Racism is the issue and diversity is the experiment in this episode. Jonathan's racist cousin Scottie is visiting. He had an accident with a chemistry set and is blindfolded. Knowing that Scottie is racist, Jonathan's dad concocts an experiment that tests to see if Scottie can change his heart. After having so much in common and becoming friends with Davey, the blindfold comes off and Scottie's prejuidice dominates him. Angry because Davey is white, he storms out of the doctor's office. Meanwhile, Goliath has been a little prejuidice as well. He does not like another dog because the dog is different. The difference is that the dog has spots. Eventually, both Scottie and Goliath realize that true colorblindness is when you look at the heart instead of looking, and judging falsely about someone just because their skin color is a little different.moreless
Before Archie Bunker! Before EastSide/West Side!, While the south is under seige, the series has tackle an issue many television shows has ignored and that is Racism! The story centers around a African-American boy name Scottie. His eyes were injury in a chemistry accident and had to be blindfolded. Davey and his father tried to break Scottie's racism. I can never forget the scene when the blindfold is finally removed and he lashes out at Davey for being white, He stormed out of the office, leaving Davey in tears. I believe that it's one of the best 15 minute episode of the series. An issue that is tackled long before any establshed show.moreless
