Sometimes a story comes along, and it just needs to be passed along without comment. This one needs no added comedy.

Claim: Kids who say ‘yuck’ may be racist

LONDON, July 7 (UPI) — Toddlers who say “yuck” when given flavorful foreign food may be exhibiting racist behavior, a British government-sponsored organization says.

The London-based National Children’s Bureau released a 366-page guide counseling adults on recognizing racist behavior in young children, The Telegraph reported Monday.

The guide, titled Young Children and Racial Justice, warns adults that babies must also be included in the effort to eliminate racism because they have the ability to “recognize different people in their lives.”

The bureau says to be aware of children who “react negatively to a culinary tradition other than their own by saying ‘yuck’.”

“Racist incidents among children in early years settings tend to be around name-calling, casual thoughtless comments and peer group relationships,” the guide says.

Staff members are advised not to ignore racist actions and to condemn them when they occur.

But don’t worry, I’m sure that any child with these racist anti-social tendencies will be cured once he gets enrolled in a government indoctrination center public school.

  1. I’ve got an idea….I think we need to find a way to send one the damn hurricanes that hits the U.S to England. Hopefully that will start the process of erasing this bs.
