what type of work will help me become self reliant

Please pull this video ASAP. Yikes. While I appreciate the Church's attempt to include a greater diversity with this video, it is unfortunate that the outcome instead yields a stereotyping of race and culture...and the end result is counter productive. It reminds me of a recently ill conceived Red Cross poster on swim safety that made the headlines a while back. For example, why are there no Caucasian people that are in the class who are struggling with self reliance (why only minorities)? Why is the Asian person the one with the higher educational level (plays with stereotype), and the African American the one with out any admirable job skills (again plays to prejudice and stereotypes) and the Hispanic individual is the one who "cleans hotels" (again plays to prejudice and stereotypes). I think a better casting and better situationally applied script would server a better purpose to the intended audience. My three teenage daughter were mortified after having watched this in a church class setting. I hope this feedback is helpful.
