Again back to the theory of "white priviledge/privilege"..and how todays youth and past generations have been raised in this country. On one hand white parents just dont think that they should instill the idea to their children that equality should be of top priority . I got that from a few white friends of mines. They were never taught that there should be equality among their bredren. They sort of grew up learning on their own. On the other hand minority parents make it a task to teach their children at an early age that race is an issue and as you grow you should expect to face certain barriers due to your skin color. At first bias behaviour at a younger age used to not be prevalent but as our society moves forward, this has changed. This could be the results of multiple reasons..whether it be the media, the past presidential elections. Children learn from their parents. If adults continue with their bigoted views then the behaviour will continue to appear.
