A children's book about white privilege created to help facilitate tough conversations about race, privilege and oppression. It tells the story of two best friends, a white car and a black car, that have different experiences and face different rules while entering the same race. As early as 6 months, a baby's brain can notice race-based differences, by ages 2 to 4, children can internalize racial bias and start assigning meaning to race. 5 to 8-year-olds begin to place value judgments on similarities and differences. By age 12 children have a complete set of stereotypes about every racial, ethnic, and religious group in society. Our guidance is especially crucial during this impressionable time. Race Cars offers a way to introduce these complicated themes to our children.
