I think the British government are insane. Government-sponsored agency of Britain say that toddlers who dislike spicy food or other foreign food are 'racist'. In England, toddlers are to be required to like foreign food.


Toddlers who dislike spicy food 'racist'
By Rosa Prince, Political Correspondent of www.telegraph.co.uk

Toddlers who turn their noses up at spicy food from overseas could be branded racists by a Government-sponsored agency.

The National Children's Bureau, which receives £12 million a year, mainly from Government funded organisations, has issued guidance to play leaders and nursery teachers advising them to be alert for racist incidents among youngsters in their care.

This could include a child of as young as three who says "yuk" in response to being served unfamiliar foreign food.

The guidance by the NCB is designed to draw attention to potentially-racist attitudes in youngsters from a young age.

It alerts playgroup leaders that even babies can not be ignored in the drive to root out prejudice as they can "recognise different people in their lives".

The 366-page guide for staff in charge of pre-school children, called Young Children and Racial Justice, warns: "Racist incidents among children in early years settings tend to be around name-calling, casual thoughtless comments and peer group relationships."

It advises nursery teachers to be on the alert for childish abuse such as: "blackie", "Pakis", "those people" or "they smell".

The guide goes on to warn that children might also "react negatively to a culinary tradition other than their own by saying 'yuk'".

Staff are told: "No racist incident should be ignored. When there is a clear racist incident, it is necessary to be specific in condemning the action."

Warning that failing to pick children up on their racist attitudes could instil prejudice, the NCB adds that if children "reveal negative attitudes, the lack of censure may indicate to the child that there is nothing unacceptable about such attitudes".

Nurseries are encouraged to report as many incidents as possible to their local council. The guide added: "Some people think that if a large number of racist incidents are reported, this will reflect badly on the institution. In fact, the opposite is the case."



This is really, and I mean really retarded. That is what you get for political correctness and Socialism. But I sort-of wonder if the british agency workers are really THAT bored?


What is you're thoughts on this?

That is totally fucked up, that is one of the stupidest things I have ever heard. Racism sucks big time, yes, I know, I've been a victim of it many times, but this is crossing the fucking line. I mean, they're going after fucking BABIES now! BABIES! Most children are picky about their food ESPECIALLY if they're not used to it! When introduced to something new a lot of kids turn their noses up at it, it takes them awhile to get used to things. They prefer things they're used to. Hell that goes for most adults as well! Plus, a lot of people don't like spicy foods! It certaintly is NOT an indication of racism! And now they're going to blame the children for the way their PARENTS are raising them and words that their PARENTS are teaching them? I mean fuck these are things that children that age don't even understand/know anything about and they're going to PUNISH them for it!?!? That is fucking retarded. Its bullshit, bullshit, BULLSHIT!
