One of my children has a book:
801 Questions Kids Ask About God, with answers from the bible.
One of the questions in the book is... Why did God make people red and yellow, black and white? The answer: Can you imagine a world in which everyone looked the same--the same height, weight, color of hair, lenghth of nose, color of eyes, size of ears, and color of skin? That would be boring--and how would we tell people apart? Instead, God created all kinds and colors of people. Some are tall; some are short; some are brown; some are pink; some have straight black hair; some have curly red hair. They are all special to God. He created them, and he wove each person together in their mother's womb. Don't you just love the diffrences and what makes you special? God Does!
KEY VERSE: In this new life, it doesn;t matter if you are a Jew or a Gentile, circumcised or uncircumsied, barbaric, uncivilized, slave, or free. Christ is all that matters, and he lives in all of us. (Colossians 3:11)
It's that simple!! Who cares what color of anything you have. God loves you! Therefore we all should Love and not judge. We are aware that when our girls get home someone is going to judge them or us. Even Christians. Someone will judge the color of skin our girls have. They will pick that one thing and judge them. Color of skin?? Why does that matter so much? When in fact if you were to line up our families arms together in a row, they would not all match. There are several different shades.
That is just complete ignorance to me.
Have you ever heard of some one with straight hair absoulutely not like anyone with curly hair? Or have you heard of someone with green eyes say I will not like anyone whom doesn't have green eyes(I'm sure some where in this great big world there is). It's absurd to me!! Try and look far beyond the outside of someone, find out what's inside. Teach your children the same! Because children are taught prejudice, until then they are open to anything.
