Kids Learn The Lessons of Racism Well

So true.

Like the song says, “I believe the children are our future.” But there are stories like this one out of Pennsylvania that just break your heart when it comes to showing that kids can also take on the ugliest of behaviors when it comes to racism.

Vile racism raised its ugly head during a boys basketball game near Pittsburgh on Friday when fans of a nearly all-white suburban school ran on the court in banana suits and made monkey noises to taunt the players for their rivals, who play for a school which is predominantly African-American.

Yep, sometimes it really does feel like though we take two steps forward, we also take a step back at the same time. Kudos to the African-American players for not taking the bait and making the incident worse.

Here is the full story.
