yes, but it does work both ways, I was treated brutally FOR being "white" with my bi-racial children. To this day, it still happens with my grand children.

In the 1980's research consistently demonstrated increased levels of discrimination correlating with increased levels of skin darkness--so sad that we continue to communicate that racist message.

This is so sad. Color should not matter, but they start out young. These children need more love and encouragement. I hope they get it before they grow up. Children learn what they live. Help them.

When I first saw this, I was sure it must be from the sixties, but no it's now. Reflect on the extreme feelings brought on by the election of Obama. Long before he had assumed the presidency he was reviled and called names, that goes on today. It's normal for republicans and democrats to disagree, it' not normal for this level of pure hate, something else is at work.

This is a sad indictment of American society. Everything needs to be done to raise the self-esteem of non-white children. They have so much to offer and should be made aware of the contribution they can make in the right circumstances: i.e. given equal opportunities.
I'm not sure about the relevance to Obama. I seem to remember George W Bush being called every name in the book.

I recall my cousins daughter getting caught by my Uncle rubbing her arm with a cloth so hard it was bleeding. He stopped her then asked why she was doing that as the cloth was soaked in bleach.

She said, because I want to be white like my Mother. My cousin had married a darker Hispanic man and she did not feel pretty even though no one in the family made her feel less than, but obviously she was getting the message from the outside world.

That was back in the 1980's obviously our society is not changing enough if these children are still feeling this way.

I feel that we in NYC no longer have these racist feelings, at least I don't see it except in the NYPD stop and frisk programs and the criminal justice system where if the dolls were placed before those security guards and judges, I believe they'd respond in the same way that young child did! How sad that in this millennium there are still people that see shades of brown first and character last, if at all!

Kit B (276)

I think the open dialogue is somewhat different than it once was. Children respond to unspoken more than the spoken word, if they little sensitive alarms tell them they are "less than" it can carve an impression for life.

I have lived through many presidents both republican and democrat, though it was true Bush was mocked for seeming less than bright, that didn't begin until after more than few goofs on his part.

One of the things that I enjoyed was watching my children make friends at school because they came from all around the world. There was no racism.

When we moved, the schools were predominantly white and when a coloured family moved into the areas they were welcomed by the children. However, we did suffer bitterly from anti-Semitism and still do. This PC world will take an 83 year old woman into custody for shouting, "Go back home" to a group of coloured men but they can spit at Jews, beat them up, graffiti the synagogues and damage the cemeteries and nothing is said.

Any form of racism is terrible but it is worse when it comes from your own or from those who should know better. Those that denounce it here against coloured people, which they are quite right to do, are the loudest when attacking anything Jewish.

G.M. how dare you speak for those of us who loathe racism or anti semitism! I know of no one in my extensive group of friends or social group who are anti racism and who are against jews! please provide me with actual data and facts, otherwise you are projecting a very warped perspective and that is not acceptable!Racism is a very insidious thread woven tightly into the fabric of America. For people of colour, they do NOT have to say or do, their "colour" speaks for them before they say or do anything. Racism was hiding under the surface until president Obama became president. After his election the hate and prejudice came out in full force. The senator from North Carolina showed his prejudice when he shouted at president Obama "you lie" he left unsaid "boy" but it was hanging over his message. Jan brewer the Arizona joke for a governor would never have had the nerve to put her finger in georgie porgies face. The arse wipe knew there would be ramifications had she done so. Racism is even in our language, white is always better. Even black dogs at shelters are less adoptable than any other color of dogs.

Any racism is bad. So I wonder why I experienced lots and lots of Jewish racism.....shouldn't they know better ?
Racism is very common among Jews; it seems their racism is just as bad as they shout "anti - semetism", if one dares to name the child by it's name. I only mention it here, because I've heard Jews on so many occasions - being Jewish is no excuse to be racist !!
My experience in the U.S. is that black people are not treated equal to white. Not in the forces, not in daily life.

