The Mouths of Babes

Visiting Negrophile.com this morning, I was taken to an essay written by a 15 year old biracial child on living outside the BOX.

I suppose that we force our children to choose one box for statistical and economic reasons. However, this little girl understands more about the insanity of the racial divide in America than most adults.

It reminds me of the day one of my psychology professors, in the midst of a daycare crisis, brought her 5 year old son to class with her. The boy had beautiful long blonde locks and most students automatically assumed that he was a she.

Later the professor said, "He knows what he is. He figures you're the one with the problem."

Children are much smarter than most adults I encounter. Love the comment your professor said.

And isn't it so true Just Me? It's kind of like kids are more grounded in reality and without all of the BS we adults carry around.

Sadly it's too true. I wish that as adults we could be grounded in that reality even surrounded by the bs.
