Watch Film Clip From New Doc ‘I.D. - Without Colors’ (Racial Profiling Isn't Just American)

null

You have noticed, of course, all this recent attention to

racial profiling. Not that it’s new. It’s just that the media has now discovered

that it exists.

And it’s not just an American problem. It’s everywhere,

in every country. 

And to make that clear is this new documentary titled ID Without Colors, made by Berlin-based Italian photographer Riccardo Valsecchi, a member of the Berlin

chapter of Shoot4Change, which is a

worldwide nonprofit organization made out of photographers, designers, artists

and others, who give part of their time to shooting humanitarian documentaries.

The film was inspired by the 2012 court case in Koblenz, Germany, in which a complaint

by a black German man, who was asked to show his papers while travelling by

train, was dismissed by the court. The judges ruled that “skin color was reasonable grounds

on which to carry out ID checks.

Here’s the clip:
