About the Series:
In this 5-part series, Harvard Professor Michael Sandel challenges participants with difficult moral dilemmas, asking: What’s the right thing to do? Participants are made to think about subjects including immigration, robotization, discrimination, income inequality, and privacy. Will they stick to their convictions or do they possess the capability to reconsider them?
About the Episode:
Is discrimination always unjustified? Danny Ghosen, Hajar Alariachi, and others go in search of an answer to the question: To what extent can and must you treat people equally? Discrimination is a 45-minute documentary and part of the PBS series “What’s the Right Thing to Do?”. This episode examines topics such as sexism, racism, and lookism, and an employer’s right to hire (or not hire) for specific positions based on a candidate’s physical characteristics.
