Ten Little Niggers

Racial Discrimination in Children's Books

By Wulf Schmidt-Wulffen

Harmless and funny, ...or racist? In children's books, we all remember the catchy melody and the controversy around insulting terms, such as "Negro" ...and others terms. What was the purpose of this? To promote colonialism and exploitation, or to serve as a means of education? Where does such a thinking come from that downgrades Africans and Blacks? Are these questions outdated? Not at all. In an immigration society, we cannot avoid addressing such issues - in everyday life as well as in education. This book examines the issue in the form of children's literature.
