Making judgments about kids you don't know based on their skin tone is not necessarily racism. It could just be good business. Look at advertising, fund raising, etc. If I am asked about what type of music or food or sports a kid might like I would likely make a judgment that a black kid preferred one kind and a white kid another. I might be right or I might be wrong. But it is not racist. Racism is prejudice, discrimination or adverse treatment because of their skin color. Cultural likes and dislikes are not racism although some people try to make it so.You know the Brockermeyers? Are they pretty cool?
Can only assume you know them personally to refer to them as privileged white boys. Otherwise you would be making judgments about kids you don’t know based on their skin tone - commonly referred to as racism.
