Summary: Follows host Paul Duddridge as he pushes aside society's taboos to find out what race really is. Duddridge organizes a mini-Olympics based on racial identity to demonstrate the fluidity of the concept, he notes that Jews and Arabs will be on the same team, and the participants poke fun at their own tendency to stereotype. With significant input from sociologists, anthropologists, and authors including John Baugh (Beyond Ebonics), Kwame Anthony Appiah (The Ethics of Identity) and Jon Entine (Abraham's Children: Race, Identity and the DNA of the Chosen People), the video examines some common misconceptions about race.
