Just as adults often find themselves on the wrong side of history, so too do children. The difference is that many of the children involved in racism and war were there not out of their own volition, but instead because of their parents' ideology or their repressive government. This has happened under historical dictatorships and at modern day protests against integration or equality.

Kids who didn't know better or were pushed into bad situations had pretty much no choice but to join these distasteful movements. Examples include child soldiers of the Axis powers, North Korean kids forced into a life of militarism, and children dragged to KKK rallies and Westboro Baptist Church protests. Often, these children look pained to be doing what they're doing, or totally uninterested. And we can only hope they'll leave it all behind once they're able to.

Here are pictures of kids on the wrong side of history, either in the past or present day.
