At the Children's Research Lab at the University of Texas, a database is kept on thousands of families in the Austin area who have volunteered to be available for scholarly research. In 2006 Birgitte Vittrup recruited from the database about a hundred families, all of whom were Caucasian with a child 5 to 7 years old.
The goal of Vittrup's study was to learn if typical children's videos with multicultural storylines have any beneficial effect on children's racial attitudes. Her first step was to give the children a Racial Attitude Measure, which asked such questions as:
How many White people are nice? (Almost all) (A lot) (Some) (Not many) (None)
How many Black people are nice? (Almost all) (A lot) (Some) (Not many) (None)
During the test, the descriptive adjective "nice" was replaced with more than 20 other adjectives, like "dishonest," "pretty," "curious," and "snobby."

I am posting this since I was shocked to see this cover at my grocery store:
His Grandmomma was.
How stupid can you get? I’m willing to bet that most if not all kids don’t even see color. They just see who they want to play with......
Original sin from the left.
Only if your baby is born into a family that has ANY contact with ANY Conservative or Republican Family member.
Almost all children are oblivious to skin color.
Is my baby racist?
Hell no, but the “President” sure is!
I saw this headline earlier today at the grocery store and had to look twice to make sure that it wasn’t either a spoof or I was going blind. Apparently being born white automatically makes you a racist. Being born liberal automatically makes you a dumbass.
Get those kids in re-education camps pronto!
Complete nonsense-—my little boy has friends of all backgrounds-—Indian, black, and Asian.
This is seriously messed up (what is their point? well, I know what their point is and that is what is messed up).
No doubt a bunch of liberals from Austin who probably wanted their babies to test as racists to show that all unenlightened people are. Sick. But not surprising from that area.
So now these are just "vague notions" rather than real cultural values?! Damn these people. Damn them. And what racial differences are parents supposed to call attention to? Wouldn't doing so would in and of itself be racist? What ARE racial differences anyway? How do I know upon seeing a Hispanic for the first time that he even speaks Spanish, or is Mormon, or prefers Chinese food to Mexican? Folks, bone up. Stop being afraid and start talking down to those who see race as determinate for life.
Hate crime in the womb!
However, we're talking Austin, the liberal haven of Texas, so this could be true.
