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.
