In the video, the narrator states “immigrants were learning that whiteness was more than skin color. It was the privilege of opportunity. And above all, exclusive.” This is a very powerful statement that the narrator makes because firstly, it shows how immigrants who are experiencing a new environment or perhaps experience a culture shock LEARN that color is

We all have one thing in common we live in a great country called America. In the past racism has been a big issue in America and still is today. I think it’s really sad because we are all people and have loved ones and there are no two of the exact same people we are all different. I realize America was awful to colored people but that 's history and we need to learn from it and move on to do better and make this country a better place.

Both Staples and Cofer are representatives of ethnic minorities; Staples is Afro American and Cofer is Latin American. They both are successful scholars and earned their Ph.D. after the years at the universities. Another thing, which also unites these two, is racial stereotypes.

Unfortunately, no matter how hard one from ethic minority tries to assert oneself in this world, he/she will be always misjudged from the perspective of racial stereotypes.
