  • - [Narrator] Racism is treating people unfairly

  • just because of the color of their skin.

  • That's wrong and unfair.

  • Let me try to explain.

  • I remember a time when some kids

  • were pretending to play superheroes.

  • - [Girl] Look at my cape!

  • - [Narrator] Sounds like fun, right?

  • - [Girl] (laughing) Woo hoo!

  • Oh, I'll choose the pink one.

  • - [Narrator] Each kid knew exactly

  • which superhero they wanted to be.

  • - Yay!

  • - Come on, let's go!

  • - I'm gonna catch you.

  • - (grunts) I'm the strongest in the world.

  • (laughing)

  • - [Blonde Girl] Fly to the sky!

  • (evil laughing)

  • - (laughs) You're so fast. - [Narrator] Well, two kids

  • wanted to be the same superhero.

  • Kevin turned to Brandon and said,

  • "You can't be a superhero.

  • "Superheroes are supposed to be white."

  • That made Brandon feel confused, and angry,

  • sad.

  • (laughing)

  • Racism hurts, and it's wrong.

  • But Brandon thinks superheroes

  • can come in all skin colors.

  • Making a judgment based on the color

  • of a person's skin is unfair and wrong.

  • (laughing)

  • So Brandon stood like a superhero and said,

  • "I could be any superhero.

  • "My superhero is black."

  • - [Blonde Girl] Oh man, cool!

  • - [Brunette Girl] Another superhero.

  • - [Narrator] His friend stood up and declared,

  • "Superheroes can be any color."

  • - [Brandon] Haha.

  • (grunts)

  • Haha!

  • (cheering)

  • - [Blonde Girl] Yay, superheroes!

  • - [Brandon] All right.

  • - I'm sorry, you're right.

  • Superheroes can be any color.

  • Let's play!

  • - [Brandon] Yeah!

  • (cheering)

  • - [Narrator] It's important to help children

  • feel empowered and become upstanders

  • for themselves and one another.
