Suggested Responses: Students should explain that in the mid-20th century, a myth of self hatred was perpetuated, which posited that children of color hated themselves or their ethnic background and wished to be White. Studies in which researchers presented dolls or images of individuals with various racial background to children of color supported this myth: children were more likely to choose the White doll or image. Students should note that these studies failed to account for the fact that children may have chosen the doll or image that they believed the researcher wanted them to choose, or that they were unconsciously swayed by the researchers' preferences, and that indeed many children have a considerable amount of ethnic pride that can even buffer them from the effects of prejudice.
