Yeah, when I was 4 or 5 years

Yeah, when I was 4 or 5 years old, my brother and I used to play the board game "Chutes And Ladders" at our Grand Parents house, at that age I did not understand anything about race.

I had never heard the terms, "Black People" "White People" or anything like that, and no one in my family was even slightly racist.

BUT I clearly remember insisting firmly that I get the token that featured the blond haired blue eyed Boy, and refusing the token that featured the Black boy, of course I was a boy so the Girl tokens were out of the question any way.

Of course, I think that was all silly looking back on it, but my point is for all the people who say, " oh kids don't know, or care about race unless someone tells them too" maybe that is true for the other 6 Billion+ children, and former children alive today, but it was not for me, and that was not my family's fault, in the end racial identity is a fact of life, you can't make anyone love anyone but you can love others yourself, and teach your children your beliefs when they are old enough to understand
