I thought this was a very interesting article.  There was a study that was done to figure out how parents could revert racism. Children’s racial attitudes can be turned if parents openly talk about race, and not just use the common phrase everyone is equal. If parents talk and make emphasis on interracial friendships, children’s attitudes can be curved for the better.

  2. I think parents often times need help answering difficult questions about racism. For instance, most parents are simply not aware how to deal with the racism issue, and often give a simple answer to their children without explaining why. It seems as though that racism and tolerance is a new concept for most parents. I find that education is often the key to revert racism. I also believe that parents should practice what they preach and actually demonstrate tolerance to their children.

  3. I think the underlying theme here is how idealistic most of us view our parents. Do we see them as fellow human beings? I know personally, i’ve only recently seen true sides from both of my parents. They aren’t perfect. They probably have skewed viewpoints of the world. Parents need to cut the BS and show us their true side. Here is one example.
