About this SegmentEducating Children on Race
Children’s minds are like wet clay, easily moldable. Unfortunately that leads them to also pick up less desirable traits from those around them. Racism isn’t an easy topic to talk to a child about however racism is taught. Just like you can teach a child to be racist, you can also teach them against it. In order for society to function at its best, it has to free itself of prejudices for different races and that means starting the teaching of acceptance and inclusiveness of other races at their most vulnerable mind state.
