When Words Hurt [electronic resource]

Cambridge Educational (Firm)
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
When friends or siblings argue they might say hurtful things to each other, but it is not the same as "hate speech" or racist speech. In a series of engaging interviews, this video, hosted by MTV News anchor Suchin Pak, shows young people how to distinguish between unkind words and "hate speech," pointing out along the way the sometimes subtle characteristics of such verbal attacks. The program is designed to engage students' sense of social responsibility by creating an awareness of personal and cultural diversity, developing empathy for victims of these hateful words.