Noted. On the flip side of the coin--does anyone remember one of the CBS "Special Reports" way back in the 60's....I watched it as a child. Because of the way African-American children felt about themselves, and seeing the negativity toward them at that time, there was some kind of program that went into public schools and worked with them to help them achieve feelings of good self-worth. What I clearly remember from it was them repeating, "I am black and beautiful," amongst other techniques I can't remember. It obviously struck me at that time, as a child watching with curiosity.....

Oh, this just breaks my heart! This exposes the damage racism inflicts on children in this country. We have to correct this. Every child needs to know that the entire human race originated in Africa. Every child need to celebrate his or her ancestry, culture, and individuality. (n, p, t)

Aurea, if you don't like the charge, tough. I speak with experience of the people on this board who are anti-Semitic and loudly so. You do not know what your friends think, only what they say, not the same thing. And, as you are not Jewish, you will not know what it is to be prejudiced against. So, I suggest that you keep to what you do know which does not appear to be much when confronted with anti-Semitism.


Gillian M (218)
Tuesday May 28, 2013, 3:50 pm
Bryna, there is a suggestion that, some 20,000 years ago, we are all descended from one male, genetic Adam. I wonder if that is true.

I can't say remove the skin and we are all the same as there are some slight physical details which are different but we all have the same general physical appearance, internal organs and skeleton. We can suffer from the same illnesses and have fertile offspring when we marry other races. These are all biological factors which show that we are the same species.

What differentiates us from other animals is our ability to torture each other and animals.

Much as I would wish we lived in a colorblind, race-blind, gender-blind world--we don't. We've come a long way in terms of equality. But as children are often the best barometers of how far we've come; I think this means we have a long way to go yet.

National Geographic has done several programs supporting that less than 1% of our DNA has anything to do with race or skin color. My mitochrondrial DNA is haplogroup 2Na which goes back 64,000 years to one of 2 African tribes before their migration. That makes my mitochrondrial DNA origins black (which most of us are) and I am very proud of my heritage plus as a side note I am fair with blue eyes. I really really think all black children including biracial groups (based on this sad video) should know what a miniscule amount of our DNA has anything to do with skin color or race. This video shows how harmful it is to deny children scientific knowledge in favor of creationism and ignorance that the world is only 5,000 years old. Thank You Kit for this video. Noted

Robyn, I have a memory from my childhood after Idi Amin threw the Asians out of Uganda. An Asian family moved in next door to my family and we all became friends.

I spent all of my free time with one of the daughters and can remember being jealous of their permanent sun tan and beautiful glossy black hair. In fact, I still am especially when they wear chunky jewellery and saris, they look stunning.

This is sad and shocking to see for sure, but were the questions the right ones to ask in the first place? They were mostly an either/or question, meaning, to the child, that one answer was right and the other wrong, and there was no inbetween or other possibility (such as 'they're both pretty', or 'they look almost the same' or they're neither good or bad') And, we don't know the colour of the questioner, which might also have had an influence on the children's answers.

But yes, still sad to see.

This little video is about how minority children are made to feel inferior by societal norms. It has nothing to do with religious beliefs nor ideas about evolution. Being completely honest we all must admit that within each of us are seeds of prejudice, how we deal with them, how we teach our children is the only way we can ever hope to overcome the roots of bigotry.

G.M. Bullshit! I all to well know what racism means! I happen to be a 5'10, blonde, green eyed MEXICAN! I do not have an accent in speaking American, worked very hard to eradicate the accent. So when I am around the "white" world people ASSuME that I am one of them. They err and say things in front of me that has caused more than once for me to verbally confront them on their stupid, racist view points. By the way I do NOT listen to what people say, talk is cheap. Actions are what I do PAY a lot of attention too. Regardless of your opinion or mine the true issue is HOW THIS YOUNG CHILD ALREADY HAS A VERY NEGATIVE AND SKEWED vision of what it is to be of colour! My god daughter who is of colour and attends a very expensive private school just recently had her first brutal affront with racism. She was out in gym class and she tried to whistle, was unable to do so. She commented out loud to herself "darn I cannot whistle" her 14 year school mate responded with his distorted racist thinking by saying "just think of sucking a penis, isn't that what you black girls are known for" this is VERBATIM QUOTE! The hurt she is going thru is beyond my comprehension, but as her god mother I would dearly love to clean the boys mouth out with feces. Legal consequences be damned. Racism is just racist against people who do not fit the "norm" and anti semitism is a part of the whole racist idealogy.

