Default Racism is natural, anti racism is not

July 13th, 2012, 11:42

•Younger children spend more time staring at different races from their own when presented with photographs
•Toddlers notice race more than gender
•Kids pick out friends based on skin color

•Kids’ brains categorize world and assume people that look like them are more similar to them
•Conversations about race are difficult for parents
•Why point race out if it doesn’t matter? (Everyone is equal) But science says in absence of communication, kids will make errors.
•Self-segregation at schools goes up as school diversity goes up

points ripped from:….11/racism.html

So what do you think about parents teaching their kids and when is it too much? Is it the same as sexism to some extent? I assume so.
