Even 6-month-olds notice differences in race and gender, according to a six-year longitudinal study led by Phyllis Katz, Ph.D., founding director of the Boulder, CO-based Institute for Research on Social Problems.When the kids in her study turned 3, Dr. Katz began testing to see if they had formed opinions about what they saw.She showed them photos of other kids, some white, some black, and asked questions like "Which child spilled the paint?Which child won the award for being the smartest?"
The result: 35% of 3-year-olds preferred their own race."There was a tendency for white kids to choose white kids for good things, black kids for bad things," says Dr. Katz."Similarly, black 3-year-olds associated the black children in the photos with positive qualities, the white kids with the negative."This trend among black children changes as they get older.By 5, many associate positive qualities with whites, though they tend to swing back to being more pro-black by age 8.It may be that as children reach school age, they pick up on societal attitudes about race, says Dr. Katz.
