Racist Toddlers?

 Did you know that three year olds in England could be considered racist for not enjoying new foods?  

 From the article “This could include a child of as young as three who says “yuk” in response to being served unfamiliar foreign food.”

Oookay.  Many questions come to mind.

  •  What’s the difference between ‘unfamiliar food’ and ‘unfamiliar foreign food’ to a small child?
  • If Jan doesn’t like cilantro, is he being racist against South Americans, Asians, Europeans, or Africans? 
  • If Brittany doesn’t like peanut butter, is she racist against North Americans? 
  • Would a toddler know that french fries and french toast aren’t really French?
  • If someone doesn’t like chicken with rice, is she a misanthrope?
  • If Marc eats his burrito, salsa, chips, rice, and beans, but leaves the guacamole, is he just a little racist?
  • Isn’t it bad manners to say ‘yuck’ even if you’re only 3?

That article was about the silliest thing I’ve read all week.    I chose the bacon sandwich photo because everything is better with bacon.  Ask most exchange students, they’ll agree.  USA bacon is the best.  Apparently, we cure it better here.  Of course, frying instead of boiling helps.
