Are children colour-blind to race? Not at all. In fact, I can recall an encounter with a classmate of a different race between ages 7-10.
The pupils in my class were wondering why one of the pupils had darker skin than the rest of us. Some even questioned if she washed her hands every day and asked her to try washing off the dark colour. Why did we doubt her actual skin colour? Because we noticed that her palms were much fairer than the top of her hands, so we assumed that her palm colour was her actual skin colour. Our teacher later clarified that everyone is different and that we should learn to accept each other.
As adults, it is our responsibility to educate the children (as early as possible) about showing acceptance towards peers of various races as well as answer questions about each one anothers' race. This may help reduce unpleasant interactions or humiliating situations for the minorities.

Production costs, cast salaries and a whole host of other considerations make Hi 5 what it is today. Boasting more than 10 seasons is no easy feat. It's even more impressive that the original cast stayed onboard for 5 seasons or more. It was painful to see them go.
What happened offset that made them leave seemed like what happened with the original Power Rangers cast - it was cheaper to hire young, fresh faces. As much as I dislike how artificial and more Candyland-like the newer seasons look and feel, I still have to hand it to the new cast for being brave and staying strong in standing up to all the negativity.
As an adult, I'm glad that the Hi 5 legacy continues thus far so that each generation has great educational music and a diverse group of role models to grow up with.
Let's hope that everyone working on and off the Hi 5 set get along wonderfully so that the children get to see genuine smiles on the cast's faces.

While correcting a pupil's work, I ended up writing a paragraph of my own.
I sprinted past several eggshell-coloured blocks of flats, sidestepped past startled onlookers at the bus stop before dashing through the dull green metal gates. With my heart pounding in my chest, I plopped myself down onto my seat, next to Ben, my best friend. With a plump face and mouth agape, he started at me with incredulous awe.
"Are you crazy, Sam? Why are you so late for the exam?" he mouthed.
Before I could respond, the school bell rang.
"You may begin," the teacher said.
