Tips to help you talk to your child about racism

Did you know that there is no such thing as race? God didn’t create race. He created mankind, people, humans, us. All of our complexions are particular. That’s what makes us beautiful and unique as people. There is no black or white race, only ethnicities. I can’t discuss the beliefs of other countries because it isn’t my experience. I can only tell you what I know about my country, America. America is a beautiful melting pot. The beauty of our differences should be explored and celebrated.Children and Racism
