The Kite Runner

Read from The Kite Runner

Watch excerpt from the film

Questions from the reading and the film (threaded discussion on the white board)

Discuss: Assef says to Amir, "Afghanistan is the land of Pashtuns. We are the true Afghans, not this flatnose here. His people pollute our homeland. They dirty our blood." How does Assef's attitude compare to some of the individuals or groups we have learned in our history classes? (the KKK, Hitler, etc.) How do these attitudes lead to hate crimes or even genocide?
