  • Do you only frequent places that are overwhelmingly white?
  • Do you voice stereotypes about people of color (POC) in front of your children?
  • Do you say racial slurs in front of your children?
  • Do you encourage your children to have friendships with children of different races?
  • Do you ignore racism when you see it or make excuses for racist behavior, including your own?
  • Do you allow family members or friends to make racist comments in front of your children and say nothing?
