Black guy takes his White girlfriend into a Harlem barbershop, gets interesting reactions

I think this video is a really interesting look into subtle racism within America and really relevant to us here in South Africa as we look to remember the values that Nelson Mandela had preached over his long and fruitful life.

The clip features a couple of scenes from a hidden video camera show in the US called “What Would You Do?” and shows a setup of a scenario where a black guy has brought his white girlfriend into a barbershop in Harlem (an area that was traditionally inhabited by non-white individuals). The girlfriend, guy and hairdresser are actors and you get to see a spectrum of how people react when placed in a situation where their values and morals get called into question.

I’d love to see a similar set up here in SA, just to prove to the World that we’re one of the most accepting nations around.

Im a guy with a very particular view of life… im not quite sure what that view is just yet, but when I find out I’ll be sure to let you know…
