    Rosseta Stone has very racists picutres...

    I've been noticing that the people who are supposed to be families do generally look like each other with coloring and features. But there are some kids in there who look biracial/mullatto. One guy in Italian Level 1, Unit 2, Lesson 1 (at the end) is a person whom I've never seen in prior lessons; the man appears along with a boy whom I've never seen either. From deduction, one is to look at the White man and assume the Mixed boy is not his son, because the don't look exactly the same race. Whereas, everyone else in the other 3 pics are exactly the same race. This was weird because I know of many kids who are a blend of races, who have a parent who is White and one who is Black, and they look like that little boy; an in-between "mixed" look. It totally perpetuates a stereotype that biracial kids don't exist. Just wondering if the guy was Black, and it was the same Mixed boy, if they would use that pic for the same question.
