Prejudice as portrayed in pop culture

23 Mar

In their AOS Prejudice unit, my Year 10 students have focused their discussion on racism.  This is because racism is the form of prejudice that is most clearly demonstrated in Deadly, Unna?

However, I think it is important for students to understand that prejudice is not limited to race.  To illustrate this I want to show them a clip from the television show Empire.   This clip represents Jamal’s official coming out as juxtaposed with flashbacks depicting his father’s homophobic attitude.
