So here latley my son (4 yr old) is interested in race. He cares what people are and wants to know.
Well at home of course its easier, I just tell him God made us different on the outside and it had more to do with where our ansestors came from than much else. I tell him inder our skin were all the same. We all have the same parts.
Well in public he likes to point out people of different races, like if they are black he says "mom do you see that black guy/lady?" Or if they are asian he points that.
The real issue ain't really what my son says, it's how some people react. He's 4 so he kinda talks loud so he's often overheard. Normally I explain that he's just figuring stuff out but occasionally people get offended.
So what would u say when others get offended and won't accept the fact he isn't racist, he's a curious 4 year old.

We went through the with my dd when she was about the same age. She noticed that some kids are brown, some kids are peach, some kids are yellow (this is what she saw them as, not what we called them). She actually thought people of different color were not as smart or as "good" as she was. It was hard to get her to realize that we are all the same. I told her that God made everyone different colors, but we are all the same. I told her that what we need and want are the same things that other people need and want. I don't recall her pointing people out, but if some one does get offended, just tell him you are trying to teach him. Kids are curious, and if need be, apologize.
