Watching the Olympics every day for two weeks brings up a plethora of questions, interesting conversations, stories about childhood, and issues to talk about, doesn’t it?
Here is one of mine and Chris’ deeper Olympic-birthed conversations, and we need an answer to the burning question that came from it!!
You know the song, right?
All the children of the world!
Red and yellow, black and white,
They are precious in His sight.
Jesus loves the little children of the world!
Red = (American) Indians, and
Yellow = Chinese.
But Chris vehemently disagreed and said that he was taught that:
Red = Chinese, and
Yellow = Mexicans.
Now, we need to get this cleared up before Ali starts asking us what people are red and what people are yellow!! So, please, let us know what you were taught so that we can correctly teach our daughter racial generalizations just like all of us were!
Or is this song just “right out” with today’s political correctness?
