English Abstract

This book is intended to be used by families as a tool that aids in making racism an open topic for family discussion, and in teaching children to respect and appreciate all people. The first issue addressed is that although parents have the initial and most far-reaching influence on shaping their children's attitudes and perceptions of the world, children are also greatly influenced by society, in terms of education and the media. The authors propose forty simple methods of raising a non-racist child within this society. They are simple yet demanding methods, and they require parents to explore the racism that they may be perpetuating, either overtly or covertly. From choosing a diverse school, to showing their children how people are misrepresented in history, the book suggests that parents must be diligent in their principles in order to raise a non-racist child.

As long as there are children, there is hope. Each generation brings with it another chance to restore balance and grace to our world. Let's try to raise our children without twisting their minds with adult fears and falsehoods. We have a long way to go; here is where we start. (Mary Ann French, p.xix)

It may seem noble to strive toward a colour-blind society, but its misguided. And even if we set out as a nation aiming for that state of sameness, we'd have to mend many historical fences and bridge a modern day abyss before arriving. Racism is too deeply rooted in our culture to pretend it away. (p.53)
