In society, people of color face a similar reality as the predators in Zootopia. Many people of color and stereotyped as animals who are stupid and violent for no reason and that it is in their DNA.

When learning about and analyzing acts of mass atrocity during World War II, hundreds if not thousands of questions can be asked trying to gain a deeper understanding for their actions. Probably one of the most intriguing thoughts to ponder is what leads individuals and societies as a whole to descend to such a level of cruelty.
