Racist Babies – A Global Epidemic
According to the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, the once wholesome and lovable baby, may in fact be nothing more than a simple, backwoods racist.
This is a strange finding because I’ve met babies, and they seemed fine. Little did I know, beneath their innocent and charming exteriors lay the cold and calculating minds of hardened racists. No baby has even given me a racist vibe. I’ve never met a baby and walked away with the suspicion he’d be attending a KKK rally anytime soon.
But science doesn’t lie.
The study showed six to nine month old infants can demonstrate a racial bias toward members of their own race. This is according to how long they looked at pictures of own-race, and other-race faces paired with happy or sad music.
I don’t mean to discount the fine scholars of the scientific community, but how exactly does the amount of time you spend looking at someone’s face when paired with happy or sad music demonstrate a bias toward a certain racial group?
“He only looked for two seconds at the happy other-race photo. That’s a real shame. He also spit up and shit himself at the same time a half hour ago, maybe we shouldn’t be putting too much stock in this little guy’s potential. Racist and unable to control his bowels? I’m not seeing how this combination equals success in today’s competitive work climate.” said disappointed father.
Or maybe this is just the Daily Mail and the New York Post using an over the top headline for clicks. Serious journalism at its finest.
