Children, Race and Self Esteem


Take a look at this video, and lets seriously contemplate the methods by which our children are socialised to feel racially inferior. This should serve as a gruesome wake up call.

It would be interesting to view the results of similar experiments in the Caribbean.

Please be sure to share it with all of your friends and family.

I need say no more.

ouch! I'd love to see what doll the white children would prefer if the same test was done on them.

was especially sad when the girl after choosing the black doll as the one that looks bad, indicated that that's the doll that looks like her. wow.

Sigh. I have no doubt that white children would choose the white doll.

Interesting indeed. Shows that the inferiority complex we blacks have still exists.

On another site I frequent this debate is raging. Is it race or really marketing because by time they grown most will choose the black doll

Blame colonialism. That's why many of our people feel that if they bleach their skin they are more 'upwardly mobile!'
