Searching for a 1990s Anti-Discrimination Radio PSA

In the 90s, I spent a fair amount of time listening to AM radio in Michigan, and I would like to find transcripts or audio recordings of a series of anti-discrimination PSAs that I remember from those days. The general idea was that a boss in an office was trying to fill a job opening but kept turning applicants down because of over-the-top discriminatory reasons (the applicant was {a woman, black, handicapped, ...}), and eventually the business was unable to get anything done and maybe went out of business, because the prejudiced boss wouldn't fill these positions.

Help me find this Comedy World Peace PSA from my youth?

Inspired by JHarris's HA! FPP, I had a sudden flashback to a promo that appeared frequently one of those comedy cable channels back in the early nineties. It was a strange promo in that it was advertising not a show but world peace. Middle school-aged me could never figure out whether it was sincere or not. [more inside]

Did you see the cute PSA about good/bad touching for kids?

A few months ago in the daily deluge of links I see there was a very cute (possibly Australian) animated PSA for children about the difference between good and bad touching. I meant to show it to my son, but I forgot to bookmark it, and googling it does not bring up the expected results (plus just leads to awkward combination of keywords) If you saw it, do you remember where it is?

How can my 74 yr old ex husband make an informed decision about his super high PSA results?

I am good friends with my ex husband. He learned a couple of months ago that his PSA was over 20. He was also having a serious problem with his leg at the time (he had a femoral by pass surgery). That surgery went well and he has recovered from it..but during that time the high PSA results were put on the back burner until he could get through the surgery. [more inside]

"Hate... you only hurt yourself." Boom!

Searching for info or video of a 1960s-1970s animated US-televised public service announcement against 'hate.' Angry man approaches viewer, head swells and three-pronged arrows whirl in his heart. Head swells and turns red and bursts as narrator says '[when you] hate, you only hurt yourself.' Possibly American Heart Association? Will donate $10 to charity chosen by first person to point me to correct online video. Many thanks.

Brick wall PSA

A few years ago, I saw a PSA narrated by what sounded like a black man in his 40s or 50s. It described how one summer he and his brother were told by their father to build a brick wall for no apparent purpose. He talked about how hot it was, how they didn't spend any time with their friends, and they had to rebuild parts that weren't up to snuff. At the end, the father said something like, "Now don't ever tell me there's anything you can't do." I loved the ad, and was wondering whether it was available online. Any ideas?
