First of all before anyone yells at me, I'm not at all a racist. My neice is half and half, well my son just started kindergarten, and he calls the black people brown people, Like when he's telling me about his day, he'll say 'you know, Nathan he's a brown kid with the black hair." What should I say to him, should I change the way he says or sees things?

I would just rephrase it for him..
Tell him that he does not need to say he is brown... The boy has a name..and that is what he needs to call him..
He was describing the boy to you though..so I would not take it too personal..
He is young and with your guidance, he will learn..

FYI to the anon who thinks she is an expert on the "correct terms" ... Blck people from Jamaica don't like to be referred to as African American because they aren't. And whatever terms you think are polite this year will be considered very rude 30 years from now.
