DD the day after the election was asking me in the car ride why the "brown kids" couldn't go to school with the "brown teachers" and the "white kids" go to a different school. I have never taught her differences in skin color...ever ever. I was shocked, and told her it was important for us all to be friends no matter what we looked like on the outside. I feel like I should address this issue again.
I feel like I should add that one of her best friends in school that she always plays with is African American, but she goes to a school that is predominantly Hispanic and does not have any Hispanic friends.

I would talk to her about how there are many different skin colors. What matters is how kind a person is on the inside. I like ginger0104 answer.
