Entry Task: Get out your notebook and write a response to the following.
Imagine a world where everyone with blue eyes got to give orders to everyone with brown eyes. If you're born with blue eyes, you get the good jobs, the good schools, the good houses, and all the fair trials you could want. If you have brown eyes—too bad. It's menial labor, rudimentary education, and a house by the dump. How does this impact your sense of truth, liberty, and justice? Explain your reasoning and be prepared to share your answer.
