Racism Explained to My Daughter (by Tahar Ben Jelloun, 1998, ISBN 88-7754-206-3) is a book in which the author, during a demonstration against an immigration law in Paris, answers his daughter's questions about the reasons for racism.

The author's intent was to explain, with this book, the modern "trauma" that racism is to children and to help adults answer their children's questions on racism. The author says, though, that children are more likely to understand that one isn't born racist, but becomes it. Adults are not likely to change their ideas.
