Well, this is a strange coincidence. In the past few minutes, I’ve read two political articles that have to do with eye color. The first is about Brazilian President Lula’s remarks to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown about who’s to blame for the global financial crisis.
The second is a profile of a schoolteacher in the Los Angeles Times. The teacher, Jane Elliott, conducted an experiment with her pupils after Martin Luther King’s death to teach them what racism was. For a single day, she treated her students with brown eyes better than those with blue eyes.
Who knew eye color could be such a catalyst for news?
