We are all the same: John Barnes
Play • 1 hr 4 min

John Barnes is a former Liverpool, Watford and England footballer who would like people to think hard about discrimination and its origins.

He has a new book out - The Uncomfortable Truth about Racism - which explores the human propensity for creating illusory hierarchies in our minds and putting people on pedastals. John's point is - whatever our background - deep down we are all the same. While we are all prone to mental conditioning, we can move beyond it.