By the way my name AUREA is the chemical table for GOLD, is a family tradition for our lost heritage! Yup, generations back my family were Basque Sephardic converts.

Bully? Every one knows the bully on Care2, don't look in a mirror, Gillian. No one cares what your religion is, but you assume that any one that disagrees with you must in turn be anti-Semitic. Nothing could be further from the truth, but then you don't actually allow the truth into your attacks.

The only way you can fight racism is by example. None of my grandchildren are "white". None of them condemn me for being "white". Our friends are mixed and I live in a mixed community. Mixed can work and work well but you can't be mixed in an all white world that doesn't work so well. BUT you have to be able to cross cultures to make mixed work and that means you can't carry prejudice with you when you enter another world. Culture is a human construct. Love is universal. Fight and protect your culture and you will lose. Learn to love and everyone wins.

All children need examples like's Fred's in their history books of persons like themselves that made major historic contributions (CA now has laws requiring that including disability and LGBTQ). Demographers say CA is more multicultural with more bicultural and multicultural families than elsewhere in the nation so I guess I should realize how much the stories of "I knew one of the good ones" stories that are universally recognized to be condescending with racist/discriminatory belief roots her might not yet be the norm in places without as strong nondiscrimination laws.

This is not about turning this thread into a forum for personal snarky comments, it's supposed to be to express opinions and ideas. It doesn't matter whether we agree or not. It's supposed to be about being able to comment about how we feel. Not taking shots at each other.

In Australia I think it no different to other places. If a white person makes a perceived slur at a coloured person, it becomes headlines. I may have missed it but I haven't seen anything in headlines because a coloured person has referred to a white as "White Scum!" I have an adopted daughter who has brown skin and she does occasionally get called unwelcome names but she lives above that stupidity and ignores it.

An interesting thing happened here in our city a few years back. We are privileged to have many shiny black folks from Africa here. A particular one of these, a beautiful young Lady, is very fast on her feet in running. She was working in a particular shop when in walked a person of obviously mixed race but whose skin barely reflected their darker origins who was actually quite angry about his supposed having been subject to racist remarks. He thought he had a good chance of verbally inciting his own racist tendencies with this obviously racial person. She was enjoying her newfound racial freedoms here in AUS and took offence at his remarks to which he immediately called her a "racist" but was not prepared for her answer. "Get out of this shop you half white racist mongrel, I AM MUCH BLACKER THAN YOU and I do not find your racial insinuations by white folks against ME! You are the worst racialist I have come across here." He quickly left the shop but this beautiful Lady was extremely angry as she was supported and cherished here.

We also have quite a number of these beautiful BLACK people attending our Church and there is NO discrimination against them FULLSTOP. They take part in the running of the services just the same as us whites. We have the same colour blood running in our veins. Why should there be some supposed difference just because of the colour of the skin. We love our "chocky Princess" and her Chocky coloured Children of which she is due to have yet one more making it two girls and two boys. We are very proud of her. The love between us is a bond never to be broken.

I have five grandchildren, two are half Aborigine and one is half Maori. My daughter is also a lesbian who is marrying her partner next year so yes, I have witnessed prejudice first hand.
But it's not as bad as it used to be when I was a kid back in the sixties and seventies. It's small steps but hopefully we will get there.

Barbara V, that's right, you have to be carefully taught. Like Abacrombie and Fitch not wanting the so called fat kids wearing their clothes, or the Mountain Dew ad that was so racist Pepsi ended up pulling it. Notice in that ad, a helpless badly beaten woman was white and the bad guys were all black, *except the goat* And that ad was to sell a soft drink.
Yes, racism is still going strong and a lot of it is media driven.
You have to be carefully taught indeed.

