The Purpose of Our clip… • Q: Do you have any ideas on why we chose an episode of “That’s so Raven”? • A: It shows that the store owner will not allow black people to be employees at the store. It displays discrimination. Just like it did in that time period, a manager of the 21 century is discriminating against black people.
