The Myth of Racist kids

Can kids be racist? Are they truly colour blind as this programme suggest? Does calling another child ‘chocolate bar’ mean a child is racist? Children do have an opinion and a mind of their own. But they are also heavily influenced by adults including their parents and teachers. I think prejudices rather than racist exists amongst kids and children tend to say what they think without thinking it through first and holding back. If a child sees someone who looks different from themselves, it is inevitable that they will make comments and ask questions. Racism is broad term with many branches and people who use it should be able to define it within the context they are using it.