Robyn and Vita, Aurea, cheers to you!
Yes, children learn what they live. Hopefully, we are in a phase change, moving from short-sighted bias to open acceptance...we'll see.
But for now, racism is still rampant, and anyone who does not recognize this fact is blinding him/her self.
That was a very sad, and sorrowful video, is bringing tears as i write.
There is/was a movie, called "The Color of Fear," that I saw in the late '90's, that I urge people to look into, and a book "The Color of Water," that speaks directly to this. This latter was written by a musician of black and white parentage, whose mother came from an Orthodox Jewish family, if I recall it properly.

Our heritage as humans, Homo Sapiens, goes back MUCH farther than 20.000 years. New research indicates that the species may even have developed in several places, including Africa, AND that we did indeed interbreed with Neanderthals, having 3% of Neanderthal DNA. There is more variance in any single "racial", or cultural DNA than there is among different groups.

I'm an apparently white dude, with Eastern European parentage, but a DNA test found some bit of Kenyan DNA in there somewhere...go know!

I am still hopeful that in my lifetime a life form, bacteria or not, will be found on another planet, and just MAYBE people will recognize the value of giving up ALL the crap about "My God, Your God, this one, that one,this story, that story, that prophecy, the other one(s)," and just be damn humans, holding one another's hands as we spin wildly through the void!!

Kit "Lead by example. Learn to accept all people as they are" that is sheer hypocrisy and double standards. Your anti-Semitism is well known in many circles. All you do is attack Israel and Israelis.

I was proving a point and you leapt onto the bandwagon to prove it.

I've seen that before. Perhaps when it was made. I found it incredibly sad then and still do. I am heartened by a couple of things though. We have FINALLY begun to see non white faces in commercials, families doing normal family things - that simply didn't exist for most of my life. And I feel this one, the generation born from 2000 on is really going to change things in this world. My sons grew up in a diverse community and had truly wonderful friends of many races, I was so proud of them for that because in my family, my generation and before, that was not true. My grandchildren 2000 and 2002, seem colorblind in their choice of friends, and I see so many brilliant already young people of this coming generation unwilling to accept what is told them. Who seem to know innately what is right and wrong. That doesn't lessen the sadness that I feel over these poor children who are mimicking what they see in the media and in their neighborhoods. I've never been a Dylan fan but one thing he said right is the times they are a changing, just not when he said they were, but now, I feel that more than know it, and there are still plenty of bumps in the road ahead, but I think ultimately this will be behind us, perhaps because as we become of a global community, we lose the fear of that which is different and the hatred of it as well. I think it is our grandchildren who will lead us out of this particular wilderness. They didn't start the fire but they can put it out. I think they will.

It is not going to happen on my watch, you are the archetypical depiction of a bully and I will not go down into the gutter with you. Saw your bio and you vaunt yourself on being such an animal lover and being for all these great causes, try extending that to your fellow humans as well.

This is, indeed, a sad commentary on our society. It starts with the parents, but the media doesn't help. I agree with those who mentioned the questions were phrased in such a way that the child thought there was only one way to answer. Seems this could have been done differently.

I am German, my wife is Indian(born in Malaysia).
Our "Indo German" daughter went through hell as a child. She was called all sorts of names by Italian neighbour kids in our street, ranging from Chocolate, Aboriginal black bitch. It was worse in kindergarten and primary school. They were all the same age. It came to a point that she hated her mother and shouted at other kids, I am German.
We talked to her and she made friends with other Indians and Ski Lankans in highschool, it made her a lot stronger. And it also made Mom and Dad happy.
Then one day she came home with a tattoo on her right shoulder:
"Was mich nicht umbringt macht mich stärker". (By Friedrich Nietzsche)
I feel so bad about this, but I must admit, she has become a very strong and determined person and she is doing well.
I hope the child on the video can draw from this, you are more beautiful than a white person. That is what I told my daughter. My daughter does not hate her mother any more, she does not call herself a German. She got used to be an Australian, even though her parents were not born here. The tattoo, I am still coming to grips with it.

I quite frankly didn't like the questions that the interviewer asked those kids in the video...Why did ANY of the dolls have to be UGLY or one particular doll be more BEAUTIFUL than the other one?
