i don't see any racism here. just a councilwoman who looks too far into things. the children hadn`t received "trainging" on this subject? THEY DON`T NEED TRAINING SINCE CHILDREN ARE TAUGHT RACISM. YOU AREN`T BORN RACIST. YOU`RE BORN NOT GIVING A F*CK. THE PERSON WHO NEEDS TRAINING IS THE COUNCILWOMAN. THEY`RE CHILDREN. HOLY F*CKING SH*T. GOD DAMN.

I thought the problem was the way the girl phrased it. She said the P word, Person.

Those poor kids. You can just hear it the minute she asks them about it that they're just stunned, they had no preconceived notion of any negative connotations. It was going from the darkness into the light of knowledge, it`s a metaphor not a literal statement. It has nothing to do with race, they are supposed to be universal figures.

I wish somebody had just said "It has to do with light, not skin colour. There is no such thing as gold people"
