[/quote] How about if you were missing an arm .. :) .. no really (agree with you), you would think a person who has lost a limb or born with a medical defect would be offended when a child points this out and tells the adult he/she is with .. it usually isn't offensive at all to them, except for the adult hushing the child .. instead they would just want the Adult to say .. "why don't you ask" .. kids are curious is all .. [/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.
