Oh I agree there. I wasn't trying to imply that kids don't lie. But it seems to me that their tendency would be to lie in order to avoid punishment, not to lie because they were asked questions about race. If they don't have any skin in the game they will be truthful in their answers.

The gov is part of the problem in schools, special test in a different room. No consequences for failing or bad behavior. It's not always the parents, sometimes just the school of hard knocks.

It is far more complicated than that. But that is one small element in it.

Generations of hate is not so easy to overcome.

I think compassion is the key to this.

All it takes is one child deciding at some point that hatred just is not worth the effort. It can be overcome just that easily. It takes a strong person of immense character though.

I can say with some authority though that racial hatred is borne in ignorance and grows from there. When a racist has the opportunity to interact with the people whom he hates they will disregard the ones who do not perpetuate their own myths about that particular race and hold up the ones who do while shouting from the rooftops "SEE? SEE? These people are ALL worthy of my hatred!!!

But they fail to see that they are feeding their own hatred. People can sense when another person approaches them with preconceived notions. I know I can. When most people sense this they tend to fall back into that stereotype that makes them into the person (like Rachael Shantel) people tend to hold up as an example of a "typical" (insert racist term here.

In the case of the Cheerios commercial there is none of that present. 100% of the racial undertones that people have been screaming about are internal within that person. If you listen to an audio recording of the commercial all racial undertones disappear.

To go one step further, if you see a racist agenda at work here, then you are a racist. It is that simple.

It's not about what you look like, it's how you act.
