How To Talk To Your Child About Racism

Here are The Onion’s tips for discussing the difficult topic of racism with your child.

  • If you’re having trouble finding the right entry point to the topic, wait a couple hours for some new national tragedy to spur the discussion.
  • Be sure to provide your child with the full historical context surrounding racism, beginning with American slavery and ending with the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
  • They’ll value your honesty. Both “I don’t know” and “Christ, I said I don’t know, Taylor!” are perfectly valid answers to their questions.
  • Invite a Chinese stranger to your home and have your children sit next to them on the couch until they feel at ease. Repeat for all other races.
  • Remind kids it’s okay to notice ethnicity as long as you avoid talking about it until you get in the car.
  • Don’t forget to unconsciously impart all of your racial biases during the discussion.
  • Go ahead and slip in some admonitions in favor of safe sex and responsible driving if the opportunity arises.
  • If your child is upset or uncomfortable, rest assured that you’ve conveyed the situation to them fully and accurately.
