          Racism Experiment

          January 12, 2006

          How can you change a racist’s thinking? How can someone who has had a racist viewpoint his entire life learn to accept a biracial granddaughter? Catch up on Charlie’s story.  

           

           

          A New Opportunity

          Charlie admitted to using the N-word and was raised to think ugly, hateful things about African-Americans. How will he do when he spends two days with a black family? 

            

           “My eyes are open now.”

            


            

          Living a Lie

          Dave was raised to believe that he was white. When he found out the truth at 26, his whole life changed. In an effort to heal from the pain, he went public with his story. Now, his family wants nothing to do with him. 

           

           What can he do now?

            


           

          Playing the Race Card?

          Cene, 18, says she’s proud to be mixed, but her mother accuses her of acting “too white” and not identifying enough with the side that raised her.

           

           

           Should Cene have to choose?
