Anti-Racism Educator Jane Elliott: ‘There’s Only One Race. The Human Race’ | NBC BLK | NBC News

Known for her “blue-eyed, brown-eyed” experiment, where she ran her class as though the children with brown eyes were superior to children with blue eyes, educator Jane Elliott has spent the last 50 years fighting racism.

The home secretary, Sajid Javid, has announced that the government will pay up to £200m in compensation to people whose lives were damaged by the Home Office’s mistaken classification of thousands of long-term British residents as illegal immigrants.

The announcement comes almost a year after the government admitted that its treatment of the Windrush generation had been “appalling” and promised reform of its immigration system and compensation to those affected by hostile environment policies.
