Virginia high school nixes 'white guilt' video after criticism

- An animated film designed as a lesson in "racial discourse" for students at a Virginia high school will not be shown after it made students uncomfortable and drew criticism from parents who called it "white guilt."

The video was shown at Glen Allen High School in Henrico during two assemblies for Black History Month and depicts several runners on a track, with black runners facing insurmountable obstacles while white runners are unimpeded.

Officials said in a statement Tuesday that the video, "The Unequal Opportunity Race," was a presentation involving "American history and racial discourse." The added, "A segment of the video was one component of a thoughtful discussion in which all viewpoints were encouraged. As always, we are welcoming of feedback from students and their families, and we address concerns directly as they come forward."
