Rita Tenorio writes a really cool account of some of the racist attitudes that she and her peers had to confront in their classrooms. Tenorio talks about how even at the age of six the children have an implicit understanding that “lighter skin” is better, as evidenced by the non-white student’s reluctance to participate in skin comparison activities. The author goes onto to cite how racism is perpetuated in the play ground and the need to deconstruct the kids thinking that one race is better than the other. She outlines a number of activities that her and her peers do in class to get the kids and the parents thinking about where their ideas of race come from such as Me Pockets, Partner Questions, Let’s Talk About Skin, etc. It’s a fantastic read that leaves the reader feeling more equipped to confront racism in the classroom.
