Children are incapable of harboring prejudice, a fact that must be highlighted in a culture in which a significant number of adults resort to bigotry and racist stereotypes.
This incident indicates that we may have much to gain from the younger generation, despite the fact that adults may assume they always know better than the younger age.
In 2017, Lydia Stith Rosebush was the one who first shared this remarkable story on the Love What Matters Facebook page, and it skyrocketed to popularity almost immediately after that.
Now having read the story, it is clear to me why it happened that way.
The fact that Jax, Lydia’s five-year-old son, and Reddy, his best friend, look so much alike that they may be twins is the one thing about which Jax is absolutely positive.
According to Jax, the only noticeable difference between the two best friends is that Jax’s hair is styled to stand up, whilst Reddy’s hair is kept short.
Jax came to the conclusion that the best way to prank Reddy’s instructor would be to get a haircut over the weekend and then do a short prank on her the following Monday.
So if they both had the same haircut, there is no way their instructor could detect the difference between the two of them.
On Facebook, Jax announced that he couldn’t wait until Monday, when he would wear his hair in a similar style to that of Reddy’s so that his teacher wouldn’t be able to tell them apart.
Lydia stated in an online post, “I don’t know what else to say if this isn’t evidence that hatred and racism are taught.” According to Jax, the only difference between the two of them is that they have different hair.
A little over 85,000 people liked the post, and it was shared more than 25,000 times in less than a week.
Many visitors to our website have written their very own anecdotes about how prejudice-free today’s youth are and contributed them.
A German educator related the details of a discussion that she had overheard taking place between a mother and her son.
When asked by his mother about the number of people of different ethnicities that were enrolled in his class, the child replied, “None, Mom.” Only children and teenagers are enrolled in my course.
Despite the fact that their sweet love story went viral a few years ago, there is no evidence to suggest that Jax and Reddy have ended their relationship.
They give off the impression of being the best of friends, in point of fact…
Do we not have a lot to pick up from the experiences of our own children?
You can encourage others to support Jax’s incredible mission by sharing this post. It is my goal that adults will stop forming their opinions based solely on outward looks…
