Your responsibility as a parent is to encourage an understanding and appreciation for diversity. Racism affects all people.
First, you have to acknowledge that bias is real. Then, you have to encourage individuals who have conscious biases to be better. Discuss the challenges that come up for yourself and your children.
Biases start early. Your children are exposed to biases as early as preschool. Establish a safe space to talk about the things they hear and see in the world.
