Racism is only skin deep

Daryl Davis is a veteran musician who has played with legends such as Chuck Berry, Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis and who has a peculiar hobby: In his spare time, the African American man likes to befriend Neo-Nazis and members of the Ku Klux Klan. In the inspiring and entertaining ACCIDENTAL COURTESY we tag along with Davis as he seeks out white separatists and self-professed racists – many of whom have never met a black person before – in order to get to the bottom of why they can hate someone they've never met.
