane Elliott’s work, be it through a lecture, workshop, or video, is dramatically affected by it.

“It won’t help much to be prepared to face Jane Elliott. This elderly woman will tear down any shield. Even we, the spectators in BLUE EYED, can’t get rid of this feeling of uneasiness, embarrassment, anxiety and utterly helpless hatred when she starts keeping people down, humiliating them, deriding them, incapacitating them. No doubt about this: for three quarters of the time in this documentation Jane Elliott is the meanest, the lowest, the most detestful, the most hypocritical human being hell has ever spit back on earth. But she should be an example for all of us”. – Stuttgarter Zeitung

  1. Start watching at about the 14-minute mark. She basically links this wave of medieval anti-abortion laws to the fear whites have of no longer being the majority in the US. And she said it three years ago!

  2. People like Jane is the TRUE reason I can't go out and be a full on racist.I know there are good white people out there.The media just doesn't want to show them. That's not the agenda they want to push.i do believe someday the world will become a completely equal playing field of equality for ALL nationality. May not happen in my generation, but with the notion children aren't born racist, there's at least a chance.

  3. I loved this lady the day I saw her on Oprah's show, n even back then the truth they still was stuck not knowing what task were at hand, n she truly was putting a "MARK ON HISTORY"; 2- show them up for who they really are, she's my White Hope here and every where else. I'm 1000 with her on taking the subject matter at hand straight to Congress, her and Farrahkan, professor James Small, Bro.Umar Johnson, blessings to bother Dick Gregeroy we've sadly lost, Bro.Leo Mahummad, ect,,, we'd love to see the WORLD'S greatest Debate on these subjects she's already Exposed. Great video

  4. WOW! Talking about commitment to Humanity…. she is saying you can’t unring a bell or unsee a horror.
    Many Blessings brother and many Blessings to Mrs. Elliott.
    I have done other kinds of work in bring awareness to things we choose to not see, and race relations I have studied intensely, but I could NEVER get away with teaching race relations like Ms Elliott which I think is a great model because of being African American and female….. I would have to create something so different or have a white counterpart to legitimize the work. It’s exhausting to know that at each turn to be heard or to bring awareness if you are in a skin that is seen as inferior the hoops and creativity you must bring to make It palatable for white folks is exhausting and frustrating. Please don’t mistake this for victimhood it simply is a reality.
    Mrs Elliot has been threatened, disowned and everything else, so think of an AfricanAmerican female bringing education about race relations in the same manner.
    I believe the outcome could be even more harmful.
    Bless her and her courage and fortitude to do this work.

  5. OK Ms. Jean Elliott, we understand, your emotions about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. So, how do you feel psychological and emotional about Malcolm X and Nat Turner? Black panther and black revolutionary group 🌐 globally And even Honorable Mosiah Garvey who was deported back to Jamaica while he was working on rebuilding the black nation on area like , economy, empower le black markets business and vision, over all the black nation world wide?

  6. "She had best have on some safety glasses" I love this woman

    Edit: that thing she said at the end about not having a choice: "activism is the rent I pay for living on this planet" -Alice Walker
