Prejudice is everywhere in the world. Even those who think they are above it, would fail in the dark alley test. Walking down a dark alley and approaching someone of a particular race or class, or certain dress, will usually influence your perception of danger. This happens everyday in regular life situations.
Everyday life prejudice can lead to a lot of missed relationships and learning experiences. Unity in the world would be an amazing thing if only people could lose the deeply ingrained prejudices they hold.
Momondo brought together total strangers as a challenge for DNA testing which would reveal who they really are, and really come from. Worldviews and personal bias took a sharp turn as a result.
“Would you dare to question who you really are?” That’s the question posed in the beginning.
These individuals were proud of their countries, ethnicity, and heritages. Being prejudice towards others was alirght as it was their ethnic pride which was of true importance.
Here’s part of the commentary:
“It’s easy to think there are more things dividing us than uniting us. But we actually have much more in common with other nationalities than you’d think. We asked 67 people from all over the world to take a DNA test, and it turns out they have much more in common with other nationalities than they would ever have thought.”
They took the tests, got the results, and quickly became shocked at what was revealed. For some the cultures they disliked the most, were who their genetic makeup actually revealed them to be! There is laughter over the absurdity of it all, and tears from true identities being revealed.
One woman even learns she has a cousin present, who is also being tested.
Very powerful video and certainly one that speaks volumes on the absurdity of prejudice overall when it comes to hating or stereotyping those of different color, ethnicity, or nationality.

I really hope that this thought-provoking video helps people look beyond appearances and take a step closer toward each other.
We must never forget to love our fellow human beings for who they are, regardless of their appearance, origin, or nationality.
