Young children often have a pro-white bias, as a colour. o Lots of data to back this out, but researchers have not figured it out. o Perhaps it was because of media, where superheroes tend to be adorned in white while the villains are dressed in black. In adolescence, begin to understand the social implications of ethnicity. o This age group tend to care more about race, despite popular belief.
