A surprised mother of a little boy has said that prejudice and racism are values that are taught to children because her son sees no racial difference between he and his best friend a black kid.
Lydia Stith Rosebush narrated on her Facebook timeline how her five-year-old son, Jax, is convinced of one thing in life: he and his best friend, Reddy, look like identical twins.
like identical twins.
There’s really only one thing that separates the two besties according to Jax: his hair stands up while Reddy’s is cropped.
So Jax decided to cut his hair over the weekend and play a little prank of he and Reddy’s teacher on Monday.
Because how on earth would their teacher be able to tell the difference between them if they had the same hairstyle?
“Jax said he couldn’t wait to go to school on Monday with his hair like Reddy’s so that his teacher wouldn’t be able to tell them apart,” his mother, Lydia, wrote on Facebook.
“If this isn’t proof that hate and prejudice is something that is taught I don’t know what is,” Lydia wrote. “The only difference Jax sees in the two of them is their hair.”
