“"discussions about and images of the many different beautiful shades of dark skin instead"?
With 4 year olds. Solve the platitude-heavy problems of race by reducing it to aesthetics. To 4 year olds. Gotcha.”

“Jacob, It's less about "aesthetics" and more about visual/visible difference. A 4-year old won't yet grasp, the deeper cultural differences amongst individuals of different races/ethnicity, they can only "see" the difference. So it's best to START the conversation by acknowledging what they SEE and normalizing that, so they can later be able to digest what they hear and experience.”
