I live in the 'burbs. A very WASP-y 'burb. It's not that my kids have never seen anyone who isn't white (we travel into the very multicultural city on a regular basis), it's just that they aren't used to seeing anyone who doesn't look like them on the outside in their neighbourhood very often. The other afternoon we were at the local swimming pool. A couple of kids with dark dark dark ebony skin swam by. My one 2 1/2 year old looked at them as they swam by. I watched as he sat for a minute observing them. Then he said to himself "dat black"...and swam on his merry way.
