They know that hateful messages placed at an early age can profoundly influence and affect young minds. The main purpose of this paper is to evaluate the social, cultural and political forces determining information quality and the rich array of Web sites being delivered for children. Especially, this paper, painted a more realistic and accurate portrait of biases in online world, is to learn how to promote the most important diverse backgrounds, ethnocentrism and antiracist, equity in the children's Web pages better by increasing emphasis on cultural multiculturalism.
