Kids who say 'yuck' may be racist

You have to love pseudoscience:

LONDON, July 7 (UPI) -- Toddlers who say "yuck" when given flavorful foreign food may be exhibiting racist behavior, a British government-sponsored organization says.

The London-based National Children's Bureau released a 366-page guide counseling adults on recognizing racist behavior in young children, The Telegraph reported Monday.

The guide, titled Young Children and Racial Justice, warns adults that babies must also be included in the effort to eliminate racism because they have the ability to "recognize different people in their lives."

The bureau says to be aware of children who "react negatively to a culinary tradition other than their own by saying 'yuck'."

"Racist incidents among children in early years settings tend to be around name-calling, casual thoughtless comments and peer group relationships," the guide says.

Staff members are advised not to ignore racist actions and to condemn them when they occur.

Children that say eek! may be gay

I have no real data to support this claim, It's more of a hunch.

Shouldn't we be aware of people who publish stuff like this and condemn them when they do? So much for the intolerance of the tolerant class.

You are probably a racist for posting this. I am hopeful you will turn away from the past and embrace the present while looking to the future.

I guess all of my kids are racists then they say "yuck" to just about everything.

I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.

From the NCB. "We said Woot?"

Recent media coverage referring to the NCB publication, Young Children and Racial Justice: Taking action for racial equality in the early years, has misrepresented the content and purpose of this valuable tool designed to support early years professionals in their work.

A spokesperson from NCB said: ‘It is an excellent resource which has been specially designed to help teachers and nursery leaders recognise what is, and just as importantly, what is NOT potentially racist behaviour and attitudes in youngsters in their care.

References to use of the word ‘yuk’, ‘spicy foods’ and reporting young children to local authorities, in this 366-page book, have been misrepresented and misunderstood as a consequence of that.’

‘This book is being funded by NCB from book sales alone – and not from government funding or from any grants, as has also been reported. The sales have been excellent so far which goes to show there is an acknowledged need for books like it. ’

Jane Lane, the author, who is not a member of NCB staff, but an advocate worker for racial equality in the early years sector, said: ‘Children are like sponges and the early years of their lives are critical for helping them understand and learn to respect the opinions, differences, similarities and needs of others.’
