How can I teach a child to be less racist?
tynamite's avatar Don't.
By teaching children not to be racist, you are using negative suggestion, to suggest to them that they are superior to other races, and it will give them an excuse to be stereotypical towards others, and maybe racist.

Make them watch pre-school tv from a young age to socially engineer them,

When children are at a young age, they do not see colour. If you see kids in primary school or nursery, you will notice that even though they understand that people are different in terms of race; they do not particularly make people feel different for being a different race. In the same way young children don't grasp the concept of death, they don't grasp the concept of race.

I don't know what happens later on in life, and at what stage of their life it happens at, but some time in their life they become aware of their race, and become aware of the social implications that will cause for them.

Go look at primary school or elementary school kids in the playground. And compare that to people in secondary school or high school. You will see which playground has everyone intregating, or which one has each race sticking together.

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
