I saw this great post on anti-racist parent recently:
I've been thinking about it a lot. My kid is not quite two, so a big part of me thinks that she's too little to understand anything about race. I will admit, though, that I'm sort of scared about talking to her about it (definitely afraid of messing this up), and because I know I have some reluctance to talk about it with her, I worry I'll wait longer than I should.
When did you start talking to your kids about race and racism? What did these early conversations look like? I really don't want to wait until she brings it up; I don't want her first understanding of it to come from someone or somewhere that does not reflect our values. Thoughts?
