I understand that it's a hard hitting study, but don't blame the kids for having bias. If they look around in a classroom or a playground or even a mall, it's the African American kids who are least well behaved and their parents really don't pay any attention. It doesn't mean that white kids are angels, but in terms of averages, you're more likely to see better behaved white and Asian kids than African American and Hispanics. This is where Bill Cosby makes perfect sense when he calls on African Americans to start teaching their kids about discipline and etiquette- and may be then kids will like them too!
a very compelling study that is taboo in society.
I am not surprised at the results of your survey. Being black in America, I have seen racism for 52 years and our children, despite the lessons on equality at home, are exposed to it everywhere at all levels in the United States. Society uses different subliminal messages to suggest that lighter is better or smarter, and that the darker is less accepted. When the successes and failures of all Americans throughout history are equally taught in our homes, schools, and churches, then will our children see all as people and not a race.
