In der Kindersendung "Sesamstraße" setzen zwei neue schwarze Puppen in den USA ein Zeichen gegen Rassismus. Der "Sesamstraße"-Bewohner Elmo, ein kleines rotes Pelzmonster, trifft in einem neuen Spot den kleinen Wes und seinen Vater Elijah. "Warum ist die Haut von Wes dunkel?", fragt Elmo geradeheraus Vater und Sohn in einem Park voller bunter Blätter. Die beiden antworten ihm - auf eine Art, die Kindern einen ihrem Alter entsprechenden Zugang zum Thema ermöglichen soll.

“I know Elmo,” Wes replied when asked about the color of his skin. “My mom and dad told me it had to do with melanin, didn’t they, dad?” The father: “That is correct. (…) Each of us has melanin in our body. It gives our body its color on the outside. It also gives our eyes and our hair that color.”

Elmo is fascinated and wants to know more about differences. Elijah explains: “The more melanin you have in your body, the darker your skin is. Our skin color makes up a lot of who we are. But we should all always be clear about one thing: that it is okay that we are all look different in so many ways. ”
