They pick it up from their families, their friends, and/or the internet. There is a tremendous amount of anti-semitism festering online lately, and in case you haven't noticed, kids spend a LOT of time online.

There were numerous news reports during the campaign that even elementary school kids were using Trump's behavior as a cue to bully their classmates and taunt them that they would be deported soon. Hatred that had been kept under wraps has been uncorked thanks to our Bully in Chief and his mean-spirited followers. Not all Trump supporters are hateful, but Trump does appeal to the racist and misogynist segments of our society, and now they're proudly pouring out of the woodwork. Whenever religious groups start being targeted for scape-goating, Jews are always part of it. Trump appointing a neo-nazi as his top advisor certainly hasn't helped.

Baileybrat, take it to the study.

Thank You Bobcat.

This is learned behavior period. Children repeat what they hear. Clearly a product of their own environment. I don't believe for one minute that it was caused by the political turmoil happening right now. Children of this age know the difference between right and wrong.

Even those whose development is most advanced are still subject to peer pressure.

It is definitely learned behavior, but that does not come only from parents and peers. The internet today is a powerful force on children - and adults. To simply turn a blind eye to it and ignore the reality is folly.

I vote some kids will zoom in on whatever vulnerability/reaction they can find to pick on someone. This is that child's area. Most kids figure out not to react even for sensitive areas so that the bullies get no reaction and eventually stop.

Yes, it can be difficult for some people to let go of their hatred.

A teacher has also filed a complaint. If you think that antisemitism wasn't at the forefront of anything than you are sadly mistaken - it goes with the fear of any minority - anyone who is different. If you thank that children don't pick it up at a young age than that to is wrong. Sadly all you need is one child to start making antisemitic remarks and then others will join in. If you are white and christian and living up here than you are in the majority and would have no idea how frightening it could be to be a minority. If you'd like to experience it for yourself go to certain parts of New Mexico - walk alone at night in parts of Harlem - visit the deep south. BaileyBrat nailed the situation with facts and sensitivity. Here is another new clip about the teacher's letter https://www.yahoo.com/news/more-complai ... 28204.html

wow - that video suggests the anti-semitism is a problem with the administration and teachers. Perhaps they found the source.

I thought that fear of being a minority in neighborhoods is a sign of being racist.

Here is the definition of a racist - nothing to do with fear of being a minority - has everything to do
with feeling superior and that other groups are inferior - https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/racist

3 :racial prejudice or discrimination

If the person that was in the minority in a situation, believed the people around him were just like them - a human being, then that person would not feel uncomfortable. An aware person would ask themselves why they are afraid/uncomfortable and take that to heart.
