Discourses of Whiteness and Blackness: An Ethnographic Study of Three Young Children Learning to Be White
Miller, Erin T.
Ethnography and Education, v10 n2 p137-153 2015
In blatant, but nuanced and often invisible ways, racism continues to exist globally, nationally and locally, implicating us all. The insidious nature of racism is deeply rooted in the lives of young children. In order to interrupt and reverse those practices, we must know how race is constructed during the early years. This study looked closely at the lives of three white children to identify and examine discourses in their worlds that unveiled how they learned to be raced.
