No words required.

You’re right, there are no words. What are parents saying in front of those kids for them to write such racist things?
I think that is a very good point and where these attitudes begin. Parents have a responsibility, so too schools, employers and society in general to educate children about other peoples/cultures as well as the beauty in our differences so that racism is simply not part of the Consciousness. But the reality is while it exists and while it is so public and open people need to be named and shamed and those around them called to account.
Couldn’t agree more!
To have no words that are adequate yet be so saddened and shocked at the same time that I want to burst…I just don’t know how a human can look at the face of a child and think like that-let alone share it in a public forum. The ad itself I thought worked well to make the point (before I saw this). It is parents, absolutely, that set the course for these attitudes. Got to keep talking and pointing it out. You are right. So far to go 😦
