Children are born color-blind.

Every once in a while – and believe me, it’s rare! – I read a story that restores my faith in mankind for a few minutes.  Amid all the stupidity we “grown-ups” exhibit on a daily basis comes the sweetness and innocence that can only be expressed by a child.

Please take a moment to read this story: 

What we have here is proof positive that hatred and bigotry are traits that are learned.  Children have to be TAUGHT racism.  And, unfortunately, WE are the ones that teach it to them.

This precious child can’t see color.
