ABC Pushes View Whites Should Not Adopt Black Children
I’ve always appreciated and looked up to individuals who adopt children and take great care of them. Keyword, take care of them. (Because we know some trifling people do it for a check) There are so many risks when you adopt children, and it takes a special person to open up their home to a child and make them feel like part of the family when they have no connection to them beforehand. But I’ve noticed a lot of talk lately about the fact that big name white celebrities have been adopting black and bi-racial kids. There’s been a great deal of apprehension about it. A lot of people, mostly black folks, aren’t as excited about it, some claiming celebrities adopt black children like they’re the newest handbag or accessory. But others do bring up the valid point that there is a worry that adopted black children may wind up not being fully exposed to their culture and heritage, making it hard for them to relate to their own people. But what do you think?
I've thought the exact same thing & talked to those types of parents too. I also don't understand how some white families are willing to go all the way to a place like China to adopt an Asian child that everyone will know is adopted but they won't adopt a black child from our own country. The video made me laugh a little (the funniest part was when the guy found the little girl in his yard stealing apples & she turned out to be the narrator of the video), but I can see how some people might be offended by it.5. Diversity in the home. Some families who already have white children adopt black children so their white children are exposed to a different race and culture, creating a diverse atmosphere to make their experiences in the real world more serene. It’s all about the learning experience.4. Trendy – People see celebrities do it, and adopting a black child is the “in thing” to do. Some assume celebrities do it as a financial move to somehow attract or gain the support of black people or for publicity. It is like the carrying of a small dog in a purse to most people; it’s a new trend.Even though people have their opinions about whites adopting black children look at the number of black children who are raised in foster care and the psychological effect it has on them as children and during adolescence. Some result into a life of crime.
