When is racism ignorance?

A brave child reported a racist comment.

I spoke to the child who expressed the hateful words. It was obvious that she didn't know what she was talking about.

I congratulated the child who spoke up, and I educated the child who had expressed the harmful words.

Sometimes prejudice and racism is the product of ignorance, and when this occurs a little education goes a long way.
