The book, Hearing Everyone’s Voice: Educating Young Children for Peace and Democratic Community, contains some important thoughts on countering stereotypes:
“The idea of stereotyping – doing the we-they thing, that we are good and they – like all the ‘theys’, are bad – comes from a place of dehumanizing those ‘other’ people. If you don’t think of those ‘other’ people as human beings with the same feelings you have, you can inflict any kind of pain and suffering on them. But the minute you begin to see those ‘other’ people as a mom who has kids, and a child who’s afraid of the dark like you’re afraid of the dark, you can no longer treat them quite as separately from yourself as you might have otherwise.”
