Race, remember when the black community freaked out about whites adopting black children?

This should make for a great measurement of our racial divide. I also have a question, does anyone know how many white children have been adopted by bi-racial or black families. I will omit the Asian community and the native American community to keep the argument in a more viable light. However, their may at some point need to be the injection of numbers of these adoptions to note progress or regression.

Why create a race baiting thread like this?

Isn't there enough division already?

Black white pink or purple, baby's require parents the colour of which is simply irreverent.

I do not remember that. I do recall an occasional statement like that by celebrity maybe. Didn't really care about their opinion of someone else's child in need of a loving home, don't care now.

And I bet the "Black community" didn't and doesn't either.

Yes there are cases when black people adopt white kids but they faced racism.




Several pairs of eyes follow the girl as she pedals around the playground in an affluent suburb of Baltimore. But it isn't the redheaded fourth grader who seems to have moms and dads of the jungle gym nervous on this recent Saturday morning. It's the African-American man—six feet tall, bearded and wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt—watching the girl's every move. Approaching from behind, he grabs the back of her bicycle seat as she wobbles to a stop. "Nice riding," he says, as the fair-skinned girl turns to him, beaming. "Thanks, Daddy," she replies. The onlookers are clearly flummoxed.

As a black father and adopted white daughter, Mark Riding and Katie O'Dea-Smith are a sight at best surprising, and at worst so perplexing that people feel compelled to respond. Like the time at a Pocono Mountains flea market when Riding scolded Katie, attracting so many sharp glares that he and his wife, Terri, 37, and also African-American, thought "we might be lynched." And the time when well-intentioned shoppers followed Mark and Katie out of the mall to make sure she wasn't being kidnapped. Or when would-be heroes come up to Katie in the cereal aisle and ask, "Are you OK?"—even though Terri is standing right there.

Is it racism? The Ridings tend to think so, and it's hard to blame them. To shadow them for a day, as I recently did, is to feel the unease, notice the negative attention and realize that the same note of fear isn't in the air when they attend to their two biological children, who are 2 and 5 years old. It's fashionable to say that the election of Barack Obama has brought the dawn of a post-racial America. In the past few months alone, The Atlantic Monthly has declared "the end of white America," The Washington Post has profiled the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People's struggle for relevance in a changing world, and National Public Radio has led discussions questioning the necessity of the annual Black History Month. Perhaps not surprising, most white and black Americans no longer cite racism as a major social problem, according to recent polls.

Seriously, why is race an issue?

Look as long as the parents are good role models, I don't see any problems.

The more people of any race willing to adopt children of any race and become loving parents...the better.
Love should be colorblind.

Ya know, its only a race thing when people make it that way. Lots of people out there can have civilized discussions about these things without having an ounce of racism in the discussion.

And honestly, its usually the people crying "OMG RACE BAITING" that get that racist ball rolling.

theres a long sad evil traceable history of europeans taking the children of indigenous people and reprograming them. look at native americans, africans and aborigines for an example. Why would whites even need to adopt children of color. most likely a side effect of colonialism, slavery or some other injustice

Okay, you got us.

White people only adopt black kids to reprogram them, we're trying to bring about slavery 2.0 through multi-generational social engineering and our secret white-man power (caucasian persuasion). They also make great fashion accessories, kind of like one of those charity wristbands but this one says "I'm not racist". You caught us red handed. Why else would a white family adopt a black baby? You saw right through our plan.

The above post is sarcasm.
