Things I've learned being a stay at home dad

My 5 year old loves to watch House with me. I told him last week that Dr. House wouldn't be the main doctor in the hospital, but instead Dr. Foreman would be.

"Which one is Dr. Foreman?"

"The bald guy with the brown skin."

"Oh, what's he do?"

"He is a Neurologist."

"Oh. Is that what all brown people are?"

". . . yes."

I've learned now, that I shouldn't teach him this because it could ultimately confuse him later on down the road. Just for a second though, don't agree that teaching kids a new positive "N" word could change or maybe even eliminate racism?
