Eenie, Meenie, Minie, Mo

As Dr. Carolyn Bennett so brilliantly opined earlier this week, children who don't go to daycare will grow up to become criminals.

But if you send them to daycare, you'll be dumping them into a boiling cauldron of racial antagonism, according to this Daily Telegraph report:

To stop prejudice from developing while children are still three years old, staff need to ensure that different racial groups "play together right from day one", according to Herman Ouseley, the former chairman of the Commission for Racial Equality.

Nursery staff should "discourage separate play" and "help children to unlearn any racist attitudes and behaviour they may have already learnt", said Lord Ouseley.

"It is important to consider whether patterns of play are consistently based on racial or cultural grounds," he writes in the latest issue of the journal Race Equality Teaching.

"If, for example, Muslim children nearly always play together and seldom play with other children, the question needs to be asked, 'Is there a reason for it that may relate to culture? Or apprehension? Or prejudice?'," said Lord Ouseley, the author of an influential report on the 2001 Bradford riots.

The recommendation that staff intervene to ensure that children mix goes further than current thinking and guidance, which concentrates on making sure nurseries cater to all ethnic groups.

Such brilliant insights into the preschoolers' minds! If white or black children prefer to play with others of their own colour, who cares? At that age, racial prejudice is hardly a great motivating factor, and I doubt they can understand the concept.

Let children play with whom they will. Don't project adult attitudes on to their behaviours.

I remember when a new born baby was found in a alley way and turned over to Childrens Aid Society .
What was so odd about this case was that while many couples in Toronto offered to adopt the baby , CAS insisted they would try to find a "Culturally Appropriate" family to place the child for its up bringing.

Culturally Appropriate ????

Did the baby tell them the background of the parents, or was a note stapled to the diaper giving all the details .

The real issue is the bigotry by visible minorities that don't want "Their kind" raised by "Those people" thaat oppressed "Our people" for several centuries.

The baby appeared to have a mild tan look and the CAS presupposed that only non-Whites should raise the baby,but what happens when the child is around 10 and the Afro-Canadian parents realize a Aboriginal link and now the Cultural battle begins.

The only problem I saw during my early years in school was that the girls formed pairs while us boys allowed newcomers to build teams.

I believe the Government has wilfully incited hatred by creating bogus studies that make people dislike others or use false bigotry as a crutch to fullfill the Prophecy by the Government.
