(Original Air Date: 11/13/06) After nine days in The Dr. Phil House, have these guests let go of their prejudices, or are they still living with hate? Dr. Phil assigns more tasks that force the group to work together and learn even more about each other. White supremacist Gary has to cook dinner for B. and her African-American friends who come to visit. Initially angry, Gary has an enlightening conversation at the dinner table. Then, Dr. Phil sends John and Staci out on assignments together. First, to the gym for a workout, and then, after Staci gets a 300-pound makeover, the two head out in public, so she can see what it’s like to walk in John’s shoes. Next, with the help of a Hollywood makeup artist, Gary is transformed into a black man, and after some cultural coaching from B., heads to two different neighborhoods as an African-American male. With intense one-on-one time with Dr. Phil and some surprise family visits, these houseguests leave with different perspectives, better attitudes and plans for a peaceful future. Talk about the show here.

STACI

Staci, I do give you alot of credit for your courage to let them dress you up that way and go out in public.  I do agree with you that you did look like John's girlfriend.  And I think it did alot for John to see you like that too.  I think he enjoyed it.  That was such a good idea.  And a valuable lesson!

11/13 The Dr. Phil House: House of Hatred, Part 3

Quote From: purplepenny

I'm just saying that, just because a river has the same names as possibly fictional rivers in the Bible doesn't mean they are the actual rivers. I believe these rivers are named after the Bible story. Not the other way around.

That's all I was saying.

You know, I thought about it some more later, and figured that was what you meant.

 

I'm still curious as to why anyone would be ANGRY at the thought of life beginning in Africa. I know you don't have the answer to this :) but really, why does it matter?

House of Hatred

 I  want to point out something to Gary. He told B to go back to Africa. To start with African black people did not come to America by choice they were kidnapped from their country and brought here. To all of the races that were born here "this is their country" And unless he is an American Indian, we can say the same to him. Why doesn't he go back to the country his ancestors came from. I am a white female and I like all races. Please remember there is good and bad people in every race.

We have problems on both sides...........................

I was wondering the exact same thing...She called white people sociopaths. That's a very horrid HORRID thing to say.

I have a question......

So, what do you call a white person who is at the opposite end of the scale? I think it must be a type of prejudice  (?), but I absolutely love black people! They are funny, and talented and I love their style and music (some- not rap ).  From the time I was a kid I always wanted to adopt a black child. I think (most) black babies are the cutest , most adorable little dolls I've ever seen!  I didn't grow up with the kind of prejudice that I see in the U.S. and I really do have a very difficult time understanding it. Okay, let me have it. I know I'm probably gonna get an earful,because I am smart enough to realize that I'm probably just as bad as someone who hates blacks. But, I'm just trying to be honest and understand myself.

attn: dr. phil

I have just finished watching your Dr. Phil house of hatred.  I  understand what you are trying to do, but when you sent Gary out as a black man that was not true to form.   I am sorry but if any person was standing on the street corner asking me what the time was or for directions I personally would give a response.  If someone was standing on the street corner asking me or saying "that smells good" or "Hey, where did you get that" I'm sorry but I don't think that I would give a response.  I was raised as a Army brat so I was raised not to be worried about if a person was white, black, red or green.  I personally do not care if people are gay, fat, skinny or anything else.  Who cares.  If the person is kind, funny, and willing to treat others with respect then that is all that matters.
