[Babysitting some Asian kids. They see a birthday party for a black family. The following conversation with the 6-year-old ensues.]
Boy: There’s a lot of brown people over there.
Me: Oh, you don’t say things like that.
Boy: But there are, right? Like that’s the color of their face and their legs and their body.
Me: Um, yes that’s true…but that’s not the most important thing about them.
Boy: We’re not brown.
Me: No, we’re not…
Boy: We’re more like…peach.
