Alex Santoso's Comments

A key finding from the article:

And they didn't need a reward for their assistance. In fact, the toddlers were less likely to help a second time if they were given a toy afterward, the study found.

"Children appear to have an intrinsic motivation to help," psychologists Felix Warneken and Michael Tomasello concluded. "And extrinsic rewards seem to undermine it."

You're misreading the sentence:

"Prosperity rose during the 1960s. The housing industry became more powerful, and many families had enough money to trade up from their wartime houses—especially white, middle-class families who had been able to build wealth through home equity."

In the 1960s, the majority of the middle-class was white. They also made the majority of homeownership. Since then, socioeconomic profile of the United States has changed (and, to this day, continue to change). The sentence itself is not racist - it merely reflected the socioeconomic profile of the era.
