This article just tells me that Hispanics don't really care what happens to their orphaned and foster children; otherwise, there would be thousands of good Catholic Hispanic Parents waiting in line to protect "their" children and "their" culture and "their" language. 250 families in a state which has a very-large population of Hispanics residing in it is certainly a very sad and poor testament of the Hispanic community's dedication and resolve in this matter.
What are the goals and objectives for this new outreach program? To find parents to preserve a culture and foreign language or to find a loving and caring home for a child? Yea, let's get the dept. of Human Services involved so the children can be placed in homes where their teenaged clients are starved and weigh only 45lbs. when they reach 19 yrs. old and where children under their care are murdered and burried in basements.
And, now that we are going to place children according to culture and ethnicity, I guess we can't "traumatize" a Polish Child by placing him with a Greek or Italian family, could we? When will this nonsense ever stop?
Where is the foster father? Only single mothers need be praised? Where are the stories of the single hispanic father? Fatherhood must be verboten.
The same special interests that messed up adoption of black babies by white and mixed race families are at work here. I'm pretty sour against these groups because my mom was rejected by the state adoption agency because she was not a citizen (but really it was because my father was a white man).
Are all of the children proven to be here legally? If not, they should either be deported, or the Mexican govt should be picking up the tab for their care.
YOu must realize that Spanish is the culture of force.. and also the language of force.. kids here in s california have no choice in either... it is spanish only.. their cultures, holidays and traditions.. language..
OK, but do we put a poor, black Dominican child from Paterson in the house of a wealthy, blonde Argentinean couple in Ridgewood?
A loving family is a loving family. The idiocy and racism of the left on the adoption issue never ceases to piss me off.
I spose it wont 'traumatize' them to take 'white folks' money for their projects programs
and other race baiting ripoffs and scams
Obviously, all other things being equal it's better to be placed with a white (or, any) foster parent than none at all, but I don't see why it's necessarily flawed to view being Hispanic as a potential advantage for a foster parent when placing a Hispanic kid.
Caveat: If we're talking about kids who are very young (or, grown up enough not to care anymore...), I'd guess that this factor kind of disappears, since how are they going to know either way? A two-year-old probably hasn't soaked up enough of his mother's "culture" to be "shocked" by another, or at least, to be shocked any more than he already is by being apart from his mother for whatever reason.
And I'm sure that at least some, perhaps most of the people pushing the "it's better for Hispanic kids to be placed with Hispanic foster parents" line would disagree with me about that, they'd say "no, even for two-year-olds, even for babies, they should have a Hispanic foster parent!!!". Otherwise they're "losing their culture"!!! In other words, I'm pretty sure a lot of the social-worker-type people who make these decisions, view "culture" in the usual lefty sort of way, as a race-determined absolute to be preserved for its own sake, especially if it's nonwhite (for all the usual multi-culti reasons). And, I certainly don't. On that I would part company with them, if that's what they're saying.
Maybe the culture is the problem ?
Maybe if the politicians would stop pandering to illegals, there wouldn't be such an imbalance.
And it should be obvious that any culture which produces so many children in need of government assistance is superior. Heaven forbid we should remove anyone from it.
If she wants culture, she should go back to her own country.
Try publicly stating that you want to rear your children in "white" culture and you'd be arrested by the hate police.
Only "whites" are not allowed to have a "culture" that they can impart to their children.
Housing discrimination is another well-kept state secret. Many landlords would rather rent to those on assistance, because they can be sure of the government check. Sometimes they prejudge you before you get out of the car - if you're white, don't bother.
I have nothing good to say here.
