Editor's Note: You wrote, we listened! Most of your feedback was on the oill spill and our landmark Kids and Race series. You thanked Anderson for keeping the oil leak in the news and are still giving suggestions on how to stop it.
I don't understand the dynamic forces behind the oil spill. Why does the oil continue to gush? Is there something there pumping the oil out? Is it forced out by pressure beneath the earth? Can you explain what is causing this calamity?
I live about 3 miles from the beach and we are beginning to smell oil in the air. Can someone tell us if this is dangerous to breathe?
I deeply believe children choose white to dark colored people as good and bad not because they are racist but because they have always felt afraid of black, men in black etc, darkness.... and white lightness, angels, goodness, etc.
It would seem highly relevant to conduct your tests on children and race in countries such as Norway, Finland and Nigeria and Kenya. I have worked many years in Africa, and I suspect you might get some surprises in doing such studies.
Has anyone questioned the methodology behind the race study? Why must the colors be opposing sides? Yesterday you showed a snippet of a boy who kept answering that he had no preference and finally after many questions, he fell into the trap of taking sides and answered questions that he had preferences. We must take into account that this boy is very young and pressuring him to make a prejudiced remark is really not conducive to an impartial study.
