    I already see problems in the methods. But in society where supposely a hidden messages stating any thing associated with the color white is suppose to be pure and close to God and anything associate with the color black is demonic. Then there's that saying "[some] apples does fall far from the tree" it doesn't surprise me that they reach that conclusion.

    But babies? Yeah right. Maybe they are afraid of darker things because at night, mommy and daddy are gone and the baby hears strange noises including moans.

    The title's a little misleading. The crux of the baby portion is,

    It's not terribly surprising that one would try to identify with another person like themself. At that early age, there's not much more to go on than visual appearance. It's not so much discrimination as it is a subconcious preference of a partially developed mind.

    Any "study" can be swayed into the direction you want it to.

    So children are born racist?

    What a load of bullshit.

    When I was growing up I had a lot of friends of different races but I didnt even notice stuff like that,I didnt even know what racism was,until racist adults started acting like bigots around me.

    If a kid acts racist it's probably the parents or other influential adults in theyr life.

    People need to stop passing racism on to younger generations as simple as that.

    Fuck the tribe,we are all human.

    All humor aside, it's clear not a lot of people here read the article. No where does it state that babies are racist. It just says that babies are capable of recognizing races and will identify with those that look like them and their parents. It's merely self-preference.

    At best, "discrimination" in this case means associating with people like yourself, and at worst it's an exaggeration. Also, much of the article has to do with how to approach the issue of race with children, and why people tend to associate with people of the same race, not explicitly racist babies.

    The only iffy part I read was the bit about black Santa Claus. I haven't given it a whole lot of thought, but it seems off. Like an asian (or any non-Greek) Zeus or something.

    I call BS as well, especially this part:

    CAT scans and other tests have shown that babies aren't capable of processing like that; in fact most babies can't focus their eyes with any sort of visual acuity until they're closer to a year old. Everyone is out of focus for them.

    Anyway it's clear that very few people here are reading the article or even comprehending what it's saying.

    No,I read it and undertand it. I was just kidding around. The way MSN presents it on their front page is preftty misleading,though.
