I think people should ask those parents who teach their kids racial prejudice, why they do it. Unfortunately, many children are taught racial prejudice from home. Such is the case in this Rosedale, Queens, NY documentary. Where you see adults and children from that community spewing racial hatred/insults. (See below link.) This happened one town from where I grew up. Lots of my friends who walked through that neighborhood, were chased with bats from members of that community years ago. https://youtu.be/4hfJ2WV6M0M Sadly that’s the kind of damage racial hatred can do to children, where they go out and repeat what their parents or community teaches them, instead of educating them to treat those who may have a different shade than them, with the same kind of respect and common decency they would want others to give them. So given the time period Jane began educating children about how wrong it is to hate others, based on skin color, I will always give her credit for making the effort to change minds and educate those within her community about the [Edited 9/8/20 9:33am]


Yes, I agree. My youngest niece is black and adopted. My brother and sis-in-law were her foster parents since she was 3 days old and then adopted her when she was 5 or 6. She had no idea she was any different from her parents or siblings (my bro is Latino and his wife is fair with blonde hair and blue eyes) so the kids have a mixed look. Some little kid in the park pointed out to my niece that she was different "Why isn't your mom black?" - that little kid was taught that people are different and learned it from home.



I’m sure that won’t be the last time your niece will get that question asked. Kids are curious and will boldly ask questions or say things they’ve heard from home about other racial groups.

THAT^ second point is still right! "Race" is a socially construct that was invented within the late 15th to early 16th century by white European men. So excuse you, but that is the ugly truth. Black, brown, red, & yellow folks never invented that nonsense.

So why teach it to young kids who aren't even racist to start with?

ANSWER: To undo the damages that was already happen on the part of those kids' [dis]respected parents. Remember, parents are suppose to be the real "role model" for their kids. But if some of those same parents are teaching their kids false doctrine/dogma about "racial supermacy", that is a problem that need to be address by good human beings that knows that way of life is bullshit AND illogical.
