This is what a 6 year old that I babysit said this morning. My son reacted and said" What are you a racist or something?"The child responded, "Yup". I said, "Well, how would it make you feel if someone didn't like you just because you are white?" He laughed and said " I don't care".
I don't know where this child gets it from.I've talked to his mom about it, she's exasperated with it herself. They have an 8 yr old that comes over too and he's never spoken like that.The 6 yr old draws Nazi signs everywhere.When we paint, thats what he makes.The family doesn't seem prejudice at all,its just the 6 yr old. The mom has talked to him,I've talked to him.He even said he doesnt like the president because he is black.
My question is, if kids don't pick this stuff up from home..where the heck do they get it from? Its so sad to think that this kind of stuff is still so embedded in society that a 6yr old picks it up. :(

Friends and television have more of an impact on children. I have noticed that if my kids see a kid their age doing something on tv, then they think it is acceptable. He needs to be around kids of all races. Maybe if you invite a kid or two to your house, who are not white, and make him get along with them, he might start to realize that people of colors and walks of life are indeed just as good as white people. Good luck, I know I can't stand that type of thinking, it drives me crazy.
