White Anti-Racism: No Hairshirt Necessary

“People are Children”

I came across this youtube video on Loveisntenough. What intrigued me most was the difference between the younger kids and the older kids. Some of the little ones do seem to have a vague understanding of the concepts but they don’t seem to connect the concepts to their life experiences. The older kids however seem to understand race and racism solely in terms of their life particular experiences. I’m sure this has something to do with the editorial decisions, but I would still like to think more about how and when we begin to internalize the problems of race.
