Beware the racist toddler….

Does your three-year old sometimes refuse to play with others? Does he occasionally turn his nose up at new foods? Could it be that, rather than simply being behavior normal to all toddlers, these are early-warning signs that your baby is a racist??

Thank Nanny God that the British Government maintains a vigilant watch against the threat of Infant Fascism!

The guidance by the [National Children’s Bureau] is designed to draw attention to potentially-racist attitudes in youngsters from a young age.

It alerts playgroup leaders that even babies can not be ignored in the drive to root out prejudice as they can “recognise different people in their lives”.

The 366-page guide for staff in charge of pre-school children, called Young Children and Racial Justice, warns: “Racist incidents among children in early years settings tend to be around name-calling, casual thoughtless comments and peer group relationships.”

It advises nursery teachers to be on the alert for childish abuse such as: “blackie”, “Pakis”, “those people” or “they smell”.

The guide goes on to warn that children might also “react negatively to a culinary tradition other than their own by saying ‘yuk'”.

Staff are told: “No racist incident should be ignored. When there is a clear racist incident, it is necessary to be specific in condemning the action.”

What’s the next step? Sending little future BNP members to reeducation preschools?

Did common sense die in Britain when no one was looking? Raised Eyebrow

    This kind of attitude is actually kind of frightens me.
    If anyone reacts in a way deemed unacceptable by the state then they have to be reported?
    I can’t think of any better way to react to this than Pink Floyd’s “Brick in the Wall.”

    Amazing! Two of my children, at age five, completely failed to register different skin colors in their friends – until the caring adults pointed out how wrong it would be to treat people with different skin color differently. From that point on, they noticed….
