Why Talking About Diversity is Important for Parents of Every Race

Race is a concept that minority children cannot avoid; simply becoming aware that they do not look like their favorite television characters will inevitably make a child wonder why they look different. This can spark a conversation and awareness on the part of parents of minority children regarding diversity and make the topic unavoidable. White children and their parents, however, do not have this blatant “opening” and so oftentimes it is never addressed. Furthermore, white parents may simply think that topics such as diversity, race or multiculturalism are not even relevant to them.

Ten Quotes about Cultural Acceptance

“A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.” - Marcus Garvey

“It is time for parents to teach young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength.” - Maya Angelou

“Diversity means understanding.” - Stuart Scott

Culturally Diverse Playtime

We all know that understanding differences starts at home, but the discrepancies aren’t always represented or apparent under our roofs. Relevant literature indicates that children are aware of differences in other kids based on gender or race as young as two years old. As an example, racial awareness begins with self as a toddler to exploring individual identity and being able to identify stereotypes by five or six years of age.
