Telegraph: Babies learn racial bias

Baby A study of babies interacting with each other found babies can show racial bias, reports the Telegraph.

The research by the University of Washington, Seattle revealed babies will choose a playmate who shares toys equally regardless of race.

But on the other hand, when a baby distributes toys unfairly in a manner that benefits others of their own race, then babies want to be playmates with that person.

Babies are also more likely to help babies of their own race. The phenomenon is known as in-group bias.

Another experiment involved an equal number of Asian babies and white babies.
The results show babies can consider both fairness and social history when considering who to play with.

You can read how that experiment developed in the Telegraph.
