We have our landmark pilot study on race and how children see skin color. Are kids today really colorblind? Plus, major new developments on the Gulf oil spill. And the Palin factor, how much with Sarah Palin's endorsements affect key Senate primary races tomorrow?

    I am a 16 year old Junior, who is African American. I have a white mother and a black father, and watching this special tonight just made me realize how much this infects the youth. Thank you for taking your time to put a spotlight on this issue.

    @Renee, You ask children open ended questions and you sit back and listen."

    Yes, but these questions were not open ended, they were open and shut.

    i am hispanic and have 4 grown children now that when they were young they never or i never talked or mention anything about race.
    most of the hispanic my children knew, never was there a race question. so i believe that this all comes from the parent upbringings.

    But Anderson, what is the purpose of this study and why was it done? I really want you to answer that! Were there any riots anywhere between kids 5-10, racial slurs toward each other? Am I missing something here?

    I notice that all the white kids had a white interviewer, and all the black kids had a black interviewer. This may not have been a factor, since even the black kids with a black interviewer projected a white bias. But it would have been interesting to see what role this played in resonses.

    This doll study is deeply flawed. I wonder how the children would've responded if they were asked "ARE any of these kids stupid?" or "CAN you tell if one of these kids is mean?" To me, that's a way better indicator of bias. If you force a kid to make choice by asking "which one",' they will. And it may have more to do with the test itself, rather than innate bias.
