Beautiful article, by the way. You’re spot on and I’ve said for many years that racism ends when people stop teaching it to their children.
I read an article about a study done with elementary aged children where photos of children of different nationalities were laid out on a table and each child was asked which child they thought was beautiful.
Each child chose the photo with a child that had the same skin color.
This is so very significant because mothers teach their children that they’re perfect and beautiful in every way, as they should.
