Instead of answering the kid's question...people call him racist..Jeeez.. people chill.... And in answer to the kids question...[Maybe}...and I am a Black person...:peace: [/quote] I think it would have been a good time for the younger kid's mother to get the other kid to come to their house, explain a bit about their cultural heritage, I bet the other kid would have been enthralled by it, and that's how to get different races to interact with each other.Or rather than making a fuss with the school, offer to hold a question and answer session with maps, etc.Even if they are fifth generation British, they have a cultural heritage stretching back. I used to live in a community of immigrants abroad where I was the only white person in a whole town, and I loved to hear about their backgrounds, they cooked traditional food for me, they invited me to worship with them, and the small children looked at me strangely because they weren't sure why I looked so different, but we all got on together. [/quote] I agree. I am half white & half cherokee choctaw, I met my native american family when I was 6 and I was afraid. After they showed me the culture, I lost self fear and became a proud halfbreed without having to rant & rave and behave like an animal! [/quote] My kids have Mi'kmaq (eastern Canada) in them, but they look white [/quote]
A BOY of seven is facing accusations of racism after asking a fellow pupil if he was “brown because he was from Africa”.
Elliott Dearlove asked the question of the five-year-old boy at Griffin Primary School in Barham Road, east Hull.
The younger boy’s mother complained to the school, which launched an investigation.
Elliott’s mother, Hayley White, 29, says she received a phone call to say her son had been at the centre of a “racist incident”.
She was summoned to the school by her son’s teacher, where she was read the school’s zero-tolerance policy on racism.
Miss White, an NHS healthcare worker, said: “Elliott does not even know the meaning of the word racist.
