That's an interesting finding. My understanding was that kids that young don't generally fall prey to such things.

I'd really love to know how long the effect lasts. It clearly demonstrates kids are susceptible to priming, but does it also show learning? Perhaps this could be a novel way of tackling bigotry in many forms.
