How Would Your “White” Daughter Respond If Given A “Black” Doll?

If you do not know the answer to this question, try it!

If your daughter acts like the girls in the video below, perhaps you should evaluate what they are learning about race from you at home. Please remember, just because you do not overtly talk about race, DOES NOT mean they are not learning about race from you.

So…don’t think racism isn’t taught at home?

So…would a black child act the same with a white doll?

If not, why?

So…if those two girls are doing the hiring, working in Hollywood, or in some other position where they could seriously impact the lives of someone who looks like that doll, could you separate implicit bias and race from their decisions?

So…many questions to answer, and ask if you’re willing.

This is a good video to summarize this year in America (actually, the last 6 years).

So…how might these girls respond to various situations if they were police officers 20 years from now?
