  •  ALL children should also be exposed to (3+ / 0-)

    people of color as role models, should participate in integrated communities, and should attend events that highlight other cultures.

    w/re law enforcement contacts, again I think it would be instructive for ALL children to learn about racial bias/animus in the law enforcement community, and more generally throughout our culture.

    In other words, saying "the same way I would a white man" may well be a completely appropriate response, assuming the parent would raise a white child in a culturally-aware, loving and nuturing home.
