It can also help to explain that some children have had such bad experiences because of racial prejudice that they feel angry toward white people or people from groups different from their own. This should not be said to excuse a particular behavior, but to help the white child understand some of the larger social issues.

Healthy relationships between races can't be based on guilt. Good friendships need to be based on mutual respect and equality.
