A recent episode of ABC's hidden-camera hit What Would You Do? featured a powerful segment about racism. An African-American actress pretending to be a stylist at Denny Moe's barbershop in Harlem berated an interracial couple (a black actor and a white actress) to see how other customers would react and whether they'd speak out.
The most touching moment of the segment comes courtesy of Marsha Bonner, an HR executive and diversity trainer who is also a lesbian. She didn't just condemn the hairstylist's racist views, she went a step further and actually tried to heal the divide.
Watch below. It's beautiful. Marsha's turn in the stylist's chair starts at approximately 5:39.
Just for fun, a What Would You Do? segment inspired by my undercover "pray away the gay" investigation at the Bachmann clinic is after the jump. (I even make a cameo appearance at 1:18.)
