Posted on 07/07/2008 8:11:43 AM PDT by Uncledave
Toddlers who turn their noses up at spicy food from overseas could be branded racists by a Government-sponsored agency.
The National Children's Bureau, which receives £12 million a year, mainly from Government funded organisations, has issued guidance to play leaders and nursery teachers advising them to be alert for racist incidents among youngsters in their care.
This could include a child of as young as three who says "yuk" in response to being served unfamiliar foreign food.
The guidance by the NCB is designed to draw attention to potentially-racist attitudes in youngsters from a young age.
It alerts playgroup leaders that even babies can not be ignored in the drive to root out prejudice as they can "recognise different people in their lives".
The 366-page guide for staff in charge of pre-school children, called Young Children and Racial Justice, warns: "Racist incidents among children in early years settings tend to be around name-calling, casual thoughtless comments and peer group relationships."
It advises nursery teachers to be on the alert for childish abuse such as: "blackie", "Pakis", "those people" or "they smell".

I wonder how many non-white toddlers will be monitored and admonished for "racist" actions?
George Herbert Walker Bush was broccoli-phobic. He could have been impeached for that.
I must be an adult racist. I don’t like spicy food either.
Eat your vindaloo!
This is a joke, correct?
“Good Lord” is right.
What’s next in Great Britian, you gonna take the kids puppies away from them?
Goodbye UK! It was nice knowin’ ya!
Has England officially entered the Twilight Zone?
Further proof that the UK is suicidal.
Puppies offend Muslims. They gotta go.
The UK is lost, gone to hell. Too bad, it was once one of history greatest nations. Sad, to see.
“Racism” is a plot of the vast hard left wing conspiracy.
Along with the nanny culture and self righteous nanny fascists.
Along with the “greens” and enviro wacko “environmentalists” with emphasis on “mental”.
>>>>>Whats next in Great Britian, you gonna take the kids puppies away from them?<<<<<<
Puppies are best as a mild curry.
This can’t be real. Somebody - please tell me this is a joke of some kind.
What unmitiigated BS!
Hey kid, eat your lutefisk and shut up.
Will someone please beam me back to my planet? Please!!
So, what do you call a Muslim kid who won’t eat pork?
I can ALWAYS tell if something has curry in it. It will spend about 35 seconds in my stomach and then exit, in a very dramatic way.
Any British cousins hereabouts that might know?
Good heavens! What about LUTEFISKE?!?!?!?!?!..........
The sheer silliness of this kind of thing is dangerous, obviously. When a majority is subjected to incompetence, economic downturn, and petty oppression that all can point to as common experience, it's a wider and wider opportunity for a charismatic leader who offers to tear up the map and start over. It could be someone good who seizes control, or someone bad.
When that happens, the butcher's bill could be huge.
This has to be a joke???
Does this apply to kids who won’t eat pork?
This is a joke right?
Putting Corporate Parenting into Practice Developing an effective approach - a toolkit for councils
Di Hart and Alison Williams
Within the renewed emphasis on improved outcomes for all children brought about by Every Child Matters, there is a recognition that particular attention needs to be paid to those who are looked after. The government initiative, Care Matters, aims to ensure that the state's responsibility to be an effective corporate parent is fulfilled. Each local authority must re-invigorate the way that it meets the needs of children in its care, to ensure that they are not just cared for, but cared about.
The corporate parenting toolkit provides practical support to those with responsibility for services to looked after children and care leavers across the council and partner agencies. The resources can be used by councils developing training programmes, including the training of councillors, and in reviewing and developing the council's corporate parenting arrangements.
Commonguy, I'll see your "Good Lord" and raise you one "Holy Crap!"
No more stupid than the PC crap we have in this country right now. Hell they are even taking down blog’s that say anything amiss about the magic negro, it gets worse by the minute.
On a related note:
I remember seeing a poll on how most Britons don’t agree with this garbage. But they keep voting these people in.
Political correctness is the enemy of truth.
Will those govt-raised toddlers be held accountable if they refuse to eat bacon? Enquiring minds want to know..
Does anybody recall that movie “A Clockwork Orange”?
What about children who react negatively to their parents being beheaded? Will “the staff” wish them in to the corn field.
Britain seems to be experiencing a full meltdown.
Sure wish we were farther behind them than we are.
The Brits were a tough people.....at one time. They are being run by muslims now. They will be no better than the middle east eventually. Hating Christians and Jews and producing nothing of value to the world.
hmmmm. Many toddlers I know (including a grandchild) turn up their noses and say “Yuk!” at unfamiliar American foods...and even some familiar ones.
It would be logical, since dogs are a crop in some cultures. While we’re at it, we should slap that burger out of their little hands because cattle are revered in others.
Yep. Haven’t watched it in a long time though.
“gonna take the kids puppies away from them?”
only those with names that show xenophobia, like Yorkshire Terrier, St. Bernard, etc.
Britain has gone wacky-woo-woo.
In some ways surpassing ‘1984’ in ways Orwell would not have dreamed.
What about these Muslim toddlers who say “Yuk” when offered gelatin dessert (made with pigs’ hooves) or a hot dog?
Worse, what happens if these Muslim toddlers LIKE the offered food, and go home and demand it from their parents?
“A UK citizen of devout faith.”
Mooselimbs don’t have a problem with cow so that wont happen.
