Claim: Kids who say 'yuck' may be racist

LONDON, July 7 (UPI) -- Toddlers who say "yuck" when given flavorful foreign food may be exhibiting racist behavior, a British government-sponsored organization says.

The London-based National Children's Bureau released a 366-page guide counseling adults on recognizing racist behavior in young children, The Telegraph reported Monday.

The guide, titled Young Children and Racial Justice, warns adults that babies must also be included in the effort to eliminate racism because they have the ability to "recognize different people in their lives."

The bureau says to be aware of children who "react negatively to a culinary tradition other than their own by saying 'yuck'."

"Racist incidents among children in early years settings tend to be around name-calling, casual thoughtless comments and peer group relationships," the guide says.

Staff members are advised not to ignore racist actions and to condemn them when they occur.

What kinda PC horseshit is this?
I heard about it this morning on The Laura Ingraham Show
I knew the brits were all about being politically correct but this is beyond insanity
I don't understand it either, but, what's worse is that these are people who get money from the government, and they are the ones making the pronouncemnt!

It's absolutely absurd, but the sooner the UK gets rid of Labour, the better.
Wasn't Blair Labour too?
Yes he was, but he was very good friends with President Bush and supported us during 9/11. Thank God Tony Blair was there, because if Gordon Brown had been there - - I doubt he would have supported us.

Darn, I can not find Blair's 9/11 speech. So sorry. But it was one of the best speeches ever. Right up there with Bush's Axis of Evil speech.
How ridiculous!
