Kids and Race

We were sitting at breakfast, and Claire said, "Some people have dark brown skin, and it looks spooky!"

I was mortified, but I think I handled it well. I said, "it's not spooky, it's beautiful!" and I reminded her of all our friends who are "brown."

How do you address comments about peoples' race in public? How about in private?
