Kids and Racism

After seeing kids' responses to the Cheerios commercial, I felt good. Maybe there is hope left after all, I told myself. But after seeing this CNN video, I feel deflated once more. What are we doing to our children that no matter their race they seem to be biased?

The reason this video affects me more than the Cheerios' one, is that the Cheerios responses were questions asked directly. When someone asks you directly "Do you think interracial marriage is wrong" most people know (regardless of age) that there's a politically correct answer, and a not so kind one. But when presented with indirect scenarios, then kids might not be able to discern that what they are about to say is not so "politically correct".

What do you guys think?
