Are children color blind in America? CNN has come to the conclusion that a large percentage of them are!
CNN ran a pilot last night called “Black or White: Kids On Race” where they evaluated both white and black children on how they reacted to a color chart of cartoon kids:
They asked them questions like:
Who is the smarter child?
Who is the mean child?
Who is the ugly child?
Most of the children answered that the darker cartoon children were either mean, ugly and or dumb because of their skin color. CNN hired Professor Margaret Beale Spencer to analyze the results(she also designed he experiment). For the results watch the full episode tonight on CNN at 10pm.
*They tested 133 children from schools that met very specific economic and demographic requirements. In total, eight schools participated: four in the greater New York City area and four in Georgia.*

With the media constantly reminding us of light skinned vs. dark skinned it isn’t surprising that children these days aren’t color blind.
