  • Maybe in some families? In my experience (just mine, not like national statistics), men have shown more racism than women.

  • I think it's equal.
    Children learn by example. If either parent is racist then their child will grow up thinking that it's ok or right to be racist too.

    I don't think a racist mom would have more influence than a racist dad.

  • I think its equal, but when the child grows up they can still change their thinking..

  • I would say yes. It's going to be different for every family, but generally I find that moms are more accepting and nurturing and just want their children to be with someone who loves them and takes good care of them. More often than not, dads are the racist ones who will "disown" their child for dating outside their race, etc.

  • What?? What does racism have to do with gender? A mom could be just as racist as a dad.
