    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.

    Your comment that no white parent feels they should instill the idea to their children that equality should be of top priority is based on...? I don't remember hearing any parent say it wasn't. How many str8 parents teach their children about the equality of sexuality? It's the same thing as long as your not directly confronted w/ an issue, usually it's a dead one. The mother (white) of that little grl as you can see was deeply moved by the results of her daughters responses and I'm sure it was an eye opener. No matter how many ppl deny that race is a non-issue you can't deny the innocence and honesty of the truth of a child. Hopefully as these children grow and life lessons will shape who they are to become these doors will be shut and others will open.

    60 years ago my folks taught me that all people are alike whatever their color and that they all deserve respect.

    . . . first of all, equality is a modern fiction, a chimerical fantasy . . . adults in the real world are hip to this . . . it is a concept used to maintain the peace in a civil society . . .

    . . . oh wait, first of all, you should learn how to spell privilege . . . and you should learn the difference between bias and biased, etc. . . .

    . . . secondly (or perhaps thirdly by now), have you noticed the high number of asian-american students enrolled at elite schools like Cal Berkeley and MIT? . . . maybe their parents were focused on achievement, not endless whining . . .

    Why so hostile? Chill. However I see you for who you are by the tone of your reply on something that requires much less attitude. You expose your truth, live in it.
