    Everytime I look at the news I see white people adopting black or asian children. I would like to know why the sudden intrest in black children are they some kind of trophy. There are children in other countries that are elligible for adoption so I don't understand why black children.::confused:

    Every time? Seriously? Gee, that's weird. I hadn't realized it was so newsworthy.

    Would you rather have them dumped into mass graves while still alive?

    I think adoption is a pretty good alternative.

    So these people adopting children should go to other countries and only adopt white children? And they shouldn't adopt Black or Asian children from the USA?

    I am POSITIVE the reason they adopt children of other races is so they can hold them up like trophies. I'm POSITIVE it's not because they want to offer these children a home with loving parents, right?

    Maybe it is because those children need good homes regardless, even if the adoptive parents are white. Children do not see black, yellow or white skin when they are fed, clothed and loved.

    I have a great new pair of black boots and bag, think I should get one of these black babies to match or would that be toooo tacky?

    Be careful, some on these boards may take you serious.

    I prefer adopting puppies that are more likely to match my fuzzy boots and I'm really serious.

    Good point.

    For the seriously stupid: My post was sarcastic in response to total stupidity in the OP. Unless the OP can provide evidence that every news program covers white people adopting black children, I think it is total stupidity, hence the stupid response. Of course, i would not adopt a black child to match my outfit. I don't like children. :lol:

    However, I'm seriously gonna consider the puppy option. I love puppies.

    For their potential earnings as professional athletes.





    Christ almighty, some people don't care about what color child they adopt. That's a good thing, why question their motives? Especially when their motives are really quite simple. They want children.

    If our society is supposed to be color blind, then race shouldn't matter. But I am acquainted with several black social workers who don't want whites adopting black children. They consider that child to be lost to the black community.
