Very young kids can make some really embarrassing 2+2= 5 observations. Before assuming it has anything to do with race, ask her why she thinks that. At 3 years old, she doesn't understand that people can have vastly different skin colours. Young kids often assume there is something wrong with the other child. When meeting a person of a different race for the first time it's very common for light skinned kids to think the darker skin is dirt. For dark skinned kids it's far more scary, because they often think the lighter skinned person has had their skin removed.
"You've got to be taught To hate and fear, You've got to be taught From year to year, It's got to be drummed In your dear little ear You've got to be carefully taught. You've got to be taught to be afraid Of people whose eyes are oddly made, And people whose skin is a diff'rent shade, You've got to be carefully taught." --Rodgers and Hammerstein
That’s not cool. You should have spanked her butt right there in front of everyone and took her home to bed without dinner. That should have been a memorable lesson for your daughter. That’s not how a young lady behaves! I can’t believe you just sat there and finished your meal! Be better parents!!
I hope you made a big show of correcting her and teaching her differently.
Does she go to Daycare? Who babysits her the most? Outside of you and your wife, who does your daughter get the most interaction with? If you ever figure it out, you definitely need to to cut them out of your lives, you don't need some racist teaching her how to become one as well.
