All this week CNN’s Anderson Cooper is featuring the findings of a recent study performed on children ages five and ten, The Doll Test. It was the result of this test over 60 years ago that resulting in the landmark, Brown v. The Board of Education.
The results of the test today still overwhelmingly reflected that White children have what is called “white bias” (associating positive attributes with their own race while associating negative attributes to children of the opposite race). When White children were asked which child is the dumb kid or the angry kid or the kid most adults do not like, 66% to 77% of the time the white child pointed to the darker child.
What saddens me the most as a Black person with three children is that the study showed that Black children also reflected White Bias. What this means is that when asked the same question most Black children had the same answers. This reflects that like White kids, Black children also associate those negative attributes with children of color, their own color. Our Black children reflected that they want a skin color lighter than their own, most adults do not like them and they too see other Black kids as the dumb kid. This is wrong and this most stop.
If we as parents do not teach our own children to love and respect who they are as individuals and who we (Black people) are as a People, no one else will. We have to teach our children the truth as it relates to being a Black child in American and even more so if you have a Black male. White bias in a Black child is NOT acceptable and it is up to all Black adults to change this for our children and our future. Parents open your mouth daily and express to your child that they are a beautifully made gift from God. And that our Creator makes us different for His divine purpose. We should love and respect our own race as well as others.
