Now will these black integrationists attack the three month old child?
Seperatism and Economic independence is built on something that is innate to human beings. I am going to save this article.
True indeed. A recognition of Self is as intrinsic to a child's development, as is learning to walk.
they aint need a study for that.. smh...
It is necessary to educate those misguided integrationists who go around saying "I dont see any color", "children were never born racist, but were taught by society".
I think that study was done by folks that don't have any kids........
I'm interpreting this article to mean that if I don't want my child to be prejudiced, I need to expose my infant to "other-race" faces from birth.
I'm also assuming it really means is that parents ought to expose the infant to a variety of complexions, both light and dark so that the child won't develop a preference for one over the other. Many AA families have a wide variety of complexions in them already. Most white families do not, so this is something those of them who value diversity need to concern themselves with.
Fascinating..............children are born with a natural attraction, even a preference for their own people. I believe it, this matches my childhood experiences and feelings.
As it does mine as well.
Kelly’s team found the preference for own-race faces doesn’t exist at one month of age, so it is not innate, they noted
The article doesn't say that children are born with the preference, but it develops by 3 months of age if the infant is not exposed to "other-race" faces.
