Children's ideas about fairness may depend on race

'One of the first studies ever to examine the development of "modern racism" in children finds that by fourth grade, children are making decisions about fairness that take race into account. This finding, from researchers at Lafayette College in Easton, Pa., is published in the July/August issue of the journal Child Development.'

"the researchers evaluated 87 white children" Why? The assumption that only white children can be racist is both unscientific and racist in itself. Posted by Martin Sewell at July 17, 2006 11:09 AM
