This black empowerment book takes a clinical approach to the question of whether or not young children have a concept of race and its relevance.
Debra Van Ausdale and Joe R. Feagin, both researchers from the University of Florida, used embedded observer techniques to study children in preschool. They set out to study how concepts of race factor into children’s definitions of themselves and others, and how they lead to either inclusion or exclusion. They were also interested in the development of racially motivated control and power, as well as adults’ misunderstandings of children’s ability to conceptualize race.
This black empowerment book lends credence to the idea that children pick up on the differences of others at a young age and will use those traits for their own benefit. Read it and add its inferences and conclusions to your bank of empirical data about how people intuitively develop their concepts of racial identity.
