As parents of ethnic minority children, this article is a must read. Just when we have the hope that our children will live in a less racist world.............. the truth is exposed in a very disturbing way. OK, I know, things are better than in our history, but deep down inside, I think we all hope that people are more open and accepting than they really are. This article is worth a read.
And, here is a question if you are so inclined to answer in the comments....
When do you have that first talk with your child about discrimination and what they might face? Before or after they have their first encounter?
