CNN study

CNN's Anderson Cooper talks with children about their skin color preferences.

The discussion of race is never a black and white issue, and recent “AC360°” and CNN.com reports about young children’s attitudes on race became one of the most discussed stories on the site, eliciting more than 4,500 comments.

In the study, white children had an overwhelming bias toward white, and black children also had a bias toward white, but it was not nearly as strong as the bias shown by the white children.

Read more of the story, watch videos of parents’ reactions, and look into how the study was done here.

Singer John Legend joins the discussion as AC360’s” special coverage “Black or White: Kids on race,” continues tonight at 10pm ET
