People loved his curiosity and her answers.

His questions were so genuine and her responses were so calm 😭

kids are so innocent omg

Shows like these are so important. Well done Channel 4

And said it showed why racism is taught.

Idk why but this really warmed my damn heart. If there was EVER any confusion about racism let this be your clarification. Racism is TAUGHT. You’re NOT born racist. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

You know when he asked if there are any Muslim toys & his mum broke it down to him in a way that would make sense to kids ? That’s why he’s so pure. Racism/islamophobia is taught.

You can watch the show here.

Children from the same neighbourhood, but different cultural, ethnic and economic backgrounds, go on a playdate at each other's home for the very first time. #HowTheOtherKidsLive tonight at 8pm
