When a child at camp goes up to her and says...I do not want to play with you because you are black. Aviva told me this happened at camp (she did not tell me till yesterday and camp is over). This child was 5 years old. Where would this child learn this but from her parent(s). How sad is it that my child had someone say something like that to her. A child who is so compassionate, innocent and loving of everyone. I felt so horrible that she has to experience this at such a young age. I explained to her that if someone says something like that to you again you need to tell an adult right away. And you do not need a child like that to be your friend, because she is not very nice.
I am just sad.
