British Word Police Target Racist Children

leave a comment »

Children as young as three years old who don’t like ethnic foods and say “yuck” are neophyte racists.

A British government-sponsored organization says toddlers who say “yuck” when given unfamiliar foreign food may be exhibiting racist behavior.

The “Telegraph” newspaper of London cites a guide from the British-based “National Children’s Bureau” providing advice on recognizing potentially-racist behavior in children. It states that includes children as young as three saying “yuck” in reacting to culinary traditions other than their own. The guide, titled “Young Children and Racial Justice,” is for nursery staffs in charge of pre-school children. It states that racist incidents among children in early years settings tend to be around name-calling, casual thoughtless comments and peer group relationships.

The NCB warns that a lack of censure may indicate to the child that there is nothing unacceptable about such negative attitudes.

The mad dogs and English have been out in the midday sun too much. Socialism has ruined the British Empire.
