    Racist baby

    Reading your books make me think that you are planing to homicide every white person on the planet. Other people can be racist to white people too

    Solomon Arnett ,

    Narrowly focused.

    As a black, independent man in his 20s, I came to this book (and purchased it) upon mention of it during the Supreme Court confirmation hearings of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.

    I like that the book provides actionable steps that children can follow. It was a nice touch by the author to include teachings and guidelines for parents at the end. I wish only that the illustrations matched the theme the words portray.

    Ironically, this book itself is (in a way) racist. There is an illustration of a baby knocking down a stack of “cultural blocks”; one of which depicts a white power symbol. Toward the end, there is another illustration that depicts a black power fist symbol on the cover of a book. You can’t have your cake and eat it too.

    Furthermore, within the adult section of the book, parents are being guided to inform their children that the impoverished conditions of Black and brown people are no fault of their own, rather it is racist policies that are the sole contributor; this is not always the case and we shouldn’t be painting economical disparities with such a narrow brush. It is my opinion that this promotes prejudice within children.

    This book was clearly written with Black and brown families as the target demographic. I can see why people who are not Black or brown find it to be unfair. As much as it is important to teach or children about systematic injustice and inequalities, it is also important to ensure that we are not, in turn, engineering unpatriotic, begrudged citizens.
