After our discussion this morning in "World Religions & Eastern Philosophies," regarding the social hierarchy and caste system in India, I found this extremely touching video project that comments on the plight of the Dalits (Indians deemed to be "classless" due to their "impure" nature).

Awareness is the first step to understanding. Tell your friends what you've learned.
