Where exactly do you think these kids get their opinions from?

This is horrible, no one should think they are ugly or bad just because of their skin tone.

How is this connected in any way to the celebration of a black president?

For the record...Mr.Obama is as much a white man as he is a black man.

Disturbing video.Someone is seriously slacking in the parenting dept.

I don't see how a black president is going to change the way people raise their children. Just like the pp said these kids get these ideas from their parents, their families from people they are surrounded by... not by the president or his color. I'm sorry but black, white or green I would question what kind of parents these kids have, and perhaps what they have been exposed to to form such thoughts in their heads.

Having a black President offers a completely new outlook for children who are told they don't have a future because they are black. We are constantly being shown this image of black people as drug addicts, alcoholics, abusers, etc...and kids are very perceptive to this. There are still far too many white people who hold this racist outlook on black people that their parents and grandparents had. Being the President is like the ultimate achievement, its such a respectable position and for children to see that it is not restricted from them because they are black, brown, orange...whatever color, this is a reason to celebrate!

I'll admit this video is upsetting to all parents. But what does this have to do with a 1/2 white 1/2 black president? I'm sick of people saying Obama is black. I as well as everyone else can see that. He's American, that's all that matters...

 I think the most important question is why is it important at all that he is black? or as Mamadixon pointed out half white?

Is this where so many people derive their self importance? where is it going to lead all these people when/if he is a failure?

Im not sure at all that we can find any value with substance by claiming victory for a race, especially when the nation is sinking like the Titanic.

TV, the media, other kids, their parents.
