- Potentially Harmful Content This video has not been reviewed in full by the Ephemeral Film Wiki. The program begins with white adult moderator selecting Nii Tettah Quao, the only panelist with black skin, to ask: "have you got any prejudices?" Constantinos Fliakos then volunteers his prejudices are not ignorant and not biased, but instead a result of his rational knowledge and experience. He suggests that his prejudice toward the people of the continent of Africa is based upon his impression of their lower income and attitudes. He asserts his prejudice is natural, and not a result of bias. This is just the first two minutes of a 60s era program intended for young audiences.
