Perspectives on Race

A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

Children as young as three should be reported for ‘racism’, Government-funded group claims

with one comment

The government of the UK feels that children should be taught about racism from a very young age. Toddlers as young as 3 years old are to be “singled out for criticism” if they have racist attitudes. Even babies should be included in this effort, because “they can recognize different people in their lives”. According to the guide “Young Children and Racial Justice”, every potentially racist incident should be responded to individually. Further according to the guide, disagreement is also racist. Critics of this new program call it “totalitarian”.

  1. Wow, I think this is a bit too extreme. I think it’s good that they are actively fighting racism, but in my opinion they are going a bit far. I read the article and if you scroll down on the same page, you’ll see a story on how a ten year old boy is being prosecuted for calling another boy “Bin Laden.” I think this is ridiculous because I’d bet the kid doesn’t even have an understanding of who Bin Laden is…It had to be someone older, perhaps parents, who stuck this idea in his head, so I don’t really think it’s his fault.
